This building is not pretty enough to be on the river.

Looks better than the Berkman I at least.

Spell check the title of the article.  Aspire to be more than the Times Union in terms of grammar and spelling.

I'll believe it when I see it.  For now, just another flashy renderings.  At least there's not a water park, giant ferris wheel, or gondola though...

I don't really understand the concept of two "Riverwalks".

I do not understand your comment.

Well, if you look at the renderings and description in the article there is a subset walking path that runs parallel to the Riverwalk.  Just seems redundant to me at first glance to have 2 sets of pedestrians walking alongside one another divided by a fence.  Seems like a wasted use of that space in my humble opinion.

I guess one is more akin to the standard riverwalk, and the other is more of a plaza-type setting. I recall someone here being very adamant about larger setbacks from the river, hopefully this is a win for them.
So, to the young people fighting in this movement for change, here is my charge: march in the streets, protest, run for school committee or city council or the state legislature. And win. - Ed Markey

I am very happy they are including that plaza and riverwalk as well as retail around the parking.  We need to stop the parking garages built right up to the river like the south bank.  You can never undo that, really as these types of riverfront projects are built, they should require it.

I like it if it pans out and comes to fruition. I hope it gets built. It's pretty tall (yeah!)...for Jax (sad). Oh well, can't cry over spilled milk, hope it gets (get er) done.

Just read the article and saw KBJ designed it. They designed most of the buildings downtown many my favorites. So I guess this building will have to grow on me.

Will this development comply with the river height setbacks set by DIA?  Or, are we again making an exception?
