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

It certainly has, not for Boston area, but I know for sure in Green Bay, Seattle, the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Poland, England, etc. Unparalleled breadth of information on major development...

Re: Briv

Not sure that the world’s leading site for development information is “shit”. Spam to boost post count is a tiny fraction of all posts, and look at the Seattle forum for a good example of...

Re: Briv

I don’t care that strongly either way, but I find more benefit in joining a global community of urban enthusiasts, including active communities for NYC, NJ, DC, LA, and Seattle, than in staying...

Probably not much initially, but more of a long-term guarantee of hosting, moderation, and maintenance. If this site dies it is clearly the best option. It's more about the avoidance of loss than...

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

The new apartments downtown on Front Street are semi-complete (one of the two wings looks occupied, some retail opened). The AC Hotel near it seems to be taking forever to finish, maybe the rooms...

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. ...

Re: Briv

I mean if it really comes to it, I have enough clout to get a dedicated Boston section set up on SkyscraperCity. I mean, only if there's enough demand for it, which will only happen if this site...

Re: The Beverly (née Merano) (Parcels 1B & 1C) | Bulfinch Triangle | West End

Well, that means there's a pretty short list of cities that have matched or exceeded what's going on just in this immediate area. Probably NYC, Toronto, DC, LA, SF, Seattle, maybe a few others, but...

Re: The Beverly (née Merano) (Parcels 1B & 1C) | Bulfinch Triangle | West End

This whole area is pretty impressive in a way. The development in this area alone definitely exceeds that of nearly all New England/Northeast/Midwest smaller cities. Of course it's not as perfect...

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

I guess it'll look fine and no one will really care too much. Things usually look alright when completed, if not always up to our high standards (for architectural design, historic preservation,...

Re: Allston-Brighton Developments

Re: Allston-Brighton Developments

This is perfectly contextual for the modern era. It's a little taller than its surroundings but the massing is perfect for the area, mid-rise urban. Nothing like a suburban car-oriented apartment...

Re: Allston-Brighton Developments

Truly one of the nicest urban massings going up today. Totally transforms the feel of the area. DHZ22 had to talk shit about my comment predicting this a while back but whatever, fuck him.

Re: Mixed Use Complex | 345 Harrison Ave | South End

Little red section is fine. Yellow part less so, and I guess I appreciate the effort on the grey part's massing but it just looks off. I'd still live here if I was in the market (I'm guessing their...
