Re: Assembly's Edge | Assembly Square | Somerville

Thanks! They must have renamed the "Northern Artery" after Msgr. McGrath before I-93 was built. I agree, though, that the name should be dropped, or at least that these buildings when up should get a...

Re: City Hall - Redevelopment - Preservation - Relocation

Well, the City of Boston owns a lot of buildings. Renting office space won't get rid of the schools, the maintenance yards, the other city office buildings, the libraries...

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

And that distinction is the single biggest reason why the race discussion in America goes nowhere: "racism" can be either a systemic economic reality that deprives Black Americans of wealth across...

Re: Hood Business Park | 480-570 Rutherford Avenue | Charlestown

I don't really consider this an urban site, and I'm not sure how you activate the side walls of a concert venue.

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

I think that the bigger picture is that development in the US right now (not only in Boston) has no concept of building housing for medium incomes. You're either building high-rent ($2,000 and up for...

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

Ramos wildly misses the point here. First off, the delay in West Station isn't about money, it's about space for the layover yard, which is a significant benefit to service levels across the...

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

I think that they would connect to Beacon St, but the render cuts off weirdly where they pasted their models onto the background.

Also, this design is from 2015 - I think it will be revised at...

Re: Silver Line to Chelsea

I was actually hoping you'd get better pics than the Chelsea Record, but of course IRL comes first.

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

One assumes that they get to rebid the rights to the parcel.

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

"the developer is required to close the Phase II lease by December 2020."

Also, I'd suggest splitting the thread at this point to allow the Phase I buildings (and BeeLine's photo stream) a bit of...

Re: Landmark Center Expansion | Fenway

I agree. They didn't cancel that portion of the project, only postponed it.

Re: Charlie Card/MBTA Fare Replacement system

Not necessarily. There's a lot of room spent on the gate mechanisms themselves. It looks like the new ones will be much thinner = wider gates.

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

No, I'm not. First off, it's not a "malformed chicken." That would have been the case if MassDOT were proposing their initial high-speed ramp approach. It's a transit-ready neighborhood with a...

Re: Porter Square Develoments

Given all the ink that's being spilled on CVS turning its stores into health clinics and getting out of the grocery business (after purchasing Aetna), we may be glad for Target in a couple of years.

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

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

Absolutely not. This is first and foremost a highway project. It resolves deficient bridges, lowers long-term maintenance costs, and clears a nasty traffic bottleneck.

Re: Winthrop Square Garage Being Demolished

The FAA was never going to accept a 775' height. They were clear on that from the outset. The decision by MP to propose at that height was either deluded or (more likely) a way to appease the NIMBYs...
