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

Just kind of curious, does (either?) employer offer free parking?

South Side ridership is up quite a bit.

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

I generally agree with what they are implying, but making the non-1A 128 CR stops cheaper at the expense of making outside 128 stops more expensive is not going to go over well, especially since it's...

Re: The New Office Thread

Seems that a lot of the jobs are manufacturing. Can't see them moving those jobs here. Moving all the non-manufacturing jobs into Cambridge would make sense.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

At least some of the riders had the option of taking the commuter rail.

This is one of those days where you should just WFH, if you can of course. Saw a picture of what looked like a ton of...

Re: Seaport Neighborhood - Infill and Discussion

I'd like to see the USPS parking lots developed, although being so close to the Pike exit it might be hard to build big there.

Re: Riverside Station development

Leasing rates for sure an issue, it's very likely that Riverside Center is at the top end for 128. But it's also pretty nice. If you were interested in only hiring workers who have a car (ie: older)...

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

The one really nice thing about the Seaport is that they are building actual quality structures there... unlike most of the area where it's basically public housing at 700k/unit.

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

Yeah. State is another 15 minutes on the Orange Line; and anything other than that is going to be even longer. So even Lowell riders are looking at least an hour.

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

That spot is too far to be realistic, unless you implement Express trains as mentioned.

The Pheasant Lane site also avoids any long term need to negotiate with NH. You would have to upgrade the...

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

South Atteboro kind of works as the de facto stop for residents of the Bucket. It's basically on the state line but is in Massachusetts. Is in a lot of ways similar to the Nashua idea brought up.

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

Fairly reasonable, but I think you can only do one more stop max because of time, given that most workers are going to have to transfer to the T to be close enough to get to their job.

The aux...

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

I remember hearing that, but I'm looking at the satellite imagery on Google Maps and that isn't realistic at all. Even two tracks with no path would be a tight fit.

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

I don't know you can say that. It's being used by the Commuter Rail now as it is, and you could even run service up there with no modifications, although it wouldn't make sense without a Kendall...

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

Looking at the render again, it sure looks like the intention is for the platform to be used by Worcester Line trains that will stop there. Don't think that would work with Green at all... maybe...

Re: 112 Shawmut Avenue | South End

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

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

Ooh nice. If Harvard wants Grand Junction it might actually happen, but we're talking 10+ years from now. Probably doesn't mean much for Urban Ring other than GJ itself.

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

If you think about it, they in theory could have built the NSRL on top of the CA/T when doing the Big Dig, once the tunnel was completed.

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

A ton I bet. It's a pretty long walk to the financial district.



I imagine most people would just stay on the CR and get on Green at NS. Greening Grand Junction would be a bigger deal.

Re: P&G close to deal for Fort Point land next to GE headquarters

I don't see how they could fit that much parking plus the building structure in there.
