Re: Bulfinch Crossing | Congress Street Garage | West End

Probably the same reason why we as humans tend to find taller and slender people more attractive than shorter and wider people. Maybe it's an biological thing.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

There's a problem with putting power into the people's hands. There's too many different voices.

Re: Development Map and Chart

I want to make a policy push to increase the number of affordable housing in the city. If they can't do it through a no frills type of method, which to me doesn't sound impossible since several...

Re: Development Map and Chart

I don't think you understand at all. I'm aware there's no additional cost to the DEVELOPER by just putting a feature like Central Air (and applicable to other amenities) but it gives the developer...

Re: Development Map and Chart

And that's the problem. There's nothing in the city that is preventing developers from building apartments without central air or some of these other amenities. The reason they do is because they can...

Re: Development Map and Chart

Here's a good counter argument. The number of people who make 50-99k are growing at a faster rate than those making above that; however housing stock that serves those making 99k+ are increasing...

Re: Development Map and Chart

I can separate the difference between a luxury apartment and one that's not a luxury apartment.

A luxury apartment is an apartment that comes with amenities such as a gym, a pool, central air, a...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

I'm actually doing this route this December (SYD to HNL to JFK to BOS). Leaving Sydney in the afternoon on 12/10, arriving in Honolulu on the morning of 12/10.

Re: One Project, Only One

One tower taller than the JHT so height fetishists can shut up.

Re: Boston and surrounding areas housing crisis

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

I don't know. Do you possess the ability to understand that statements need to be confirmed by a credible source in order for it to become a fact? This isn't a your view vs my view vs other people's...

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

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

If it's detachable then no. Chances are, the antenna is detachable. This is why the antenna on the ESB is not counted toward it's final height, despite the fact that they look more ornamental than...

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

I'm going to guess you are the type of person who would ask an artist to do a job for "exposure" instead of paying for the artist's work. You're a cheapskate, plain and simple.

It's also not a...

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

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

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

It's actually pretty unreasonable. If every public good was charged based on whether one uses it or not, then there will be no cities, no infrastructure, no parks. It's the fact that suburban people...

Re: Comm Ave Bridge Replacement.

So my only gripe with this whole project is why the fuck is the green line running single car trains during rush hour at Babcock street? Once again, the MBTA has no idea what they are doing.
