Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

That's a very weak argument. Unless the road caused that truck to flip over, it's not a valid comparison. This is another major failure by the MBTA and one that will continue to shake people's...

Re: Motor Mart Tower | 201 Stuart Str. | Park Sq | Boston

Mostly glass, so it looks nice and will hold up very well in the long run.

Too bad this thing isn't going to be 150-175 feet taller.

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

The Revs are in the midst of a bad season, so it's not terribly surprising their attendance is down vs. last year. However, they're still either beating or on par with other cities that have soccer...

Re: Riverside Station development

This project kind of highlights what a wise man once said:

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

Some nice visualizations of how things might look.

It's still insane that from concept to completion may very well take 13 plus years.

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

This is a great thing - ridership seeing a big uptick. Massport has been smart by making the service a lot more attractive.

I'd be curious to see if they expand the service to other suburban...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

They should. Bars and restaurants should be able to serve alcohol until 3:00 am and have a 3:30 am closing time, that way people can finish their drinks and have time to trickle out of the bar.

Unsurprisingly, Mayor Walsh is not a fan of the proposal to allow the casino to serve booze until 4 am.

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

I don't know how much space is there, but why not put the stadium on top of the Pike? The parcel from West Station to Cambridge Street perhaps?
