10 Truly Mind-Boggling Reveals in Greater Boston This Year

Who could forget the Stairs of Fabulousness at Boston City Hall, unveiled in June?

The Brookline estate at 101 Fernwood Road was, for a time, the priciest listing in Greater Boston when it dropped in June for $18,000,000.
__


Also in June, TD Garden dropped renderings of what the renovated concourses on Levels 4 and 7 will look like.
__


The latest proposal for the redevelopment of the Harbor Garage debuted in (you guessed it) June, complete with lots of public space.
__


The Victor apartment complex at 110 Beverly Street in the West End-North End borderlands bounced into vu in January, half-basketball court included.
__


The new condos in the old Locke-Ober building in Downtown Crossing made their presence known starting in April. Above is an interior shot of a penthouse released in September.
__


The swanky apartments of Bay Village's Arlington, carved from an old school building, dropped in February.
__


The long-listed Benjamin Mansion at 74 Beacon Street re-presented itself in the spring post-renovations that included moving the kitchen from the basement to the first floor. It worked: the townhouse sold in October.
__


Plans were revealed in September for what's being called Congress Square, a gigantic retail-office-plaza space bordered by State, Devonshire, Water, and Congress streets in downtown Boston.

Southie's temporary public-private park the Lawn on D opened in August and has included cool accoutrements such as this "Swing Time" display in September by architect Höweler + Yoon with photos by John Horner Photography.
