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

One thing I've noticed from the report: Despite Secretary Pollack's publicly stated concern last month about the surface options being unwise choices due to flooding risk, the independent report...

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 665 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

This building just screams "Look at me! I'm different!" for no good reason. I know it's possible to make something that is both modern and that blends in with its neighbors. This is not it.

Re: BU Development Thread

This is my favorite quote from the first article, from the BU President:
"We wanted a building that in 2100 would stand up and mark the dynamic change in the University and talk about the century...

Re: The New Retail Thread

Intelligentsia Coffee opened their first Boston proper location today, in the lobby of 225 Franklin St. I visited this morning and it looks great (and the coffee was excellent as expected!)

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

150 W Broadway looks really good!

On a lot of those photos, the garage doors make me very sad. The ground floors are mainly parking in those buildings :-(

Re: Comm Ave Bridge Replacement.

Oh I totally agree. The stop sign for the trains was the lazy solution. The City of Boston would have (gasp) had to make changes to the road to make it safer for the trains, but clearly had no...

Re: Comm Ave Bridge Replacement.

"there's that stupid stop sign before Harvard ave that the train always gets stuck at so that 2-3 cars can cut off the train making that turn"

There used to be no stop signs for trains here but...

Re: Longfellow Bridge update

It is a retrofit. The original plans for the Longfellow simply had a striped bike lane with no physical separation. Only in the last year or so did MassDOT rethink those plans (after many years of...

Re: Beacon Hill: Charles Street Needs a Makeover

Adding to the above, the traffic signals on Charles St are also quite annoying. They have protected walk phases on the legs where there is no conflicting turn movements, but are exclusive walk phase...

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

The solution to traffic is to reorient out communities and build so that people don't have to drive as much. Focus new development on downtowns and town centers. Rework zoning so that mixed used is...

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

I see so many people complaining about Seaport traffic but whenever I've walked over there, it's never that bad. Between 5 pm and 6 pm it's a mess, but whenever I've gone there after 6, it's fine. I...

Wow, the rehabbed older buildings look great. And ugh, the newest buildings look like VEd crap.

Re: Commonwealth Avenue Improvement Project

In most places, the bike lanes will be wide enough for a faster bicyclist to pass a slower one, except for when the bike lanes dip behind bus stops. The design intentionally forces bikes to go...

Re: Longfellow Bridge update

Correct. The outbound bike lane and sidewalk are both wider than on the inbound side because of MassDOT's willingness to provide one rather than two outbound travel lanes. Advocates preferred and...

Re: Longfellow Bridge update

Does it bother anyone else that they painted the inside railing and lighting black but the outside railing and lighting the brown/green color? Shouldn't they all be the same?

Yes Blue Bottle is now open there, and Red Barn has moved out! Not sure if/where they moved somewhere nearby or just closed that location altogether. It's a shame really because Red Barn is locally...
