Altered Design for Russia Warf

The Globe is running an article about an altered design Boston Properties has put forward for Russia Warf, Developer takes 2d shot at Russia Warf.

The new design (the version on the right) has eliminated the awkward, diagonal columns at the bottom and is, in general, a more straightforward design. However, imho, it's still a huge, modern wall of glass that's is a poor fit for Boston, especially that location where it clashes with the historic buildings that sit in front of it and across the channel from it.

As someone who walks right by that block every morning on the way to the T, I hope the designers come to their senses and make it relate to low, historic buildings around it. If you have thoughts, please post a comment.
