Re: General Infrastructure

Must be a city hall thing because on the other side there is a weird semi signaled cross walk from City Hall to Faneuil Hall across Congress. There is a light at the stop light in the northbound...

Interesting. I'll have to dig into the threads there.

Re: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

I'm a curmudgeon so I really dislike all of these. None of them seem to understand the context at all. In some ways, while I really value the pastoral nature of the Common, having a memorial to MLK...

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

It does, they've just chosen not to do a pip concrete core. Not sure why that decision was made--ten years ago every building I saw was built that way the pip core seems to be much more common now....

Re: The New Retail Thread

New Thai restaurant, Kala Thai Cookery, in the space at the corner of Hannover and Blackstone Street across from the Public Market. There have been a few restaurants in here in recent years and I...

Re: 60 Kilmarnock St | Fenway

I'm afraid I disagree. 451 Marlborough is one of my favorite recent Boston buildings--it is so contextual and at the same time utterly of it's moment. It's a building that really does a good job of...

Re: General Infrastructure

I went by there earlier today and stood on the curb baffled by the expanse of pale green paint. It was so unexpected. But as a first step to fixing that road it's great.

Re: BU Development Thread

Me too and I honestly have no idea what you are talking about. I saw something very simplistic. Simplistic not simple. So maybe in your face like Koolhaas but not the real elegance Mecanoo brings to...

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

I'd love to see a picture. But my expectations for a TAT building are not high. They must have a great price point given the amount of work (and fairly high profile, with the Raffles Hotel) that we...

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

This. The underside may actually be one of my favorite parts of this project (after the shaping of the vertical addition). It is unusual and interesting and yet somehow manages to serve as a backdrop...

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

Elkus Manfredi, Stantec, and CBT. Should be some kind of moratorium.

I totally agree we have great firms in town that should be getting the work. Could have phrased it better (and we have some...

Re: Residences at 399 Congress St (formerly Madison Seaport Hotel)

Well, it's Rafael Vinoly not Stantec. He's not my favorite architect by a long shot but he's in a different class. I'd be thrilled if we could get some more out of town architects. The best things we...

Re: East Boston Developments

Planning is all well and good. Even if it is codified as zoning, which isn't happening for recent plans in JP and South Boston, the ZBA is granting the vast majority of variances so planning and...

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

What is Boston's architectural review board?

Does she mean the BCDC (which met last night), which certainly aren't the last word on building design, their purview is public realm, not building...

Re: Somerville Developments

It's such a nice presentation (justification?) until page 12 " Modulate residential mass to capture additional space." In other words, fill up every damn inch of space regardless of all that stuff we...

Re: 60 Kilmarnock St | Fenway

I agree with you about crossing the alley. I'm sure they are making an argument about exit cores and saving money, but it would be a better project if it respected the context a bit more.

Re: The Ropewalk | 5th Street | Charlestown Navy Yard

It is an incredibly cool building, one of the few ropewalks left in the US. It has defied developers for years--I think it would have been great start up space or something similar that could have...

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

Ah, that's where it is.

Honestly, I kind of like it. Mostly because it isn't gray. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

Re: Boston (née New Brighton) Landing | New Balance Complex | Brighton

And there is a Stop and Shop a few hundred feet away that's about to get a major make over. Roche Bros just doesn't make a lot of sense here--and there are plenty of places it would.

Re: Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

Interesting isn't it? If you look at the section where the masonry has been installed, you can see some kind of structure exposed where I assume the balconies will be. I wonder if they are using a...

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

I can't figure out where all that yellow is going. If I look at the BCDC presentation on the web, there is yellow at the entry and around some building-scale window elements. While I know the mock up...
