Re: General Infrastructure

I grant you that steps to nowhere is a bit silly, but it does send the message "hey, look! you can hang out in DTX even if you're not sketchy, and look, it's actually a bit boojie!"

Re: General Infrastructure

Are there plans to make this permanent - and look/feel permanent?

Stat, I don't see this as any less than the NYC interventions. If anything, actually, I think this goes further by truly creating...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Probably very much off-topic, but I've been noticing lots of new flights and possibly new airlines at T.F. Green. Anyone have the pulse on what's been cooking there?

Re: The New Retail Thread

I get it, but the reporter turned a potentially interesting comparison into an Aesop's fable with the moral that people of all stripes are nice. Barf?

Re: The New Retail Thread

^ I remember back when the Globe was worth reading (does that make me old?)

Honestly, as an assignment, this wasn't a bad "local flavor" reporting idea... but executed with all the nuance and...

Re: Revere Developments

Thanks to everyone for answering my sincere curiosity about Revere - quite an education I've got in the previous 10 or so posts.

I'm still knocking my head on the wall trying to figure out why...

Re: The New Retail Thread

Jaho Coffee Roasters and Wine Bar opened on the corner of Huntington and Harcourt St - basically right underneath the Pru-Copley gerbil tube. I wish them well. They've seemed busy so far for...

Re: Revere Developments

What's the deal with Revere? Is it a long-ingrained image problem? How could T-accessible beachfront property - and high-end amenities to cater to those properties - not be exploding in this market?...

Re: Ode to Brutalism

Rowley Way in north London (near St. John’s Wood). Beautiful on a number of levels actually. Look at it from the north - where it abuts the railroad tracks - you can see how it’s designed to cleave...

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

It fits: Seaport Blvd is the Comm Ave of the "New" Boston.

Comm Ave: Old money, understated elegance and classical forms
Seaport Blvd: Global finance, on-trend glitz, ephemeral fashion

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

We need to think bigger.

Eliminate SFR/Storrow all the way from Cambridge Street (SFR will feed directly into the Pike) to Charlesgate. Build the Pike's long-needed Back Bay ramps. Voila - no need...

Re: Tremont Crossing | Roxbury

^ That seems harsh. They're packing and layering a ton of retail into a small footprint. It can't all face Tremont - though in fact the small storefronts mostly do. And what doesn't face Tremont...

Re: Kenmore Square North

Re: The Parkway Apartments | 1507 VFW Parkway | West Roxbury

I've always referred to it as Rt 1 also. At some point they officially re-routed 1 North coming up from Foxboro onto, of all things, 95 South to bring it over to a 93 North concurrency. Not sure why...

Re: The Parkway Apartments | 1507 VFW Parkway | West Roxbury

Re: The Aberdeen | 1650 Commonwealth Ave. | Brighton

I don't get the hate. This does exactly what you want an in-fill building to do. Alright, do the narrow (staircase?) windows look somewhat reminiscent of prison or self-storage? Yeah... maybe... But...

Re: Old Boston Edison Plant | Summer St | South Boston

Re: Indianapolis, a Bike Haven City

Thanks for putting together such a great post. A lot of great moments on that cultural trail - though I have to say many seem more 'contrived'/'interventionist' than authentically urban, just judging...
