Re: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

Well why the fuck are we tolerating this? This is a forum on development, not a place to spew alt-right intolerance. So anyone whose purpose here is to espouse those views should be shown the door...

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

Oh, it's just BCDC, so maybe doesn't mean anything, we'll see.

Re: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

What exactly is pc about this? Get your hateful white nationalist bullshit out of here. Not sure why we let racist political trolls run rampant on a development discussion forum.

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

Critique the policies, don't make ad hominem attacks. The fuck.

Re: 45 Townsend Street | Roxbury

One of the most impressive massings I've seen. Many varied forms on a very hilly plot and a quality park that connects to surroundings. I'm sure the materials won't be stunning but I'm sold based...

Re: Best North American Skylines - Ranked

I think DC can be categorized as 4B (maybe even 4A). Tysons is starting to look pretty impressive with the new Capital One tower and some nice residential highrises. It is a bit suburban/spread out...

Re: Worcester Improvements

Essentially nowhere with lots of pedestrians walking around. I lived in Worcester for 2 years and street life is 100% dead in winter months except hardcore druggies and/or prostitutes. In the...

Re: Worcester Improvements

The church plot is a separate but related development. It'll be developed in the same aggressively bland style. I mean I'm very glad Worcester is developing some modern, urban, higher-end housing...

Re: Worcester Improvements

"Incredible"? It's about as banal as it gets, except for the park (which is supposed to be developed soon). I mean, I'm glad Worcester is finally getting its first apartment complex of this style,...

Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

For what you're getting for the price, dorm rates are a huge ripoff compared to even high Boston rents. Luckily most (or at least a substantial portion) are paid by parents that are all-too-happy-to...

Re: Bartlett Yards | 2565 Washington Street | Roxbury

Lol what do you think bruh?

The ground level might end up OK so I can't disapprove of the project as a whole. Still, it's definitely going to make some "ugliest of Boston" lists over the next few...

Re: Kenmore Square North

Lol the massing of nearly all newer DC buildings are big blocky turds. Some of the facades are OK but most aren't great with street-level retail and vibrancy. It's much more noticeable in DC when...

Re: Kenmore Square North

So they're going to build some banal turd that can be found in Washington DC. Lol. Terrible.

Re: The Residences at Forest Hills | 3694 Washington Street | Jamaica Plain

I mean increase density and you increase demand for retail. Unfortunately these newer buildings are probably charging much higher commercial rents so there will be a "transition" (or long-term empty...

Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

That's the motivation behind many works of art. Good art (by one definition at least) really makes you think why it makes you feel that way. I think it's ugly but it is in an out-of-the-way...

Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

Well, it's certainly not conventionally attractive, but it achieves its purpose of art: it really makes you think. It's offensive, really draws your eye, almost repulsive, a very provocative piece. ...

The base can be reworked a bit. I love the upper part though.
