Re: Logan Flight Additions

They can accommodate a220s though. The a220-100 is approved and the a220-300 likely lies in the near future.

If you're feeling hopeful for jetblue, they do have a220s on order...

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

I know, that's why I wanted to know what they're really called because I knew everyone was calling it a brand name!

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

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

Honestly, I had shown a picture of this to my Watertown resident relative, and her response might have been the look they were going for that I had never thought of - "It looks like a cruise ship!"

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Well, European competition meant that meant it was really easy for business travellers to re-route their trip through laptop friendly countries, meaning the hit in traffic was very immediate.

Re: 60 Kilmarnock St | Fenway

You really sort of could add ground level retail at that rate, as long as suburban style retail keeps dying out like it is.

Thing is, I noticed right before the last recession lots of restaurants...

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Sounded like a Boston accent with a speech impediment or an outsider doing a terrible job of mimicking the accent.



Yes, that's what it sounded like!

Re: MIT Museum/Boeing | 314 Main St. | Kendall Square

Wtf?! They are an extremely conservative lender and their current strength might be owing to the fact that they were relatively unscathed in the last recession.

Re: 40 Trinity Place | 426 Stuart Street | Back Bay

Yeah, I find it surprising that the ultra-luxury crowd in a global city like boston wouldn't at least recognize the name.
