Re: Fenway Area Redevelopment

Re: Marriott Moxy Hotel | 240 Tremont Street (Parcel P-7A) | Theater District

Re: Motor Mart Tower | 201 Stuart Str. | Park Sq | Boston

^^^My compare!

On the building, how about some Art Deco medallions around the crown depicting modes of transport from the 20's through today, e.g.: a locomotive, a 30's car, a P 38, a 707, a space...

Re: What was Boston like in the [recent] past?

If it went its own way, maybe you'd have had a core of a downtown Jewish neighborhood the way you've got the core of an Italian one in the North End. (Old school Blue Hill Ave, Morton St,...

Re: The Boulevard (née The Times/Littlest Bar) | 110 Broad St | Downtown

Forget the shutters. Why must the adjoining wall look like the façade of the Lafayette Place parking garage with all the charm of a urinal cake?
