Re: Crossroads at Kenmore | 560 Commonwealth Ave | Kenmore Square

Traffic cameras are also a privacy issue though so it isn't that simple and better enforcement by police officers would help as well as a high fine. NYC was able to get people to stop blocking the...

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

Re: Crossroads at Kenmore | 560 Commonwealth Ave | Kenmore Square

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 665 Commonwealth Avenue | BU Central

They seem to have adjusted the facade treatment of the podium so that it appears less monolithic which is really helping the tower and the podium relationship to work better than before. At least for...

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

528' is the highest occupied floor and is what the Globe and other news agencies will reference until/unless HYM releases a notice giving the architectural height of the building including the crown.

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

If the MBTA commuter rail upped frequencies on the Worcester Line to every 30 minutes all day would that be considered an adequate replacement for Storrow Drive? The added capacity to the Worcester...

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

Boston is a much larger city than Nashville though unless you look at city proper population which doesn't give a good picture. Nashville's city proper is 504 square miles in land area. Boston's is...

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

I don't think this has been designed yet beyond choosing the alignment and making a basic massing model to demonstrate how things will be positioned.

Re: 150 Kneeland Street | Chinatown

That is the lot line so they either pay for fire rated glass or it gets a blank wall. I would guess they aren't going ultra luxury here so blank wall it is. At least they are doing something with it...

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars
