Apparently public comments are open until the 22nd. All these things can be submitted.

EDIT: I have commented, and I urge others to do so.

I'm not. I'm saying we were in charge. We are no longer in charge. We could be in charge again somewhere else.

I also reiterate Beton's and Justin's concern from earlier - some posts on this site...

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

I believe Winthrop Square is original Shawmut Peninsula, but I could be slightly off.

Re: MXD II | 325 Main St. | Kendall Square

It's great close up but not great zoomed out. Could just be the render, similar to what happened with MIT's Building 4. High-quality facade that we all hated in drawings but liked in reality.

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

What's standard on the corporate internet is not standard on aB. There has never been a "we" to aB that can do anything with users' content before. It has never had management.

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

Looked at it again and I still disagree. No label on the renders with colored buildings says "before" or "6/4 version" or a meeting name. The white renders are in a section dedicated to discussing...

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

I believe those are massing models. That's the section of the presentation they're in, and earlier in the presentation the renders are still green and brown.

All of which will have a positive impact beginning in about 2030.

That's the point. Nothing has happened. For the past ten years. It would have been easy and fast to appoint mods and upgrade the software a week ago. Nothing has happened.

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

It's not really the "main level", they're low floors where offices wouldn't sell anyway and that are directly linked to the existing garage.
