Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

This project fills me with optimism for what might be possible elsewhere in the city. The cap looks like something a 1950's graphic artist would have drawn in response to a "Boston in the year 2000"...

Re: TransitMatters Regional Rail Plan

To be clear, the Foxborough flourish is from Scalziand. I think TransitMatters would send the trains up the Providence line - which makes sense if this is a relatively cost-controlled proposal,...

Re: TransitMatters Regional Rail Plan

Data, I saw that tidbit about SCR alignment that Jim Aloisi tossed out in Commonwealth over the weekend: https://commonwealthmagazine.org/opinion/time-to-reconsider-s-coast-rail-phased-plan/. Have to...

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

Even cheaper than the bus lane - and revenue positive at the outset at least - would be committing two bodies down there to writing tickets to all the deliveries and double parkers on that stretch....

Re: Brookline Developments

Scroll through historical Street View and you can get the whole evolution. A failed (pre-peak-quinoa) b.Good, Cognac Bistro, then the Indian place that has since taken over the Rubin's space near the...

Re: 2/28/18: Thank You TransitMatters for a Bold and Practical Vision

I would have loved to see an appendix with data supporting the notion that trains can be turned faster at South Station. Where this group has had its greatest successes (scrapping the Auburndale...

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

Worth mentioning that the parking lot MassDOT would have to take in order to extend Malvern north, at 76 Ashford Street (http://app01.cityofboston.gov/ParcelViewer/?pid=2100417000), is the ONLY...

Re: Kenmore Square North

The line about marathon runners is mine, so I'm coming back in to say "no, not really seriously." More of a statement of fact than idolatry to note that on that one day in April, thousands of runners...

Re: Kenmore Square North

If they build 8 stories on that corner, and unless the setback is improbably deep, it seems like points west (i.e. the marathoners' view coming up Beacon Street) would lose their line of sight to the...

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

Also note that any development of those Children's parcels will be complicated by the fact that the Green Line tunnel between Kenmore and Fenway runs underneath them, in a more or less diagonal line...

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

Mild correction: MassDOT owns that parcel, and the Red Sox are a taxpaying lessee for their use of the parcel for gameday parking. Not sure how MASCO fits into the mix, but I'm pretty sure they use...

Re: The New Retail Thread

Brookline Bank is moving a few doors down to the corner space in the S.S. Pierce building in Coolidge Corner (vacated by Walgreens in 2015). Posters in the door as of today call for a Spring 2017...

Re: 8-10 Waldo Street Coolidge Corner Brookline

Relevant to the discussion, though better suited for another thread if more information is available: this is not the only 40B proposal for Coolidge Corner that would go tall. Back in August, the Tab...

Re: 8-10 Waldo Street Coolidge Corner Brookline

The 40b question deserves some serious coverage, too. Haven't they been hovering at 9 percent for a couple years now with a large volume of proposals in the pipeline? Don't know the details of how...

Re: 8-10 Waldo Street Coolidge Corner Brookline

Lololol it's horrible. Tell you what though, whatever happens here, if it goes tall it'll be bad, guaranteed. Everything in Brookline taller than Pelham Hall (foreground right in the render) is...

Re: Kenmore Sq

Some kind of a co-op? It shows a single owner on city assessing but there are units for sale on the real estate websites. I was curious enough to look it up because back in the day I almost got to...

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