Re: Silver Line to Chelsea

Finally! Crucial part of the urban ring.

Would like it to be heavy or light rail if possible, though.

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

And we know it would be so much better if they closed the parking lot to cars and made everyone park along the road...

Walmart is not a good example of mixed modes.

Re: Providence developments

That would be great. Providence could really use some new office space and it looks like maybe they are considering something other than knocking down the Superman Building.

Re: Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

Sad to see the Homan's building coming down.

Always loved it and thought they could rehab it with apartments and ground floor retail.

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

Also in Sullivan routing of busways so Broadway-going buses would go straight up instead of making a loop like they do now.

Re: "Midtown"/Widett Circle in a non-Olympics Boston

Very true, but they would have to be careful not to end up with a tower in the park vibe.

Re: "Midtown"/Widett Circle in a non-Olympics Boston

A large urban wild next to downtown would be beautiful and unusual (apart from maybe crime in a large trafficked space) but Boston can't afford to lose anymore building land.

Re: Best North American Skylines - Ranked

Hartford is a little too low, Providence is too. Not a huge skyline, but a never the less a gorgeous one (Superman, RI Capitol) Turks Head Building.

Re: Providence developments

Looks ugly when the skyline is only a couple blocks long.

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

They could take one lane of highway for light rail in the center and build an El above it for the other direction tracks.

Re: Providence developments

Thank God.

Maybe the developer will try his luck downtown where the tower should go.

Re: Official City Hall Plaza Proposals

They literally just planted some trees and called it redevelopment. It's not going to help the fact that the plaza is way out of scale with humans and needs to downsized.

Trees will make it a...

Not crazy about the name, but hey, it's finally going up, so I can't complain.

Re: Lowell 2015 update

A little imposing and slightly totalitarian once you know it's purpose but from a distance it just looks like a normal office building and I bet the glass reflects the canal nicely.

Re: Union Point | Former South Weymouth NAS | Weymouth

I can't imagine this'll ever happen. Might end up something like Assembly if we're lucky, but I doubt the glassy towers, smart infrastructure and fake lake are ever going in.

Too bad, would have...

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 700 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

Pretty awful, in my opinion. Looks like a stack of cardboard boxes...making it boxy.

Re: Boston - Most Embarrassing Blight That Tourists See

Even tourists with no architectural interest can tell that its ugly and doesn't fit what they thought (cobblestone streets, brick churches).
