Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

+1 for Costco, they seem to at least give a damn about the people who work for them.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

These are not all moves that can be completed by a single agent and also ignores several laws but:

-Expand the Home Depot at Assembly into the (still, how?) empty former Circuit City, and kill the...

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

Not 22 anymore but not too far from it--plenty of people come out of school making that much I'm sure but I didn't know any. More like owe it. I sure as hell don't. I post on a site called...

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

I think it's possible to think this building is a positive for Emmanuel, and the Fenway, and good on its own merits, and also that the architect let up at the 5-yard line instead of punching it in....

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

The no-cornice thing had to have looked better in the elevations than it does in real life; big misstep for me.

Re: Do you still hate the seaport?

Given that the airport is right across the way and the Seaport will never see the benefits of height as long as it remains there (which is fine), it is an abject planning failure that they laid out...

Re: Do you still hate the seaport?

Like FK4 said, there was nothing there before and a lot of the property was state-owned. So as a starting condition they could have planned for more and smaller streets and more and smaller parcels.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

lol it's 2018 and we're being told to be more sympathetic to motorists. As a motorist, no.

I don't know if the leap to Trump is the most apropos, but here is a similarity: using a system which was...

Re: Cambridge Developments

Correct. It took over a year for some reason and is abominable.

Re: Do you still hate the seaport?

I feel something close to this sentiment.

Architecturally, I have to admit it's coming into its own and will over time start to take on the trappings of a real neighborhood. Street walls are...

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

Beton Brut and CCA for consuls, there were always two of them right?

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

This is definitely not big enough, but it would be cool to see something of the sort done with Draw 7 Park at Assembly. Used to be a nice little pitch until the Snowpocalypse of 2015, when it was...

Re: Ink Block (Boston Herald) | 300 Harrison Avenue | South End

Why stop at Siena? I'd like to see these architects try to abstract the facade of the Duomo in Florence. Actually since we love doing multiple facades on large buildings, let them be inspired by the...

Re: Six West Broadway Hotel |South Boston

Hot take: The Standard is only a building people talk about because it straddles the High Line and has some nice interiors. It is not that much of a marvel.

Re: Six West Broadway Hotel |South Boston

I think it's totally fine. Bout time we had some restraint. Could do with maybe one design flourish, but that's something signage and lighting could solve. Not really seeing anything to be mad about....

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I thought we had a terrible winter and spring with mechanical delays, and then late spring/early summer was really awful with crush loads and bunching thrown into the mix of disabled trains. Then it...

Re: Flower Exchange Redevelopment | South End

Totally dated, but also seems appropriate here as a way to block a little bit more road noise from 93.

Re: 5 Middlesex Avenue | Assembly Square | Somerville

This is bordering on illness. This is what you get when you're desperate to evoke "Crossing" but no one higher up would approve your stupid Crossing name. After all, if it isn't a Landing or a...

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

I like the gesture but think the color is all wrong. Odurandina and CCA, you have the right idea.

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

The residential part seems pretty inoffensive to me but the office tower is an atrocity for reasons others and I have enumerated upthread.

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

We are not talking at cross purposes here--this is cheap garbage.

I'm not convinced it's a gutter. Can't see downspouts from either of the angles, which are present in other areas of the...
