All right, let's kick off this newest photo challenge [ b o s t o n c l o s e u p s ] with a detail of a door. Anybody know where this is or what it's about? #bostoncloseups #craftsmanship #ipulledoverforthis #seemycity #1927 #bronze #highreliefsculpture #adorebos #adoorebos #lookupboston

Lovely doorway. The banner depicts a man holding a toddler on a book. Is he a saint? An everyday Roman? A senator? UPDATE - THIS IS ST.

I LOVE shop signs with items that represent what they sell or do inside. After my meeting in #BeaconHill , I couldn’t help but wander around and admire them, especially overthinking how gruesome the spine on the chiropractor one is. #boston #localtourist #consultinglife #lookupboston #signssignseverywheresigns
The tower crane is 160 ft. high, which is the height of 11 floors of the new residential tower. To complete the rest of the 47 levels, the crane will anchor into the core and “climb” with #construction .
Check out the time-lapse from early June to see how #construction is progressing at #BulfinchCrossing
The @bostonfed is still one of my favorite buildings in #Boston . It’s unabashedly what it is...a federal building to securely hold money and people. It’s impressive but spare of detail or anything unnecessary. I wish they would take advantage of their security to activate their outdoor space better, but besides that, it’s perfect. #architecture #urbanadventures #summer2018 #fortpointchannel #consultinglife #lookupboston #knockknockletmein
The team is working to excavate the areas that will become the stormwater tank and future elevator core once the project is completed.
Yep, I went there - literally. Had to check out this Instafamous spot over the weekend. Isn’t it funny how people (read: me) want so badly to live where people stuck their horses back in the day?
I wish the @bostonfed #roofgarden was open to the public! Perfect day to be up there. I will have to figure out a meeting to attend to get out there again. #urbanadventures #lookupboston #rooftopterrace #funemployment #perfectday #fortpointchannel #boston
Happy Fourth of July from the Bulfinch Crossing team!
The #BulfinchCrossing team excavated the LBE in-fill panel in the core location. Below is a view of the process, facing South.

The #construction team worked to form the lower portion of the transfer wall, adjacent to the existing garage structure.
The team worked to lower the LBE rebar cage into its final elevation. Here is a view of the #construction facing West.
In April 2018, the #construction team at #BulfinchCrossing worked to dig into the soft rock using the clamshell excavator.

Construction at #BulfinchCrossing continued earlier this Spring as the team put in the footing for the foundation of the new #residential building.
Funny how I have been coming to the Prue from the other direction and haven’t clearly seen this ginormous tower until now. Off to @northeastern for a three day workshop on #sciencecommunication . #lookupboston #newconstruction #alwayslearning #boston
As the site prepares for the rise of the new residential tower, construction at Bulfinch Crossing will begin to go vertical. Be sure to follow our social channels for more progress updates.
Progress continues at #BulfinchCrossing . Here are some photos of the construction on site from March 2018.

Thank you to all who attended our Annual Meeting last night in the gorgeous @oldsouthchurch sanctuary, where Chris Scoville @cwscoville was named Board Chair and Sean Geary was elected Treasurer. Chris and Sean first joined the Alliance as Young Advisors @bos_yngadvisors. Now they will lead an impressive Board of Directors and help guide Boston's leading historic preservation advocacy organization! Congratulations, Chris and Sean!! 👏👏The presentation by James Lindberg of the Preservation Green Lab at @savingplaces also had us talking. Will the tools and incentives to repurpose older buildings that work in other cities be effective for us in Boston? Follow along as we explore these and other issues during our 40th Anniversary year. (And if you haven't already, make it a point to see the inside of the New Old South Church at Copley Square!) #preservationbucketlist #preservationbucketlist12 #historicpreservation #Boston #CopleySquare #nationalregisterofhistoricplaces #ihaveathingforwalls #stainedglass #lookupboston #bostonlife #sacredspaces #advocacy #announcements #detail #interiorarchitecture

The team at Massey’s Plate Glass & Aluminum is working on the curtain wall mock-up for performance testing for the first residential tower at Bulfinch Crossing.

Located in the heart of downtown Boston, redevelopment in the #BulfinchTriangle neighborhood will transform the cityscape at large.
107 mini-piles were installed using this pile-driver. Mini-piles go an average of 100 feet deep.
Warmer weather has thinking of exterior projects we’ve competed! #75statestreet was completed in two phases to accommodate for weather and cooling temps. The iconic #gilding was stripped and refinished with 24k #goldleaf . #lookupboston #exteriorgilding #architecturalrestoration
The team has successfully completed 3 caissons and 107 mini-piles as part of the deep foundation design to support the new residential tower at Bulfinch Crossing.
Dont forget to join us tomorrow from 5:30 to 7:30 for a celebratory cocktail or two at Carrie Nation in Beacon Hill! Help us kick off our 10th year of supporting and promoting Boston's preservation scene! Carrie Nation was a firecracker of a prohibitionist in the 1920's, well known throughout the South for attacking saloons and taverns with a hatchet along with her all-female Home Defender's Army. Her notoriety led many bars to post signs declaring "All Nations Welcome but Carrie." #prohibitionera #bostonpreservationalliance #boston #cocktails #historicpreservation #10years #lookupboston

With seamless access to regional highways, MBTA stations, @hubway bikes and more, residents of Bulfinch Crossing will find that the sky’s the limit when it comes to getting around Boston.
The pigeons are roosting again on newspaper row. They are especially fond of the former Boston Post building (now Jewish Advocate building), which houses the oldest continuously-circulated English-language Jewish newspaper in the United States. #pigeons #goodmorning #lookupboston
Never noticed this building lit up in pretty colors before. #lookupboston
it's important to • look up • ... and i spent a good chunk of 2017 doing just that. . the last year hasn't been the best - not for me, not for many. the world is in a heightened state: of turmoil, toxicity, passion and emotion. and i tend to absorb that energy. so i spent a lot of time trying to keep things in perspective this year - to take a deep breath and remind myself that things may be tough, but they've been tougher. and when #perspective was reaaallly hard to find, i'd look up, and soak in my surroundings. i'd admire the ceiling tiles, or the clouds, or the lighting. . i believe that, when times are hard, it's even more important to • look up • ... for when you have to stretch the hardest to find the upside, that's where you discover the most. . may 2018 be a year where things are looking up. . . . . . #boston #bostonpubliclibrary #BOS #bostoncommons #barharbor #maine #cleveland #CLE #playhousesquarecleveland #newjersey #wtc #oculus #NYC #newyorkcity #financialdistrict #worldtradecenter #lookup #ceiling #clouds #lookupnyc #lookupboston #lookupnj #lookupcleveland #newyearseve #resolution #goals #intentions #goodbye2017
