Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Yup, Greater Boston's commuter rail is an antiquated mess. Make this affordable, comfortable, and reliable and you take a ton of cars out of the city. I know Tangent is just proposing a quick fix but...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

If you're coming south on 93 and want to go to sullivan you get off at Assembly. Why not just park there? If you're coming south on 99, why not take 16 to wellington. More parking in Wellington and...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Sullivan is an ugly wasteland but with the developments at Assembly/Encore/Hood/Union it will be part of the urban core in 10 years. (yea, not back bay but definitely way too urban for a park and...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

It's not intentionally ignorant.
Look at the development around Sullivan.
Assembly, Encore, Hood park, Union Square.
Look at the dense residential areas of East Somerville and Charlestown.

Sorry, I know I should let this go. but building a massive park and ride facility 2 stops from north station is a crazy idea.

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

yea, Seaport has taught me the importance of patience when it comes to these massive urban developments. I don't think there's one building I really like there but I was down there the other day and...

Re: City Hall Plaza Revamp | Government Center

It's a great concept, I just don't ever see city hall going for it. Maybe, maybe if a developer came in and did all the work but I cant see what developer would want to deal with the bureaucracy of...

Re: City Hall Plaza Revamp | Government Center

This whole 'tear down city hall plaza' thing is a lot like the new soccer stadium thread. There is no compelling reason to disrupt everything other than the aesthetics of the place. Day dream about...

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

If Kraft builds in the city, he wont build anything less than 25k with the option to expand if needed. Yes, the revs get a good suburban crowd but how much of those tickets are comp tickets. Any time...

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

yea, I've never paid.
Still tho, bar 'a stadium down town would be great fun' there's no real incentives to move. The optimist in me hopes that they've promised Bruce Arena 'something fun'.

Re: Cambridge Crossing (NorthPoint) | East Cambridge/Charlestown | Cambridge/Boston

There should be a lot of pedestrian and bike traffic thanks to this being the link between the GLX path and the charles river path. Might give it a bit of life.

I wonder if, by means of punishment, rather than fine Wynn, they insist he build the pedestrian bridge over the Mystic.

Re: Union Square D2.1 | 10 Prospect Street | Somerville
