Shifting the bike lane behind the parking seems like an easy enough fix. Interesting that they're going with back-in angled parking here; I haven't seen that anywhere in Boston.

Kensington's just...

Re: Assembly Row (Assembly Sq Redevelopment) | Assembly Square | Somerville

^ This project isn't part of Assembly Row (nor is it part of the 5 Middlesex Ave project), so should it get its own thread? It seems a little big for "Somerville Developments"...

Re: Fenway Area Redevelopment

Re: Fenway Area Redevelopment

I'm pretty sure it's driven by the way school construction is funded.

I don't believe the current funding channels have any mechanisms for the construction of revenue-generating space. So even...

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

I too have taken those boats in Bangkok and loved them.

They would never work in the US, however. They aren't handicap accessible, for one. They'd also be 100% miserable in poor weather. By the...

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

I did read the article. The "more than 1,200 spaces" referenced therein come in Phase II, not Phase I. Their only connection to Phase I is that Phase I will contain a "pedestrian connection" to...

Re: Assembly Row (Assembly Sq Redevelopment) | Assembly Square | Somerville

Correct, a child care center.
