Re: 1000 Boylston Street | MassDOT Parcel 15 | Back Bay

Stick, I gather Weiner’s team have been having troubles since late 2018, so this really isn’t a surprise, given their record (versus someone like Samuels’ success on the Fenway). Maybe that’s why the...

Re: 1000 Boylston Street | MassDOT Parcel 15 | Back Bay

My understanding is the fencing is more or less to deter the indigent encampments that have been there since St. C sold the site, and that the potties are for field workers doing pre-con site...

Re: Parcel 12 | Massachusetts Avenue at Boylston Street | Back Bay

Re: Parcel 12 | Massachusetts Avenue at Boylston Street | Back Bay

One of the hiccups is the neighborhood-types are demanding that they improve the southern sidewalk of Boylston Street during the Parcel 12 construction (which isn't in the area of work or the defined...

Re: 1000 Boylston Street | MassDOT Parcel 15 | Back Bay

No. They haven't closed the deal (as of Thursday), therefore permits can't be issued.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

For what it's worth, and as a long-time lurker/one-time poster who's gone fairly quiet, I really appreciate you posting pics of activity around town. Thanks, sincerely. Please, keep it up.

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

I clearly haven't been around for a few years, and this thread is the perfect example of why.

Re: Boston Properties Office Tower | 888 Boylston Street | Back Bay

It was always kinda the busiest place on Boylston though between the Apple Store, the Pru itself and the Hynes. I just wish the city would crack down on these idiot cabbies who loiter in the bus stop...

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

Sorry to veer OT, but what did Ginger's used to be? We ate there all the time in the early '00s, but the name escapes me.

EDIT: NM, it was Betty's Wok & Noodle.

Re: MassDOT Pike Parcels 12 - 15 | Boylston St. and Mass. Ave | Back Bay

Sorry, I'm so sorry. I've really tried to rachet back from being "that guy" the last year or so, but if you really look at the Mandarin, almost *all* of it is glass/storefront at street level. And...

Re: MassDOT Pike Parcels 12 - 15 | Boylston St. and Mass. Ave | Back Bay

Invite, engage, ecourage interest. Peeble's Parcel 13 proposal for sidewalk-level pedestrian/building engagement is frighteningly (sp?) similar to the Mandarin, with only the Boylston St. T entrance...

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

I recall Lee Kennedy craned empty containers into Berklee's site after they got down 10 ft. Empty trailers came to unload and picked up the full ones.

Re: Boston Properties Office Tower | 888 Boylston Street | Back Bay

They turned on the oscillating (?) lights at the crown this week fading from one color to an other color. It looks like a comic book. Which, is fitting. This building is a joke.

Re: Gov't Center Station Rebuild

Accessibility for Hynes was written into the Peebles award for Parcel 13. Construction proposed to start in 2020, IIRC.
