Re: CambridgeSide Office/Lab | First Street | East Cambridge

My understanding is that these various CambridgeSide proposals are multiple separate (and largely unrelated) projects. They are not, per se, "phases" of one project. For example:

Emilia Fazzalari and Wyc Grousbeck (married couple, he owns the Celtics) are picking up the tab for the footbridge. It'll be the "Fazzalari Sky Bridge" and will open in September.

Re: Roxbury parcels 9 & 10 | Melnea Cass Blvd | Roxbury

Re: Charlie Card/MBTA Fare Replacement system

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

So in November you thought that Baker would oppose a fare increase? I thought it's been pretty clear for years that Baker supports periodic incremental fare increases.

No, removing the bleacher seats absolutely is the "point."
