Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

Yeah I felt the same way. The guy's heart was in the right place but he sorta whiffed on the article. I too am a bit unclear on how West Station will work with New Balance and Yawkey stops really...

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

We're talking about two different things here. Concept 1 is that non-whites should have more representation in the development and construction firms that are building out the Seaport in particular...

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

Agree completely and its something jass and cden have yet to answer. Instead I got some blah blah blah about "involving blacks in the planning of the neighborhood". Lets say you did that, and I...

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

All may be true, but bringing it back to the article and the Seaport, I don't see any evidence of unintended or intended racism. So, if the ICA is only doing White Power exhibits, then I get it. If...

Re: Winthrop Square Garage Being Demolished

Really, if it ends up 10 feet below FAA limits, I still think we spike the football and say FU to all NIMBY's. :D

Re: Whiskey Priest/Atlantic Beer Garden Redevelopment | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

To buy up the waterfront from the North End to the Seaport might cost a few more bucks than even Amos has at his disposal. :eek: Plus, once he croaks no guarantee his heirs don't sell to the...

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

Only semi-worthwhile point in the article was you could have required affordable housing to be built on site rather than contribute to a fund. One salient point in 100 mistruths.

I'll also say...

Re: Whiskey Priest/Atlantic Beer Garden Redevelopment | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

I think its ego. Amos envisions himself as the big swinging you know what on the waterfront and he's going to impose his vision. No, I don't think he's Mr. Burns, doing evil for the sake of doing...

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

No offense, but I strongly disagree with all of this. How in God's name could the city have made " black people feel welcome and accepted" in terms of the Seaport buildout? Are blacks excluded from...

Re: Whiskey Priest/Atlantic Beer Garden Redevelopment | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Glad to see some exposure on this. I'm also curious if what some of the commentators are saying is true, which is he's suing to block access to the beach by his house on Nantucket while at the same...

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

I was thinking the same thing. Its a bit unfair to say the city is 25% black but we went to the MFA and only found 3 black people there to use another example, when these places are 1) appeal to a...

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

I thought this site was about development, not architecture specifically. If I'm right then how the Glob covers the Seaport is absolutely in scope. Anti-development loons will seize on anything, no...

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

Count me in too. I'm a pretty liberal guy, but that whole article is absurd. I'm white as a ghost and can't afford to live there. Market forces dictates the makeup of the Seaport, not a concerted...

Re: Fenway Center Phase I | ~775 Beacon St | Fenway

@ dehoost,

1) your first point is a strawman argument that nobody is arguing against.

2) another strawman unfortunately. you have more flexibility driving than you do taking transit. Some...

Re: Fenway Center Phase I | ~775 Beacon St | Fenway

The part you're missing is if a majority of people want to preserve the right to drive into town for the game. It is a democracy, and not everyone wants to do multiple transfers, be packed like...

Re: Fenway Center Phase I | ~775 Beacon St | Fenway

This is all predicated on people having the same love of complex transit options as you do. Again, some people when coming into town for an event like the flexibility of coming and leaving when they...

Re: Fenway Center Phase I | ~775 Beacon St | Fenway

Completely agree. I'm all for public transit but some people are overestimating the experience. With a family of 4, especially if you have young kids, you have to drive to a station 20 or so miles...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

This will happen on the week of two Tuesdays and not a moment sooner.

City's priority is to build up where transit already is as they have no control over the shitty MBTA. Waiting for massive...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

In terms of housing, IMHO with a not too difficult amount of effort and planning the city can reach those 100,000 units and extra 200,000 people, which would push the city to a new height in...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Amazon or not, the city should commit to building 100,000, not 50,000 new units over the next dozen years or so. I'm not completely sure what the plan is, if there is one, for locating those original...
