Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Name is dumb, project is still great, I wish they’d pull their construction permit so Boston doesn’t miss its units approved goal for the 2nd quarter in a row

Re: North Station, Charles River Draw, & Tower A

Update from someone who knows: it does *not* foul the current plans for track 11-12. Its removal may be required for future platform lengthening.

Re: North Station, Charles River Draw, & Tower A

Unless I'm misreading Obda, he's proposing adding supports for air rights over the North Station tracks (including the new 11/12). Seems reasonable to me, although the Spaulding parking lots will get...

Re: Parcel K | Northern Avenue | Seaport

Great pics, BeeLine!

Agreed. Lots of boring buildings that provide housing/retail/hotel next to transit are the best feature of this cycle.

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

Anyway. Hopefully the news on SST is meaningful, but we don't know until Thursday

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

The post-2006 North Station concourse is a rare example of transit infrastructure getting better. All the previous waiting rooms look much smaller even with the current retail.

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

No real opinion on the art, but the Seaport Blvd rebuild did the best it could without shrinking the road. Hopefully something similar happens to Congress, which is worse both in width and in...

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

There are several surface lots in the Triangle that will hopefully be redeveloped. Going through a full BPDA approval process for some of the smaller lots probably isn't feasible though.

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

@Pheldy34 great photo. 399 Congress and M1/M2 rising together makes it look like the entire corridor is under construction

Re: Julie Hall | Brookline Ave | Emanuel College | Fenway

Re: Julie Hall | Brookline Ave | Emanuel College | Fenway

This is a really important point. The vast majority of buildings have positive utility because they allow more people to live/work/play/take classes in Boston. With that in mind, why do we deny/cut...

Re: Boston - Most Embarrassing Blight That Tourists See

Another nomination for the Post Office. If it was owned by anyone other than the federal government a PDA with millions of SF of office space would be filed by now.

Re: Do you still hate the seaport?

Hate the 1990s hotel complex, Congress St, Summer St and Seaport Boulevard. Like the harborwalk and recent buildings. Excited for the future of the remaining surface parking lots.

Re: Omni Hotel @ BCEC | Summer St | Seaport

Massport says a Parcel D-3 (and Parcel H) RFP will be out this year, so I wonder how they'll deal with staging once construction begins there

Re: Parcel JK | NorthPoint | Cambridge

Everyone scolding people that this is about economics: do you believe divco west would propose taller or shorter *residential* buildings without Cambridge Planning Board oversight?
