Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

A couple of problems with this:

1. To get to the parking you'd need to tunnel under the tracks, as the parking is in the basement and there is definately no room on the casino side for a bridge...

Re: Regional Rail (including North-South Rail Link)

A better alternative to batteries that doesn't need overhead wire is hydrogen trains (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/cars/news/hydrogen-fuel-cell-trains-run-british-railways-2022/). They are currently...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Re: Charlie Card/MBTA Fare Replacement system

I think it would be trivial to look at the boarding/unloading data for the gated stations and find heavy abusers. A repeated pattern of the same account swiping in at two stations in the morning or...

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

As upset as I am about losing 300 seats, after reviewing the PNF again I found some positives for the changes:

1. The bleachers will now have easy to reach concessions at the top
2. The "function...

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

Pru parking is $18 with a redsox ticket, and it's a pretty easy walk from there.

Re: Crossroads at Kenmore | 560 Commonwealth Ave | Kenmore Square

It looks like a stalactite fell from the roof of a cave and drove itself into the ground in the middle of Kenmore. Not a huge fan.

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

I don't believe it's under the part of the garage they are leaving. But I doubt it is more economical to bury it than to re-use the part that they are leaving.

Re: The New Retail Thread

Re: Regional Rail (including North-South Rail Link)

How hard would it be to cut and cover the grand junction if you wanted to run some sort of rapid transit through it

Re: Downtown Crossing

My point is no construction can happen there without the consent of 33 Arch ownership in the first place because the two buildings are so entwined.

Re: Downtown Crossing

The owners of 33 Arch would have to be on board with whatever happens because they are deeded spots in that garage and the access to the garage is through 33 Arch. It would have to be a coordinated...

Re: Parcel 12 | Massachusetts Avenue at Boylston Street | Back Bay

Maybe I'm pessimistic but I really don't think anything will ever be built on those parcels. There is very little in them that isn't highway or MBTA track. Parcel 10 would be almost impossible with...

Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

Anyone know when phase II will start? The most exciting thing about this is going to be watching the bulk of the garage come down.

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

I didn't realize there were going to be escalators here, the rendering had stairs.

Anyone know the reliability of an escalator for a 0 degree winter night? lol

The main draw for this would be tourists in the downtown hotels.
