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

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I can be as much as an pro-urban, anti-big box snob as anyone but I do have an honest soft spot for Costco. Plus they treat their employees well, which is awesome.

Re: The Boulevard (née The Times/Littlest Bar) | 110 Broad St | Downtown

Re: General Infrastructure

That almost begins to make up for razing the Franklin/Hawley corner and replacing it with a car port.

Re: The Boulevard (née The Times/Littlest Bar) | 110 Broad St | Downtown

There is either some historical precedent for that style of shutter (though I am not familiar with it) or they are trying to tie in to the new building by using modern, "minimalist" style shutters,...

Re: Kenmore Square North

This building would be a major upgrade to the Seaport and a major downgrade here.

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

^^ Because there is a large group of people who honestly believe that "allow[ing] more people to live/work/play/take classes in Boston" negatively impacts their quality of life.

I don't agree...

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

Progress!

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

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

The problem is that we have such a high bar for what counts as "Historic" around here that 'an 1890 restaurant that some local politicos hung out in' isn't going to pass muster.

Re: Longfellow Bridge update

True, but they were practical about literally nothing else on this project, so it sort of sticks out.

Fill in the parking lot but the original 1890 building should be saved.

Unfortunately, no. It's a good idea, but that is all part of the back end, higher level stuff I don't have access to. Sorry.
