Re: Thompson's Point, Portland

It was never going to be that large; it was going to have a few thousand seats to be an intimate setting for the Red Claws and later the circus school. Whether it's still part of the deal, or part of...

Re: Thompson's Point, Portland

The new Suburban Propane site on Riverside St. Is underway, and with a metal building in place there and nothing more than a slab for the new Children's Museum, my earlier prediction is correct: the...

Re: Portland Bayside

I thought the original plan for Midtown was for market-rate apartments? I don't doubt what you're saying, but I wouldn't have associated the project with what you're speaking of.

Re: Portland Bayside

Mr. Munro seems to be unclear on the difference between "misconception" and "difference of opinion".

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

I wonder if they had some final touch work going on in the Hub that closed it off, because when I went to the Bruins on Thanksgiving weekend they were using the new exit (see my photo a few pages...

Re: Rock Row (née The Ridge, née Dirigo Plaza) | Westbrook, ME

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

So, does anyone think there will still be a (T) meatball on the entry facade? There was originally supposed to be one in between "NORTH" and "STATION," but there isn't room on the sign that was put...

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

From what I see on the webcams, it looks like the topping-off flag is going up on the residential tower!

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

The TD Garden sign was mounted yesterday as well (visible on the live cam). But, isn't there supposed to be a (T) logo in between "North" and "Station"? (Plus, I hope the lighting behind the North...

Re: Rock Row (née The Ridge, née Dirigo Plaza) | Westbrook, ME

There is grading going on and some (I think) pile drivers on site. At one of the meetings they said they were planning on pouring the slab in the spring.

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

What is the building in the middle of that photo that looks like an edge-on view of a stack of corrugated cardboard boxes?

Re: Rock Row (née The Ridge, née Dirigo Plaza) | Westbrook, ME

Hamburger menu in the web design sense of the 3-line menu icon at the top right of the site page, not actual burgers unfortunately. And if Chik-Fil-A is out (please no), I can hope for them to go...

Is that just the subway entrance, or does the Champions Row entrance to the Garden look ready as well?

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

Is there some design-theory reason to make the topmost floor of each podium a different color? Because, to my lay eye, it just looks lame, and in the case of the west building the gray distracts...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

The city wants that Mountfort St. extension (and it does make sense), but it can't be done without the Jackrabbit (VA) property. These developers (same for 100 Fore as for Wex) are making provision...
