Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 665 Commonwealth Avenue | BU Central

Re: Revere Developments

But how did Revere become a "bedroom community of the working poor"?

Was is ever a major shipping or fishing center? I never hear about it in the same breath as places like Salem or Gloucester....

Re: Photo of the Day, Boston Style: Part XI (2018)

FYI, I finally realized that we were still posting in the 2017 PhotoOTD thread and moved everything to a new thread. :/

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

It's the color of the little square next to the thread.

White = Proposed
Grey = Under Construction

Re: Bulfinch Crossing | Congress Street Garage | West End

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

It's the stop and restart of construction at Filene's that makes me hesitant to mark any project under construction until there is at least some actual building going on. I will probably change it...

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Per the Globe article above it is all approved and ready to start construction. I will change the status as soon as stuff starts poking out of the ground.

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

I assume it is construction because usually they forgo the netting if...
