Re: The New Retail Thread

I hate to raise the alarm, but the bar situation in central Boston is in such crises that the city is now at least at the Defcon 2 level. I blame the cost of liquor licenses in Boston; the whole city...

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

Taking away at what significantly makes the streetwall interesting, overall I'm happy to see the rehab of the buildings in this project, but the loss of the ornamentation is such a shame.

Re: The New Retail Thread

Over the years, I've observed that a group of people act differently depending on the atmosphere they are put into. By way of example, I'd go to happy hour with the work crew to an upscale place...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Re: North End Piazza on The Greenway | 198 Hanover Street | North End

I agree and also think it's a missed opportunity mostly because a larger building could have somewhat visually hemmed in the greenway in this neck of the woods. In this part of Boston the greenway...

Re: One Bromfield | 1 Bromfield Street | Downtown

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)
