Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

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

I think this was answered way upthread but can't find it, when the podiums are done, are they committed to immediately building the residential high rise?

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Would love to Boston win this. A better proposal in my mind is for the SST to be used as trophy tower for those desiring an urban lifestyle and the rest go to Waltham, Needham, Lexington or some...

Re: General Electric HQ | 244-284 A Street | Fort Point

When the dust settles and GE reaches bottom it will probably be a good buy opportunity. Not to say it won't cancel/postpone building plans or something even more dramatic.

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Fixed this on Wikipedia. There is so much disinformation on that site it's almost useless. You certainly have to be wary of mistakes or purposeful BS since anyone can edit it.

Re: Wynn Everett Casino | Everett

Can Everett make a home rule petition to extend liquor hours? Seems like they could. If they got late night hours it could be the start of real changes in the Boston nightlife scene.

Re: Public Use Heliport

GE probably wants to use helicopter to:

get to private jets at Hanscom

For short trips to CT, NYC, NJ

Doubt they're really interested in using helicopter to get to Logan.

Re: Fairmont Line Upgrade

why not 1 extra loco with 3 car trains to get 30-minute headways with three trainsets as a cheap way to test the results of short headways. If more hardware is warranted, add another 3 car train for...

Re: Old Boston Edison plant on Summer St

It's old and ugly but the stack height and unusual color makes it one of the better landmarks in that area. I hope they build something tall and notable, not a 6 story apartment block.

Re: 111 Federal St. | Formerly Trans National Place (Winthrop Square) Part 2

Re: One Seaport Square | Parcels B-C@Seaport Sq. | Seaport

Maybe a crazy transit pitch but a one or two track tram like those in Amsterdam traveling to stub ends or a loop on seaport and D street seems like a no brainier given the width of both streets....
