Re: Unbuilt roads around metro Boston

My guess (and this is pure speculation) is that this had to do with driving culture in the 1920s. This was the same time that Robert Moses was building all sorts of tree-lined parkways throughout...

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

So I noticed something this evening that I hadn't noticed before or seen posted on here. Unfortunately I couldn't snap a picture because I was on the bus.

Re: MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

Nice pictures, BeeLine!

The gradient really falls apart 2/3 the way up. It's like they skipped 3 floors. This last picture is actually a little flattering to what it looks like in person, in my...

Re: MIT Museum/Boeing | 314 Main St. | Kendall Square

Full row of glass is up now - looks pretty good in person. Mirror sharp.

The edges of those small fins extending of the window are sort of a rust/orange color in the renderings, but look a little...

Re: MIT Museum/Boeing | 314 Main St. | Kendall Square

It's going to be primarily "retail" according to Kendall Square Initiative documents but I just searched online for 15 minutes and couldn't find any plans. The only thing I found is this part of a...

Re: MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

They did a few panels months ago and I was worried it would be waaaay too dark, but I'm impressed now!

Re: Proto | 88 Ames Str. - Kendall Sq. | Cambridge

Yep. Been 3 times at 8:45 am. They were out of coffee twice and the last time it was lukewarm.

Also, this street has really changed over the last year. Anyone who hasn't seen it should take a...

Other buildings. A Broad Institute building is right across the street, is the same height, and has a huge bank of windows.

Re: Proto | 88 Ames Str. - Kendall Sq. | Cambridge

Yes! I was hoping that this would be the location. There is also a flower shop going in next door to it that is opening in February I believe (according to the new sign on the door).

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

The light schedule there crossing Mass Ave is easily a minute long wait. I'd take the tunnel every time, no matter the direction. Why wait?

Re: MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

The first facade panels were placed on Building 4 at the end of this week. Seems pretty intricate but looks a little cheap in my opinion. Maybe with morning lighting someone can get a better picture....

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

Re: Brookline Developments

Saw the old Remax building at 420 Harvard Ave was knocked down in the last few weeks. I went back in this thread to 2015 and didn't see any info.

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

Eh, there's elevations in the document. It does look a bit deceptive in the render though.
