Re: MassDOT Pike Parcels 12 - 15 | Boylston St. and Mass. Ave | Back Bay

We have GOT to get these parcels into separate threads. There are, what? Three separate projects?

Re: North Washington St Bridge

I sure hope this “architectural trellis” is not pre-approved, too. Looks like a cheap knockoff of the Calatrava WTC station. Which is kinda cool looking, but also kind of pointless...

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

^^^
Jumbo, the real message (to wantonly inject politics into this) is that no amount of security will ever protect everyone. In my opinion, it’s not worth all of the losses of freedom incurred......

Re: Beth Israel Patient Building | West Campus | Longwood

Re: Beth Israel Patient Building | West Campus | Longwood

It’s a great project because without even looking at the detailed plans it means they’re finally expanding their ED which is much needed. It also will likely release some pressure on some of the...

Re: Kenmore Square North

Re: Kenmore Square North

Dude, BU has ruined Bay State Rd. I’m well aware of private ownership because my friend’s late great aunt was one of the last owners there. Amazing place. BUT - just go to Bay State Rd and walk...

Re: UMass Boston Residence Hall 1 | Columbia Point | Dorchester

Well, we can debate the finer points, if you want, but I think it’s obvious what I meant:
1) “clean up” has unintended consequences like gentrification and
2) making it so that the yuppie guy...

Re: UMass Boston Residence Hall 1 | Columbia Point | Dorchester

Schmessy- to be clear, I want more dorms for UMB. No question about that.

And - you can point to many neighborhoods that are “cleaned up” - doesn’t mean it’s better for everybody, it just means...

Re: Kenmore Square North

As I said above, because of BU’s being allowed to buy up everything on bay state road, there ARE no neighbors to protest this. I not only think something should be done immediately to put a stop to...

Re: Biking in Boston

Are there any usage maps? Does anyone know if they track each bike trip? I would be very curious to see what the most heavily utilized stations are, and what the transit patterns are.

Re: Biking the Boston 'Burbs (Trails, MDC, & Towns beyond Hubway area)

Fantastic. I’ve never been, heard of it... it’s hard to justify going way out for anything less than 10 miles but 4.9+6.8 makes it worthwhile. Thanks!

Re: Worcester Improvements

What’s been going on in Worcester? I was reminded to come to this thread since people are bashing it on the Hub thread... and weirdly this thread’s been quiet for many months.

Any update on this? Why is briv reluctant to simply share admin? Sorry, but it this simple hubris, or what? It's a popular site and it's gonna die on the vine if nothing changes.
