The Globe’s architect critic has his own opinions on the Mayor’s proposal for a 1,000-foot skyscraper:

There’s a place in Boston for skyscrapers, but this isn’t it – By Robert Campbell, The Boston Globe

Let’s put the big buildings where they don’t block the sun. A good example is the tower, long in the works, on air rights over the tracks at South Station. South Station is a logical site because there’s enough space and because the Red Line, Silver Line, Amtrak, and commuter rail all converge here. There are plenty of other developable sites — on the South Boston waterfront, on air rights over the Turnpike, around North Station, and elsewhere. They can’t all accept skyscrapers — the flight path from Logan prevents that — but they accept plenty of density. One can imagine the High Spine continuing through South Station onto the South Boston waterfront.
