Re: Kenmore Square North

I agree that the Hotel Commonwealth had/will have more of an impact since it replaced a large number of Back Bay Newbury Street style commercial row buildings. However, this building is quite...

Re: Rose Kennedy Greenway

I'm pretty certain on this site years ago someone linked an article quoting the designer of the trellises who claimed that vines were not intended, but rather that the trees planted adjacent will...

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

Purely my subjective opinion, I've been biting my tongue on this one but some buildings just let you down out of the gate and others do not, this one is not so great... but it's rising from a parking...

Re: Dorm Tower @ Emerson College | 1-3 Boylston Place | Downtown

In addition to the alley, I think Emerson also owns the building that formerly was home to the Mercury Bar and Remington's on Boylston St. (adjacent to the alley). I can't imagine Emerson will allow...

Re: Dorm Tower @ Emerson College | 1-3 Boylston Place | Downtown

The sidewalks are busier than they used to be in that part of town, but the irony is that for the joe public there is nowhere to go. It's more institutional, less accessible...

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

I expect a user agreement and terms of use will be coming soon to archboston given it exists on the Toronto site. The issue that Beton Brut raises is that for some contributors retaining ownership...

Re: Scape Student Housing | 1252-1268 Boylston Street | Fenway

Perhaps the decline of gay venues in Boston is just following overall local commercial gentrification trends. In Boston, dive bars/neighborhood taverns close up shop on a regular basis, strip clubs...

I'll try to make the meetup wherever it occurs, but my preference is downtown during the work week.

Re: The Whitney Hotel (née John Jeffries House) | 142-170 Charles Street | Beacon Hil

speculating here but this is probably within the historic landmark district with strict design review so perhaps higher quality materials were required leading to a better than usual outcome

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

I'd say the Amazon debacle. I'll begin by stating I'm no fan of Amazon, which in some ways may be the 21st century walmart, and all the collateral damage it's left in it's wake. For many in the...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I think it's fair for Keolis to take some blame for the conditions on the commuter rail during the parade. I tried unsuccessfully to get into work via train from about 8 to 8:30 a.m. I live on the...

Re: The New Retail Thread

removing the ornate grill work etc. from the base of this building was like taking all the frosting off the cake (I believe a phrase once used by Robert Campbell).

Re: The New Retail Thread

I hate to raise the alarm, but the bar situation in central Boston is in such crises that the city is now at least at the Defcon 2 level. I blame the cost of liquor licenses in Boston; the whole city...
