Re: 10 Farnsworth Street | Fort Point

If someone is looking for privacy, then they should probably move to the burbs and not live in the city.

Re: Ink Block (Boston Herald) | 300 Harrison Avenue | South End

My husband works for the Pine Street Inn -- that comment is just plain ignorant given what they do for the community.

Re: The Boulevard (née The Times/Littlest Bar) | 110 Broad St | Downtown

Just walked by this. The facade is definitely reading more orange than bronze. Clashes with the off-white/beige of the first floor.

Re: Waltham Developments

Re: Waltham Developments

Boston Properties found an anchor for 20 City Point. Broke ground a few weeks ago. Essentially Phase II of that parcel -- based on what I have seen, will aesthetically match the building next door.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

I'm shocked by how many people think that the seaport is this isolated community that you can only access via car. Legit - take a walk over the channel. You'd be surprised how close it is to...

Re: Pierce Boston (née The Point )| Boylston St/Brookline Av | Fenway

That render was also before they decided to divide the roof into sections and sell each section separately.

Re: 45 Worthington Street | 35 stories, 385 units | Mission Hill

Did they replace this proposal with the development at 95 St. Alphonsus (http://www.bostonplans.org/projects/development-projects/95-st-alphonsus-street)?

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

This is specific to the City of Boston.

Not sure if Wynn faces a similar situation in Everett.

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

To prove otherwise, I'll find the time to get over there tomorrow or Thursday's to snap some pics. The way these developments engage the waterfront is far from a ROW.

Re: Winter Garden | 100 Federal St. | Financial District

I believe they are also expanding their basement/sub-basement levels -- which is why we are seeing all of the foundation work.
