The proposed building is too large for the corner, despite the apparent precedent set by the Maynard/Fletcher Academy and the George Close building at that intersection. The Close Building was a manufacturing building that was more compatible, in the past, with a heavily industrial and blue collar working class neighborhood. Think Squirrel Brand Candy Co. on Boardman Street, NECCO Candy Factory on Mass Ave at the end of Windsor Street, or Lever Brothers Soap Co in what is now the Draper Laboratory area. These are just a few of the manufacturing companies that supported the residents of the Port. That model does not seem appropriate for a more residential neighborhood that the Port has now become. The notion that the proposed building will not block much sunlight misses the point that it will block sunlight nonetheless. Ask the residents of neighboring houses on Windsor St
