Re: Long Island Bridge

Is the maintenance funded? That is my real question. The previous bridge was vehicle restricted due to corrosion long before it was taken down.




I believe for about a decade of that time...

Re: Long Island Bridge

Where is Boston going to get the money for this? Last bridge nearly fell down before it was taken down. "Sustainability" means you can economically maintain the infrastructure and we already have...

Re: City Hall Plaza Revamp | Government Center

No it doesn't... electronic records mostly eliminate the need for one big centralized bureaucratic office. More than half of the current city hall staff could relocate to satellite offices in the...

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

Also, technically it should probably be in design a better Boston or something because every actual stadium proposal that was ever made public has been shot down.

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

Well, the vision can't just be "a stadium" for it to make any sense in or immediately around Boston. Those days are hopefully long past where people are going to throw up a stadium in a cheap field...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Except the bars at Encore will still close at 2. The 4am is just for people at the tables and slots who are actively gambling.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I don't think I am missing that... the "suitability" thing is a big red flag in terms of the rule of law. Having a law setting up a commission accountable to no one that can make all sorts of...

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

Well played, sir.

Though I think he meant that you can see One Congress in the background of that live camera shot... a bit far and it hasn't risen above the surrounding buildings yet so that cam...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

And then another commission that could fine the ethics...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Gone are the days of plunking a casino in the middle of nowhere and automatically making money. 5 minutes from Boston should do just fine though.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I saw the big excavation when they were building, but for some reason I thought there was an at grade section or even a second floor. I can't see to find floor plans anywhere at the moment.
