The last time we checked in on the progress of Arquitectonica‘s first project in Boston, the building’s structural skeleton was sprouting like a weed. But there was no sign yet of the sharp and sleek glazing that was marketed. That’s changed in the months since, with crews covering much of the concrete building with a royal blue skin.

Eventually reaching an apex of 30 storeys, the Samuels & Associates-developed Pierce Boston will pump 109 condominiums and 240 rental apartments into Boston’s growing housing stock. Rising from a narrow triangle-shaped site, the building still manages to squeeze in over 20,000 square feet of retail.

The ‘Levity Lounge’ on the 30th level is for owners, and reserved for a variety of activities, with a sun deck, a glass-floored dining room, and a library. Available as an upgrade, residents can utilize one of multiple view-rich sky cabanas, which come equipped with a wet bar and cozy seating areas. From here, it’ll be easy to catch a glimpse of flying baseballs from Boston’s famous Fenway Park, which is conveniently located just a few blocks away.
