Re: The New Retail Thread

An observation about Newbury St now that the weather is nice enough again for me to lift my head: thereís a major, probably unprecedented in recent memory, vacancy contagion going on. If I were a...

Re: Forum Move: Technical Issues and Feature Discussion

Someone suggested this feature on our other thread. No idea how this technically gets done, but I think it's an awesome idea: a pull-down from the top (or side, etc) accessible on every page of a...

Re: How does Boston's urbanism compare?

Adding to the mix, Iím fascinated by Canadian cities. Not sure why. Iíve been to Montreal, Toronto, Halifax and Saint John. They share a unique character that you donít get south of the border, but I...

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Maybe it's possible there's not a major sqft difference, just a different more open floor plan? The jump to 2BR is significant.

Re: Green Line Type 10 Procurement

The 8's all need new lightbulbs - they're so dim compared to the returning 7's. It actually makes the 7's more appealing.

Re: Parcel 12 | Massachusetts Avenue at Boylston Street | Back Bay

I think you're missing the point a bit. What's being proposed is a surface street down the center of the Pike decking to replace both Herald and Marginal, with new developments on either side of the...

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

I dispute whether any major infrastructure improvement for ~8-12 traffic-generating events per year can be considered "reasonable" ... especially when it benefits a privately-owned venue.

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Can you guys please not quote Tosh/Odu, or respond to him, like, ever? It negates the utility of Ignore, which I am otherwise really enjoying.

Or he can just go the f away, that's fine too.

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

I guess it's a bait and switch, but from the beginning how could anyone have been naive enough to think this was going to be anything other than a corporate lobby?

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

Are Atlantic/Purchase/Surface roads state roads? I assume yes, but correct me if I'm wrong. Assuming yes, the state can set up tolls on the surface roads that basically catches all drivers coming off...

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

Tremendous effort here!

Chelsea GL branch looping at airport is super interesting. I wonder how many people would stay on it to route through to downtown or Cambridge via GJ - that'd be a long...

Re: Legacy Place - Dedham

Thanks for the context - makes sense - but like everything else along the route 1 corridor, just a little bit of prior planning could have made a big difference in how this whole area came together.

Re: Legacy Place - Dedham

Legacy Place is a commercial success (or so it would seem) but such a missed opportunity. Why are the three or four hotels in the immediate area set so far away? Why is there is there no integration...

Re: Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

Welcome back, Beeline!

This building is all sorts of weird, isn't it. And a lot more beige than the renders suggested ... although thatís only the starting point of my discontent.
