Re: MXD Residential Tower | 135 Broadway | Kendall Square

Boston's IDP targets middle-income. Most aff. units range in 'afforadiblity' with percentages of AMI, and this often goes up into 'middle-income'.

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

I think the Seaport has objectively failed from a climate change/sea level rise aspect, and that should not be discounted in all of this.

Re: Tremont Crossing | Roxbury

Agreed. I don't think street engagement will sway anyone to demolish a school, but yeah I think the O'bryant addition should stay because it engages the the street wonderfully (as well as any school...

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

I recommend checking the bridge at night, the lights are already in and they look super nice.

Also, I sort of hated the ISEC I building because it seemed a little disjointed with two extremely...

Re: Ode to Brutalism

I've been recently, and I just feel like the architecture is aesthetically beautiful (in some cases) but more as a an art piece or a sculpture; living there and interacting with it in that way is so...

Re: Roxbury Developments

Never go to the town of Norfolk. All the street signs are read this way on skinny white poles. I delivered pizzas to Norfolk a lot before I had a smartphone or gps in my car, and had many late nights...

Hopefully we can learn from the Seaport and all of its mistakes and don't rinse/repeat with Suffolk Downs.

Re: Scape Student Housing | 1252-1268 Boylston Street | Fenway

Being queer doesn't have to be 'countercultural', and that is not the goal of every queer bar. And if you've been to Machine recently then thats definitely not the vibe theyre going for... Maybe some...

Re: Scape Student Housing | 1252-1268 Boylston Street | Fenway

Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

It legit looks like its unfinished. I go to NU and was saying to a friend how ugly it looked and they thought they hadn't painted it yet. Having to look at this everyday is painful.
