North point would have been a perfect place for some high rides. But nothing real tall has been built there.

Default Changing Boston

Interesting post for sure.

I don't think I would classify the change of Boston to be less diverse as making it better or more modern. It misses some of its unique charms and qualities then.

You did a great job listing some of the larger construction projects taking place. Any links or resources to see visuals on what the completed projects will look like so we can understand impact changes on city?

Skyline wise, there have been numerous projects that have been in development in the past few years:
1. One Dalton Street
2. The Hub On Causeway
3. Bulfinch Crossing
4. Seaport Development and Housing
5. Back Bay Station Project
6. South Station Tower
7. Copley Place
8. South End Projects
9. Allston Yards
10. Wynn Development Everett
... just a few

The city has been interested in by nearly every tech giant including Amazon's HQ2.
And the population over the past few 6 years has jumped from 617,000 to 675,000.
THe racial makeup of the city has dipped a bit below 45% white for the first time ever.

So, is Boston changing fast to become a nicer, more modern and better overall city?
Do you think that racially Boston will change since there has been a surge in Dominican, Haitian, Asian and Puerto Ricans?

I would love to see Boston turn into a more diverse and larger city personally, do you think it is going in that direction?
Randolph and Brockton seem to be growing African American strongholds, do you see anyother cities or towns in the future to standout or become like this?

Any predictions for 2050?

I predict that by 2050, Boston is roughly 30% White, 25% Hispanic, 25% Asian, 15% Black with about 850,000 residents with roughly 6 million people in the metro area. With cities like Somerville, Chelsea, Revere, Everett and Cambridge seeing a significant growth.
