Re: Charlestown

^by saying it is "contextual," I was being snide about it fitting in with the '60s era public housing across the street.

Re: Charlestown

Well, at least it's contextual. My fear is that as the various HOPE programs revitalize the actual public housing, this shitbox will be left sticking out like a sore thumb.

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

^Agreed, and blocking the Sheraton makes the Christian Science tower look better. Very nice collection of eras in that shot, with the weakest of the four big towers being Menino's Hat.

Re: Millennium Tower (Filene's) | 426 Washington Street | Downtown

Huh. That guy who bought 12 condos in Millennium lives in my condo development in Concord. Always wondered what he did for work.

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

Nice streetwall shaping up. And I'm glad to see they left room to lay the tracks for the future trolley line that will run from the cruise terminal, across the channel and then North to Charlestown....

Re: Our Lady of Good Voyage | Seaport Sq Parcel H | 55 - 57 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Is there a plan to replace any of the windows with stained glass? I think this building works well, but a stained glass panel, specifically in the circular window over the front door, would really...

Re: Harvard - Allston Campus

I believe that particular ABP was one of the first in the chain, and had been there since 1984. I am sure I went there in 1985, and at that time it had really good, freshly made breads, and was a...

Re: Biking the Boston 'Burbs (Trails, MDC, & Towns beyond Hubway area)

F-Line, I'm consistently astounded by your knowledge on these rail and trail issues. I'd be grateful for your thoughts on how to close a gap in the system. Currently, the Reformatory Branch ends in...

Re: The Icon (née Western Ave Residence) | 530 Western Ave | Brighton

I read it the same way. It's not terrible branding; rather, poor sign design. Plus, "The Icon" for a 4 story apartment building in Brighton? Seems a tad fancy.

But I do like the architecture.

Re: Whiskey Priest/Atlantic Beer Garden Redevelopment | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Re: Novartis Campus | 181-211 Mass Ave, 22 Windsor Street | Cambridge - Kendall Sq

I think all parts here, taken as a whole, are very interesting and handsome. I don't like that blank glass wall along Mass. Ave--hopefully they'll pull down the coverings and the interior will engage...

Re: Yotel Hotel | SPSQ parcel J | 65 Seaport Blvd | South Boston Waterfront

Re: ACKS | Alexander Center Kendall Sq. | 50 Binney | E Cambridge

I like the color, but the dimensions of the "brick" panels are so clearly not masonry (too slim, too tall) that it screams fakery. Like the vinyl wood grain stickers put on the sides of 80's era...

Re: Goodwin Procter HQ @ Fan Pier | 90 - 110 Northern Ave - Parcel I | Seaport

I think this building turned out reasonably well, and it complements the ICA. But holy hell does the emergency generator (or whatever mechanical that is) on top of the ICA drive me crazy--could...
