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

Its streetscape is A+. That plaza is usually bustling and interesting with stuff going on. A nice urban life upgrade over whatever was there before.

Re: Annexation

Brookline will never even consider it.

Re: One Kenmore Square | 560 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

Evidently your'e not alone. I agree with you regarding the misuse of the word "imminent".

But they will be here around 2030 in the inner cities.

I know change is uncomfortable, but it is...

Re: One Kenmore Square | 560 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

I fully agree with you on all of that. But you mention delivery/business vehicles. The suburbanites and rural residents will never give up their driving freedom. Never. And rightfully so.

Re: One Kenmore Square | 560 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

Sure - - on the ESCALATOR.

I haven't seen someone mentally forget how to walk up a staircase (sadly, unless if they have Alzheimers - which I have personally witnessed.).

Re: One Kenmore Square | 560 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

How so? I get your point if the concern is for pedestrians/bicyclists against a 1.5 ton combustible engine mid-size car or more. But if it is a light electric pod, the danger would be far less and...

Re: One Kenmore Square | 560 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

I agree.

But once again: Urban. Centers. Only.

Escalators in busy department stores didn't eradicate the human ability to climb staircases.

Driverless cars/pods make sense in urban centers...

Re: One Kenmore Square | 560 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

Re: One Kenmore Square | 560 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

I clearly wrote self-driving cars will not be everywhere. And that it's ok. But it as close to an inevitability in the future (but not "tomorrow"). And in urban centers, not...

Re: One Kenmore Square | 560 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

I'm in too. Kenmore Square should be a destination again. And if we can't have nitty, gritty Newbury Comics/Rat/Cafetaria stuff, at least have taller buildings with more activity and a design that...
