Re: MXD Residential Tower | 135 Broadway | Kendall Square

The parking garage is extremely banal for 2020. I would say core Boston demands some more decoration/street activation. Also the tower is pretty banal. Not the worst, but combined with the parking...

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

So when is that like button coming? It should be very easy to upgrade a forum as small as this. If Edward is as wealthy as he portrays he can easily pay to upgrade the forum software and extensions...

Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

That's honestly kind of a nice Scandinavian vibe in the first pic with Twenty20 and this. Definitely some visually intriguing architecture, if not beautiful.

Well coliving is a good market solution and I would like living in one but theyíre still not affordable for the poor. Allston with roommates is still going to be the cheapest bet. Honestly as long as...

Re: How would you describe/characterize the current build cycle??

They really need mandatory zoning minimums for the urban core and a big public housing effort especially at transit hubs. But the powers that be are happy with Boston as it is so this is obviously...

Re: Jamaica Plain Infill

It does seem big, but I love all the historical new builds of New England, most places donít get nearly as much. More variety to look at than in DC new construction for example. This one is...

Not with idiots and/or fascists, no.

Didn't you literally just say in the same post you are pro-free speech? So yes, I reserve my right to call trash trash.
