Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

True; South Station deserves near billing with DC and 30th St for waiting.

Save for the super frigid days w/ those nearly painful cold blasts.

LA; do you like being seated 500' from your stairway? I'm not digging the non-existent/crap restaurants. Nothing shockingly bad. But, by comparison Amtrak stations back East offer better food.

Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

Love it. The residential tower is basically as nice as the lovely Big Fatty coming in 2 years.

If each could have gone 50~60 feet higher, it would have achieved a perfect 10/10 outcome,

thanks...

Nice. Well, good urbanism for Beacon Hill maybe says go 5 or 6 floors. But, its easy to see why they went very strict (here) w/ matching the opposite corner abutters' roof height. The cladding looks...

Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

1. height
2. all the cool stuff at the ground level.
3. adding revenue density at the bus station.

Bravo to the effort! Got to make it pay, BB.
