Re: Children's Hospital Building | Longwood

Re: Green Line Type 10 Procurement

Oh geez, don't bring COMMON SENSE into the discussion!!!!

It is pathetic that this simple standard operating procedure in almost every other city is somehow a foreign concept with the T.

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

Took the words right out of my mouth, Justin.

I don't understand why the two concepts would be mutually exclusive.

A beautiful piece of urban architecture need not be out of context to its...

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

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

I agree with you and most everyone else here about that, Henry. The only thing (nitpicking) that isn't great about this project is the commuter/T tunnel looks Third World-ish (and even THAT is a net...

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

+1, Charlie.

Messy and jumbled is PERFECT on Causeway Street.

You know what building on that street ISN'T "messy and jumbled"? The effing O'Neil Building.

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

I'm sorry, but that is patently false.

I saw a poll on CNN or MSNBC last night that showed NY resident support numbers for Amazon's locating there at:

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

New York saying no to Amazon, by a long shot.

It's not even a real question.

Amazon had already picked NY. The Olympics never chose Boston. Boston was still in a competition with 4 or 5 other...

Re: General Electric HQ (Phase 1 - Necco Buildings Reno) | 244-284 A Street | Fort Po

I wasn't intimating it was a good or bad thing. Was just making a joke that, evidently, was crossing other people's minds given the timing of the two corporate announcements on the same day.

Per capita? How important is THAT?
