Re: Somerville Developments

It's kinda like a park now.

Re: 10/11/2018: HUGE Development Regarding Boston Area College Dormitories

It's not 36,000 but I got out of school within the past few years, and there are definitely luxury students to put in these projects. Pick a new residential building around town from the last ten...

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

You could ask if that's now how he sounded every day.

Re: Bartlett Yards | 2565 Washington Street | Roxbury

This building sucks and we need a thousand more.

Re: Allston-Brighton Developments

I think it'll probably look good in real life but these curvy undulating facades always give me the impression of being made of cut-out paper.

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

That's gonna be a no way from me on both counts.

Replacing the on-WB with an off-WB at Mass Ave doesn't seem like it corresponds to any demand, but I guess you're saying this would be the only...

Re: BU Development Thread

I like it, visually and because it will reduce heat gain in a way that glass-only couldn't. If they orient and space these right they could save a bundle on operable shading inside.

Re: BU Development Thread

I love this thing, build it as rendered. It's a bit big and I think the rooftop/garden scheme could be more ambitious but this is a hell yes from me.

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

It's a bastardization but yeah I see them in about equal measure.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

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

Also, really, whom does this serve? Is liking to look at lit up buildings at night enough to justify them? LEDs are very efficient but they're not free, and it hasn't stopped being a good idea to...

Re: Boston Congestion Zone Charging

Seems fine, as long as the proceeds were to fund transit. Whether it's always true or not (it's not), the people who contribute the most to congestion say "I wouldn't drive if the T didn't suck." We...

Re: Development Map and Chart

Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

I think, upon seeing the rendering, that this is somewhat salvageable. If the glass is reflective enough it'll appear pretty light during the day, reducing the contrast between it and the precast....

Re: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

I don't really like any of these but I would echo what others have said and choose one that makes people somewhat uncomfortable.

One of the most relevant dimensions of the King legacy is the way...

Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

We are seeing the eschaton of misaligned windows, and it is a bloody one.

Also can someone please confirm that there is a blue film on the glass of the windows in the images where glass is...

Re: MXD | 145 Broadway/250 Binney | Kendall Square

I think the interlocking move takes this from a building that wouldn't even register to one that makes some people say, "oh, huh."

Re: Hood Business Park | 480-570 Rutherford Avenue | Charlestown

"Supertest" is an awful street name. It's possible to go too far with the branding and referential nomenclature. But yeah, the 35 tower is much better rendered in the NPC.

Re: Kenmore Square North

I liked Beton Brut's suggestion, but to my mind the optimal solution would be a big red triangle on a white field, with no text at all. Like modern art and everything after, it allows the observer to...

Re: Official City Hall Plaza Proposals

I'm not mad at this. It's not groundbreaking landscape architecture, true. But I believe the city needs a central civic space like this one for (even rare) occasions of mass gathering. I loved it...

Re: Mixed Use Complex | 345 Harrison Ave | South End
