Re: Local Politics Thread

I think my problem is that the tax cut is proportionally higher for the wealthy than that poor. It's the idea that I'll justify giving a mansion for the wealthy, but to keep the poor from being...

Re: Local Politics Thread

It's already here. Trump has been trying to ban all media networks that doesn't praise him as a god. Talk about censorship. Also, no one does hush money better than Trump.

Re: Local Politics Thread

Yup but when it comes to the current administration's tax breaks that benefits the wealthy at the expense of taxpayers, it's silence.

Re: Local Politics Thread

Yeah okay Rifleman. We'll take you seriously when you rail against the tax cuts to the wealthy and large corporations that Trump and his administration passed last year, Mr. "No tax breaks for...

Re: South Station Tower

While the spire is asymmetrical, it would definitely stand out. There's nothing in Boston close to the raw architectural expression that the spire would have brought.

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

It will probably appear shorter than MT as it sits lower than MT, assuming that's the benchmark you are using visually. The elevation difference is probably more than the 7 ft difference between the...

This use of zir is obviously used in a mocking way.

Re: Briv

Sorry let me clarify. The original forum had racist bigots. This one, we have general bigotry (homophobic, transphobic, etc)

Re: Briv

Let this forum die. The previous forum, skyscraperguy.com, died because the host went through a difficult period, the ads were rampant, and there were a couple of racist bigots posting on the site.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Here's why it offends some people. Pushing people, especially lower income residents, out of Boston affects them more than just increasing travel time. Depending on where they get pushed out, most...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

If only everywhere is like Japan. We can't even increase gas tax to fund public transit.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Expanding public transit is a great idea until you realize most TOD development still price out the lower and middle income. The fact of the matter is, the whole free market concept doesn't solve...

Re: South Station Tower

If you want to see the 840 version, just go to skyscraperpage and look at the old diagram model for SST. It will give you a good idea how it was supposed to look.

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

They probably need radar coverage over that area because planes are flying low through that corridor to land or take off from that runway and the path is close enough to downtown to restrict the...

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Honestly, you wouldn't have to move Logan Airport to build tall. You would just have to re-align the runways so they don't fly over downtown. Toronto has an airport right next to downtown but the...

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

When the YIMBYs contaminated this forum. It's always the extreme leaning ones (NIMBYs and YIMBYs) that fuck up everything. Honestly, I find Ned Flaherty more tolerable.

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

Is this really designed by Gensler? Because this is literally the opposite of what Gensler usually designs.

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

And that's what I'm saying. Essentially the middle class and lower class are being pushed out of the city. That is the problem. And no, I have no faith that developers will be building more housing...

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