Re: 75 Morrissey Boulevard | Dorchester

Is it me or does this low-effort render look like it's meant to be DOA?

Re: Landmark Center Expansion | Fenway

If construction is happening and BeeLine doesn't take its picture, does anything get built?

Re: Legacy Place - Dedham

Thanks for the context - makes sense - but like everything else along the route 1 corridor, just a little bit of prior planning could have made a big difference in how this whole area came together.

Re: Legacy Place - Dedham

Legacy Place is a commercial success (or so it would seem) but such a missed opportunity. Why are the three or four hotels in the immediate area set so far away? Why is there is there no integration...

Re: Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

Welcome back, Beeline!

This building is all sorts of weird, isn't it. And a lot more beige than the renders suggested ... although thatís only the starting point of my discontent.

Re: Newton Developments

What is the history behind that Star Market? It seems terribly odd that it's built on expensive decking over the Pike, while its parking lot, which probably has a similar sized footprint, is on terra...

Re: Harvard - Allston Campus

^ Iím not going to write a lengthy post right now but the Harvard bus shuttle, for many reasons, doesnít qualify to me as real transit.

Re: Harvard - Allston Campus

This seems big to me. At some point, wonít Harvard be thinking about a transit connector to Barryís? How else will this area really ever thrive?

Wayfair seems to have won out vs. competitors like Overstock. But, I don't know what kind of lasting competitive advantage they will have over Amazon.

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

I agree SL1 is untenable. It should be a Logan Express surface route. Curb space at South Station is a problem that can be solved. Run the line in a bus lane down Summer with a couple stops along the...

Re: Bayside Expo Center Redevelopment | Columbia Point | Dorchester

Are there examples of real, successful TOD that link to subways via shuttle bus? Genuinely curious. It seems a rather tenuous prospect to me.

Re: McMansion Hell

Step 1: bid the $3.5M asking price, less the cost of 6 tons of TNT. Step 2: Sell newly-vacant land to Beton Brut. Step 3: Profit??!

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

Curious what people here think was the louder, more consequential "No" - Boston to the Olympics bid, or NYC to Amazon?

^ He's referring to NYC. Plans still on for Virginia and Nashville (I didn't actually know Nashville was ever part of HQ2...?) And no plans to reopen an HQ2 search.

Re: Walpole Center Developments

Small tangent... what do people call the Route 1 corridor towns, as a region? Sometimes it's included as South Shore, but I think that's really pushing it. It's also clearly not Metrowest. I'm pretty...
