Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

It’s a shame they’re not breaking up the super block which they could have done by cutting a real road between chardon and sudbury

Re: MXD | 145 Broadway/250 Binney | Kendall Square

Good luck convincing others to bike in the snow. I did it for two years, it sucks, and it’s NOT reasonable to EXPECT people to do that when we live in an era of technology. Maybe you’d like to...

Re: General Boston Discussion.

Re: MXD | 145 Broadway/250 Binney | Kendall Square

Bigpicture, thank you for your perspective - but I’m not advocating making Kendall auto-centric. And I recognize that plenty of people are willing to make concessions to work there (I don’t know of...

Re: MXD | 145 Broadway/250 Binney | Kendall Square

No. What people are saying upthread is that it would have been much better to plan ahead, and barring that, to recognize that the transportation infrastructure is completely overwhelmed in this...

Re: MXD | 145 Broadway/250 Binney | Kendall Square

Wow if the sister tower is even taller, that’s cool - I know the pictures on here don’t make it look very big, but from Mass General across the river, the current one already stands out as a fair...

Re: Hotel Project (Current Shell Station) | 1241 Boylston St | Fenway

It’s pissing into the wind it with you, but nonetheless let’s just point out the fact that of all the neighborhoods, Fenway has a lot of classic old Boston architecture yet has allowed very...

Re: Brookline Developments

Not trying be a dick... it’s harvard street though. Ave = Allston.

Re: North Washington St Bridge

I sure hope this “architectural trellis” is not pre-approved, too. Looks like a cheap knockoff of the Calatrava WTC station. Which is kinda cool looking, but also kind of pointless...

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

Re: Beth Israel Patient Building | West Campus | Longwood

It’s a great project because without even looking at the detailed plans it means they’re finally expanding their ED which is much needed. It also will likely release some pressure on some of the...

Re: UMass Boston Residence Hall 1 | Columbia Point | Dorchester

Well, we can debate the finer points, if you want, but I think it’s obvious what I meant:
