Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

Agreed on the narrow point (will the future phases add retail along the SS streetwall?), but the ground floor of the tower will literally double the capacity of the cheapest, most widely accessible...

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

The absolute level of how the city was doing in 1990 is debatable, but it's hard to argue the city isn't a much more vibrant, diverse and interesting place now.

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

So keep the garage forever then. Seems like a suboptimal outcome versus building housing and removing some of the parking to me.
