Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

I agree SL1 is untenable. It should be a Logan Express surface route. Curb space at South Station is a problem that can be solved. Run the line in a bus lane down Summer with a couple stops along the...

Re: Bayside Expo Center Redevelopment | Columbia Point | Dorchester

Are there examples of real, successful TOD that link to subways via shuttle bus? Genuinely curious. It seems a rather tenuous prospect to me.

Re: McMansion Hell

Step 1: bid the $3.5M asking price, less the cost of 6 tons of TNT. Step 2: Sell newly-vacant land to Beton Brut. Step 3: Profit??!

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

Curious what people here think was the louder, more consequential "No" - Boston to the Olympics bid, or NYC to Amazon?

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

My impression is that the NYC technology scene is to a large extent centered around froufrou retail and consumer goods startups that give recent college grads the opportunity to hustle and hipsterize...

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

^ He's referring to NYC. Plans still on for Virginia and Nashville (I didn't actually know Nashville was ever part of HQ2...?) And no plans to reopen an HQ2 search.

Re: Silver Line to Chelsea

So the 1+HOV configuration is used in the direction of rush-hour traffic?

Re: Crazy Airport Pitches

Stick, I want to thank you or a really great idea. I think the NIMBY-nay-sayers are overestimating the resistance this would generate, assuming a great transit plan were put forward - for example,...

Re: Walpole Center Developments

Small tangent... what do people call the Route 1 corridor towns, as a region? Sometimes it's included as South Shore, but I think that's really pushing it. It's also clearly not Metrowest. I'm pretty...

Re: Walpole Center Developments

Thanks, Dave. Of all the towns on the Route 1 corridor, Walpole has one of the more vibrant and intact centers, with some funky little businesses that add a great deal of flavor. I love seeing it get...

I'm very confused about the new traffic pattern they're proposing. Can someone ELI5?

Re: Kenmore Sq

When they say "presenting a dramatic proposal" is this a real developer-backed proposal to the city, or more like a public exhibition of an idea?

Re: Continuum | Barry's Corner | Allston

It blows my mind that this is the same windswept, empty intersection I commuted through for years.

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

Sorry, I clarified in an edit above. To expand:

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

As was said above, simply remove SFR - everything east of Western/River.

Tie it in to the Pike at the Allston/Cambridge interchange - eastbound to eastbound, westbound to westbound. Arlington or...
