Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

*Yawn* skyline rant.

The tower design wasn't anything great but the number of additional people it would have added to the downtown core which is fucking dead after 9PM most days would have been...

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

The lit up crane is the best part of this project. I really want a tower with ground to top strip lighting now kind of like that one in Houston.

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

It was a stupid requirement. It's not tall enough to deserve one. It's barely taller than the other buildings around it. Not to mention it would eat up tons of internal space for the private elevator...

Definitely still some sports available to build on Tyler and Hudson... both north and south of Kneeland.

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

In hindsight the Trinity proposal is the one that would have served the city best. A lot of affordable units and the design is no worse than what we are likely to get here. The added economic benefit...

Re: Mixed Use Complex | 345 Harrison Ave | South End

I really just do not understand who the target market is for these type of apartments... You can buy a heck of a house or unit for over a million. Hell even if you're transient why not just buy and...

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

That's because I don't think it's a thing. They may be permitted for it by the FAA though. It could also just be the height of the crane boom during construction that is accounted for.

Come on over to The Tam and we can toss one or several back while cheering the mid-rise infill on.

Re: The archBoston Meetup Thread

OK. We really failed at organizing one of these in 2017. It'd be nice if it ever warmed up a bit then I'd say we should do a weekday after work meetup somewhere with outdoor seating.

I don't love it, but whatever. I think the previous proposal everyone hated looked a hell of a lot better and at least attempted (perhaps poorly?) to be more than a curtain wall glass stump. The...

Re: 1000 Boylston Street | MassDot Pike Parcel 15

Weird question... that's like asking "Well we built a boat once and it sank, is it even possible to build a boat?"

Building over the pike is inevitable. It's a matter of when not if. The real...

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

+1 as well. I walked by it recently and it's good. It's a frankenstein's monster but it looks pretty good.
