Re: The next BIG skyscraper to BLOCK

My BackYard is also a park if you think about it, and that's why I say to all towers: Not In!

We can agree to keep some places sacred, like the Common and Public...

Re: Assembly Row (Assembly Sq Redevelopment) | Assembly Square | Somerville

Yeah I'm not even sure what to say to that. If I don't like some piece of culture, I just...don't consume it. I'm not much of a bowler so I don't go bowling. But I'm not gonna begrudge other people...

Re: Assembly Row (Assembly Sq Redevelopment) | Assembly Square | Somerville

Beton, I'm usually with you but come on. It's a place for games. What's more superficial than games? If you enjoy a game ironically, you're still enjoying it. What are the appropriately authentic...

Re: The next BIG skyscraper to BLOCK

This is such a dumb thread. Obviously we need to block all of them

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

HOUSING. God, so much housing. Also, the intersection of the Pike air rights parcels and SE Expy tunnel could be a new center of town. To get really crazy we could also bury the Red Line yard and...

Cybah, thanks for the link. I see what the difference is now.

Re: General Boston Discussion.

Yes Moto, I mean public housing, and you may call it the projects if you want. I do.

I believe it's possible to want the general public to fend for itself but I also observe that this is not, and...

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Can always count on Beton Brut for a measured response.

This is as good as we've seen in Boston, but I'd stop short of "iconic". Which is fine; I like that this is a younger relative of MT...

Re: General Boston Discussion.

I nominate this thread to be the dumping ground for all manner of discussion about rents, regulation, and residential in general. Let's keep it respectful but here we are probably allowed to be...

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

I'm happy to keep talking about this, but I also respect that not everyone wants to and that it is co-opting a thread about a specific project for a larger discussion. Can a mod recommend the right...

Re: Silver Line to Chelsea

I'm really losing track of how this would be different from any old bus. I'm not a huge fan of the SL in general because I think it represents abdication of responsibility on behalf of leaders who...

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

I don't see what the alternative is to massive public investment if we all agree to these conditions. If it is true that people need a type of housing which the economic conditions preclude...

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

One thing I just saw in WMATA's materials for their new 8000 series cars that would have been a good idea here are aisle ceiling-mounted handrails. I've spent innumerable trips in that dead zone...

Re: 121 Seaport Boulevard | Parcel L2 | Seaport Square

Brick pavers would have tied this to the rest of town a smidge better.

Re: The New Retail Thread

This shouldn't carry any weight but I recently asked a couple of friends who work there about this rumor and one said they hadn't heard anything about it, while the other said they thought brick and...

Re: New Residence Hall at New England Conservatory

The pavers are easily replaceable at least. Hopefully they got a couple of extra pallets of each color. I also think the car share is supposed to go down as a result of this project.

Re: Parcel I | Cambridge Crossing | East Cambridge

I don't know if that's exactly true. If they proposed 100', the scoff would just be louder; I don't read these as calls to make it taller by any particular factor, but instead to rightsize it. This...

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

Cole, this isn't a fight you're going to win here. Like bigpicture7 said, there are people who agree with you but this might not be the venue.

Re: 121 Seaport Boulevard | Parcel L2 | Seaport Square

Yeah I gotta say that's not a great example shot. Once tree cover grows in I don't see any physical limitations to achieving some of that street life. If anything it's regulations around foodservice...

Re: Pierce Boston (née The Point )| Boylston St/Brookline Av | Fenway

Gotta throw some vines on that trellis. Ivy would be a nice touch there.

Lest it seem like we're being arbitrary in choosing what projects we like and don't like, let me point to some things from the render that make me think this is bad:

Generally, it represents an...

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

I didn't mean to take that tone; I realized later that I intended to end with a question mark, not put words in your mouth. That being said, I think the red/orange will work well here.

Re: 14 West Broadway | South Boston

We will never be free of Alucobond.

I think another color than black would better suit the spandrel panels on the main facade. The dark brick color would have looked nicer with navy or even a...
