Re: Old Boston Edison Plant | Summer St | South Boston

This was first proposed well over 2 years ago. It's only now that objections to residential are coming up? Throwing wrenches into the already absurdly byzantine approval process is a major blood...

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

Why does the black trim on the right just stop there instead of continuing to the logical end point?

Re: Gables Seaport (née Waterside Place 1B) | 505 Congress Street | Seaport

Re: Cambridge Crossing (NorthPoint) | East Cambridge/Charlestown | Cambridge/Boston

Density is a subjective thing. Even if some stats say Cambridge is considered one of the more populated small cities it's hardly close to reaching any kind of growth limit (and who gets to decide...

Re: Cambridge Crossing (NorthPoint) | East Cambridge/Charlestown | Cambridge/Boston

The vast majority of Cambridge is low rise and relatively low density. A rare opportunity to build taller and denser has not been maximized to anywhere near its potential. Residential should be...

Re: Marriott Moxy Hotel | 240 Tremont Street (Parcel P-7A) | Theater District

Creative sign with a fun font. Guaranteed though some bonehead will try to do chin ups on the y descender and break it, it looks low enough to reach.

Re: MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

What a difference a few substantial towers makes. Future RIP to Eastgate though.

Re: Ink Block (Boston Herald) | 300 Harrison Avenue | South End

Your knee-jerk attack, rather than a thoughtful response, likely says a lot about you. No position pro or con was taken only a statement made that if it's pro-abortion publicly-owned land is not the...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

2 and a half billion dollars for a tacky casino? A vocational education/STEM campus would have looked much better here, American priorities could use a bit of recalibration.

Re: Ink Block (Boston Herald) | 300 Harrison Avenue | South End

Is this supposed to be in reference to abortion? If so this isn't the place for this kind of politics, keep it neutral.

Re: MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

How did this gradient goof happen? It should have been an easy calculus to figure out the proper percentage of color fade and fabricate accordingly. On an otherwise fine building it's not some small...

Re: MIT Campus infill and small projects

Interesting that the angled floor plate look is done with add-ons instead of being structural, they're falsies. The only sour note is the clunky exhaust stack, should have been more modernist. This...

Re: Office Tower | 125 Lincoln St | Leather District

I like it too. It's funky industrial constructivism that is all but absent in timid Boston.

On the far right is 60 Wall Street, the most atrocious building in NY. Peak PoMo madness. Never again.

Re: Harvard - Allston Campus

This is well done: minimalist, elegant and a fine focus for the quad. Mies would be pliesed.

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

A pedestrian death race to cross anywhere here and hopefully get to the other side alive. And no marked lanes!
