Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

For what you're getting for the price, dorm rates are a huge ripoff compared to even high Boston rents. Luckily most (or at least a substantial portion) are paid by parents that are all-too-happy-to...

Re: Bartlett Yards | 2565 Washington Street | Roxbury

Lol what do you think bruh?

The ground level might end up OK so I can't disapprove of the project as a whole. Still, it's definitely going to make some "ugliest of Boston" lists over the next few...

Re: Kenmore Square North

Lol the massing of nearly all newer DC buildings are big blocky turds. Some of the facades are OK but most aren't great with street-level retail and vibrancy. It's much more noticeable in DC when...

Re: Kenmore Square North

So they're going to build some banal turd that can be found in Washington DC. Lol. Terrible.

Re: The Residences at Forest Hills | 3694 Washington Street | Jamaica Plain

I mean increase density and you increase demand for retail. Unfortunately these newer buildings are probably charging much higher commercial rents so there will be a "transition" (or long-term empty...

Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

That's the motivation behind many works of art. Good art (by one definition at least) really makes you think why it makes you feel that way. I think it's ugly but it is in an out-of-the-way...

Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

Well, it's certainly not conventionally attractive, but it achieves its purpose of art: it really makes you think. It's offensive, really draws your eye, almost repulsive, a very provocative piece. ...

Re: Bartlett Yards | 2565 Washington Street | Roxbury

Just beautiful. Gorgeous and contextual, really gives that local Boston flair and personality.

Re: BU Development Thread

The base can be reworked a bit. I love the upper part though.

Re: Worcester Improvements

I mean, the subsidies are questionable (as with many projects anywhere), but if the surrounding blocks actually get developed and filled as planned, it will essentially double the walkable (for...

Re: Worcester Improvements

Lived in Worcester for 2 years for graduate school, and gotta say, that place sucks the life out of you. Never seen such a dead, decrepit historic city in my life. Very few pleasant outdoor spaces...

Re: Arsenal Yards | Arsenal Mall Redevelopment | Watertown

The new tower massing looks great. New landmark for the area. The old massing was good too but this is even better.

Re: Briv

Re: UMass Boston Residence Hall 1 | Columbia Point | Dorchester

I would click "Like" if we had that extension. I guess it's the "upscaling" of every corner of Boston, in a way. Now there's gonna be rich kids from the suburbs just like at almost every college or...

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

Yeah, there's just a severe lack of any street life, so even though it is a historic city, there's nowhere in the area with that city vibe. Just a bunch of old triple-deckers scattered around filled...

Re: Worcester Improvements

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

Worcester is pretty crappy by Boston standards but by "post-industrial New England medium city" standards it is doing OK. Better than Waterbury and Fall River at least. The public realm is very...

Re: Briv

Well it's based on the amount of user activity. A New Jersey section was set up a few years ago and the NYC section was massively expanded. The quality of discussion isn't much different either. ...
