Re: Suffolk Downs Redevelopment

You can't compare union and non-union developments in totally different settings. For comparison, the redevelopment of the Old Colony housing project in South Boston cost approx. $550K per unit,...

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

Definitely not the case. One Dalton is 80% sold, as is Pier 4. 22 & 50 Liberty sold out before C/O and there is less than a one month supply of inventory currently available (it's been like this...

Re: Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

I think it's just a huge block of nothing jammed on a tiny site. Hopefully, between this and Echelon they can activate the street experience but it's going to be challenging to say the least.

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Just FYI, 150 Seaport developers are building about 50 units of affordable housing in Southie and that is under construction, unusual because most projects don't start off site housing until they...

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

Interesting result from BCDC, in the BBJ today:

"The board on Tuesday evening voted three times — first on a motion to outright disapprove the project’s design for a second time, and then on a...

Re: Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

Actually, the lower balconies will have aviation wire instead of glass, better than solid metal panels I guess but why?

Re: Martin's Park | Children's Wharf | Fort Point

You are correct, it is just parking for the executive team at BCM.

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

I don't believe so, just "Seaport" now as it should have always been but "Innovation District" certainly helped get this neighborhood moving, but that's a whole other discussion :)

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

The ripples do seem to be the design intent but appear to me to be extremely poorly executed/installed. Can't imagine this would pass BPDA inspection, is the VMU on site?

Re: Martin's Park | Children's Wharf | Fort Point

There is indeed a $5M endowment for the park and 2 full-time employees, good planning by the City here.

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

Unfortunately not when 6.5 acres of land goes for $200M. Shame, Seaport would be a great location, especially for the other uses like concerts, etc.

Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

This looks great, love the contrast. The white bands on the low rise brick building may be unnecessary though.

Re: The New Retail Thread

The rents on Newbury are extremely high. Banks, pharmacies and loss leaders seem to be the only retail that can last there. I don't see much in the way of critical retail mass in the Seaport yet,...

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

While I agree the 'hallmarking' of society sucks and there is technically only one penthouse floor, I just don't get the effing and blinding about it.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

Why all the hatred for a simple marketing strategy that brands a few extra floors as PH's because they have additional features over the rest of the building? If you want the top floor, pay for it,...
