THANK YOU. Everyone is so eager to expend all this effort to move the site yet seem unwilling to answer the simple question: has anyone tried emailing the guy??

Re: Logan Flight Additions

I could see China Airlines/EVA Air making a run at BOS-Taipei or China Southern trying BOS-Guangzhou but that's about it for East Asia.

Has anyone tried reaching out to Briv through his personal email address? I know some of the mods on here have it.

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

^ We don't need out of town firms, we just need developers to give someone besides Elkus Manfredi a damn chance. Boston has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to design talent, but you would...

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Well considering that Trudeau personally lobbied Bezos back in February (https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2018/02/07/trudeau-meeting-amazon-ceo-as-toronto-vies-for-new-hq.html), it seems like the...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

PM Trudeau announced yesterday's Vancouver expansion in person. You really think the PM would come out for this relatively measly news if Amazon was going to pick Toronto for HQ2 in the near future?...

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

Oh please, let's conveniently forget that South Station is a 15 minute walk away. Stamford has absolutely nothing over the Seaport, so how about we stop this nonsense?

Re: 50 Liberty @ Fan Pier | 50 Liberty Drive | Seaport

Really? I think they'll be a hit, assuming the plywood railings are temporary and the bottom is some sort of cafe. What's not to like about elevated seating on the water?

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

The striped spandrels completely kill this thing and are a total 180 from the "jewel box" renderings. They make it look like the building took off from Rt. 128 and landed in downtown Boston.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

I've heard this argument dozens of times and, quite frankly, I don't get it. How does putting their HQ in/around DC give them a stronger hand with the government?

This is a great idea. If there's any way you can get it to the right person at City Hall I have no doubt Walsh will jump on it.

Public officials would no doubt scream safety and accessibility, but there's no reason why those should be major obstacles.

There's been a lot of talk of reviving ferries in Boston, and NYC has gone full steam ahead on ferries in the East River. So here's a thought:
