Re: Closing Newbury Street to cars

I don't think it needs to be pedestrian only all the time, but they defintiely should take out the parking spaces and make the side walks wider for most of the street. ....at least between Dalton and...

Re: 40 Trinity Place | 426 Stuart Street | Back Bay

There isn't really any historic urban fabric where this building is. Thankfully it doesn't seem to be crowding the Hancock too much, and the fact that it is slender and glass will help minimize that....

Re: Congress Street Garage Development | West End

These towers are so close together and part of the same project, why weren't they designed to complimenting each other? They should play off each other. The office building will add something...

Re: Future Skyline

Re: Hancock Tower III | 380 Stuart Street | Back Bay

I kinda like it, but I will be surprised if the curves and bulges aren't designed out and we end up with a straight glass box in the end. I don't think this Jetson's building without the stilts would...

People are freaking out over the closing of the block of Spencer Ave in front of the French Club like it's going to cause Armageddon.

Re: Silver Line to Chelsea

Sounds great except that the Chelsea Street bridge takes 30 minutes to go up and down, so the schedule will never be reliable.

Re: Theater District Parcel P-7A | 240 Tremont Street | Downtown

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

The ability to add money to your card at the fare box needs to be eliminated immediately if you want to clear congestion at boarding.

It says the parking is underground and there's 3600 sq ft of retail, presumably on Harrison.

Re: 600 Harrison/600 Harrison Ave/South End/Boston
