Re: Clippership Wharf | East Boston

Yes, I'd reserve judgment until the facade is finished.

Off topic, but is soundproofing generally worse in wooden apartment buildings versus steel ones?

Re: North-South Rail Link

I don't think that Musks plan would work well for the NSRL. The real benefit of the north south rail line isn't connecting the two stations. Riders can already hop on the orange line and go from...

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

The hov lane would have to start after the leverett onramp, unless the state is willing to build more lanes. I think I93 south in that area is a greater chokepoint then north though.

Make the hov on I93 south in Somerville/Charlestown so it's in affect in the afternoon. Make it 24 hours to make it simple.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Although a Springfield to NYC trip will cost a good bit more then a local trip. I'd expect it to be at least 25 bucks or more in fare revenue.

Re: Boston worst traffic in the country.

Public Transit is the anwser to traffic issues. Incentivise transit use, and build around transit.

Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

No need for all of the full site renders. There is another thread for that. Still a good chance the office tower never happens.

Re: 10 Fan Pier Blvd | Fan Pier Parcel E | Seaport

Being surrounded by busy buildings is better for the ICA then being surrounded by parking lots imho. Even if the ICA is not as visible.

I'm going to say that the silver line underground as built is the most inefficient thing and the biggest waste of money.

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects
