Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

The crane is starting to come down on the residential tower. Who knows when, or if, we'll see so many cranes dotting North Station/West End/Bulfinch Triangle ever again.

Re: Ollie | 217 Albany St | South End

I can see demographic "concerns" being that you're paying $4-5K for a studio in a city where catering to students tend to overrun the concerns of working adults. You tend to think the worst, even if...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Re: Boston Bombing Memorial | Boylston St | Back Bay

We also trivialise it with movies and cheap retrospectives. Is anyone still buying a ‘Boston Strong’ T-shirt still being hawked at Quincy Market or Logan gift shops? Ask someone in Parkland or...

Re: Boston Bombing Memorial | Boylston St | Back Bay

Mixed thoughts on this...but I do look forward to it's addition to Boylston Street. We no longer do equestrian statues or Gothic water fountains, so esoteric it has to be. And it's more than a...

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