Re: Motor Mart Tower | 201 Stuart Str. | Park Sq | Boston

I'm under the impression the shadow law law says no "new" shadows not no shadows whatsoever. And I think it's framed as a percentage during <X> time periods isn't it? If you cast shadows it's okay as...

Re: Motor Mart Tower | 201 Stuart Str. | Park Sq | Boston

I really like the Motor Mart Garage facade. I hope they don't alter it too much... it's probably the best looking garage we have in the city... probably because it doesn't actually look like a garage.

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

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Or you know rather than jump on the racism bandwagon maybe it has to do with needing to know the Spanish language.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Re: 321 Harrison Ave | South End

Not a huge fan of keeping the existing parking structure fronting Herald St. If the Pike ever gets decked (haha) that will be a huge dead spot. Then again the Pike may never get decked. So probably a...

Re: Back Bay Garage Tower | Dartmouth and Stuart | Back Bay

Better than what's there.

How many of you actually live within walking distance of the existing garage vs. complain anywhere from 30 to 3000 miles away?

Re: Local Politics Thread

Ballot initiatives are also non-binding in Massachusetts. The legislature has no responsibility to act or even implement them as written.

It is a good way to get the conversation moving though and...

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

I believe the parking garage is staying. Just getting a facade treatment.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

You paying? It's never happening. The GLX is the last major outward expansion the MBTA subway will ever see. It's just too prohibitively expensive to and no politicians want to put their name to it.

Dictatorships can be very efficient... not sure Democracies can ever be as efficient because of the consensus model of governing.
