Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

So will 1400-1403 ever enter revenue service or will they always be training cars?

Re: Redevelopment of Symphony Huntington Properties

Yep. A facadectomy would be perfect here.

It won't happen, but it would be perfect.

Re: Redevelopment of Symphony Huntington Properties

The only buildings worth saving are the masterpieces was the mindset of 50's and 60's urban renewal folks.

Re: Redevelopment of Symphony Huntington Properties

Well yeah. Of course no one is touching Symphony Hall. It's the commercial buildings adjacent to the Hall that we are discussing.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

I forget. These first few sets will be an addition to the current fleet, not a replacement, correct?

Re: Marriott Moxy Hotel | 240 Tremont Street (Parcel P-7A) | Theater District

Ha. I naively thought the screen was going to be used basically as a marquee for the Colonial and other nearby theaters. Oh sweet summer child.

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

I think I started the née convention, mostly because I have a terrible memory and it helped me keep track of projects. But to be honest, it was always pretty clunky and I wouldn't blame the new mod...

Re: Memorial Drive Greenway Phase III

So the final lines are painted and I drove through around 6:45 this evening and as expected most people just ignored the new markings and it was the same clusterfuck it always is. Maybe even more so...

Re: General Electric HQ (Necco Buildings Reno) | 244-284 A Street | Fort Point

I am aware there will be something built on that parcel. My point was, whatever ends up being built there will have no relationship to this project and thus, not Phase II.

Does anyone know what happens to old concrete? Can it be ground down and reused in new concrete or does it all just go to landfill?
