Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Geismar was on a 99 PI episode earlier this year too. Highly recommend it.

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

I really like the brick pattern here. ¯|_(ツ)_/¯

Just a shame the first floor program doesn't open up to the Greenway.

Re: Downtown Crossing

I too wish there were restaurants on the "main drag" of Washington in DTX proper (say between Winter St and Bromfield), but the problem is that those buildings always had retail in them in that area...

Re: Open Thread

Overpressurized main. Main line regulator likely failed, overpressurized the system and then the old pipes & valves at various homes couldn't handle the pressure. Just an epic catastrophe.

Re: Motor Mart Tower | 201 Stuart Str. | Park Sq | Boston

This. It mimics the curves in the surrounding context nicely as well as the bend in the Motor Mart Garage itself.

Well, yes, it does. We can't make that definitive "toast" assessment on our own, only offer conjecture. Buildings/structures are surprisingly resilient and are designed with redundancies to account...

Re: San Francisco high-rise sinking, tilting

Right, the building really should be vacated and imploded in a controlled manner before it comes down on its own, though I don't know how feasible it is with TransBay next door. Money is money, it...

Re: San Francisco high-rise sinking, tilting

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

And if you add up all the money we've saved in GAM, TAM & salaries from not buying quality players & DPs for a zillion years, then $100 mil isn't so hard to swallow.

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

It was reportedly about the logistics of moving the city services off of the site to enable it to be sold. Hearing wasn't actually about selling the parcel itself.


Uh, this is Marty Walsh we're...

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

Re: Marriott Moxy Hotel | 240 Tremont Street (Parcel P-7A) | Theater District

The back is entirely opaque Alucobond. Actually should look pretty good. Should have a similar aesthetic to the MassArt TreeHouse, just duller:
