Re: Official City Hall Plaza Proposals

Or it's just that City Hall Plaza sucks and nobody wants to go there!

Re: Seaport Parcels M1-M2 | Seaport Sq. | Seaport

Crazy how things have changed! That birds eye view render doesn't show the Whiskey Priest building. They'll be some views to the water blocked from that front building it looks like.

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

Just a thought. Could you ever redo the spire on the Pru? Make it more substantial and add presence to it's height?

Great pics btw!

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Ok, but it was classy and could hold it's own. And yes, they won it with the money. My point tho was that it's seems like a strategy to show something much better up front, tear everyone's...

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Seems like a smart tactic: Win with an amazing design. Bring everyone's expectations to the lowest possible. Then build 'em back up with a somewhere in the middle design. Everyone's content! Wishful...

Re: MassDOT Pike Parcels 12 - 15 | Boylston St. and Mass. Ave | Back Bay

I think you're right on Millennium Tower. Should 1 Dalton be an exception since it's outside of some of the review process?

And yes, Love Joy Wharf def got better. The recent news on Winthrop Sq...

Re: MassDOT Pike Parcels 12 - 15 | Boylston St. and Mass. Ave | Back Bay

Is it possible for a development to get better than proposed in this city? Is that even a thing? Are there any cities where that happens? Or is it just normal that developments are cut back and get...

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

The spire on the old render was kinda weak. The multiple facades on this are hideous. That middle one reminds me of the pregnant building. The only things I like about it is the reddish color...

Re: 110 Arlington Street - Boutique Hotel | Bay Village

I like it a lot! Color selection was key. Sits more in the background but adds some class.

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

What a f'ing let down. I guess this is what you get in a city where so many are barking up the tree complaining about shadows, height, wind or whatever it may be. We'll never know what it's like to...

Re: Millennium Tower (Filene's) | 426 Washington Street | Downtown

Thanks for the props guys.

Why close a thread when the building is still relevant? I guess it's not so "new development" anymore, but still kinda.

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

There's a lot of beauty to see up in the sky but gets ruined by wires, that's all.

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

I feel like we live in a time where we should be removing wires and not adding more. It's more prevalent in the suburbs. There are so many places that would be so much more pleasant without wires...

Re: Winthrop Square Garage Being Demolished

I walk by this everyday. They put a fence up around the site... at least on the Winthrop Sq side. There's been a lot more activity, heavy jack hammering and lot's of dust rising above.

Re: Wynn Everett Casino | Everett

Seriously, this looks like it was designed in the 90s or early 2000s... right? I'm not an architect but looking at this, it's like Wynn just pulled a design from a decade ago.

Re: Wynn Everett Casino | Everett

Parts of it remind me of a giant Cheesecake Factory.
