Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

I can't access this place from work anymore, it loads as a blank page with just the archboston banner. Something is not jiving with the security settings and I think it's the ads. Oh well. But can...

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Odurandina's idea of what the wealthy do with their money is very much a poor man's idea of what the wealthy do with their money. I'm also pretty sure if he has money he spends it all on blow and...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

This. It represents a lot of things that make my skin crawl. It also wastes water in dry states, and is a complete waste of land in a place like this.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

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

I wasn't actually dissing the rooms. It actually has some appeal to me, I'm just saying they're keeping prices down by using space efficiently.

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

I think you need to do some research on what the citizenM brand is and how big the rooms are. The prices are on the high end for rooms the size of walk-in closets.

Re: P&G close to deal for Fort Point land next to GE headquarters

Dude, the FAA max is only 300' here. And from what I can tell, nothing has been proposed yet for us to tell whether or not they are going to that max. 300' doesn't tend to meet much opposition when...

Re: Housing a Changing City: Boston 2030

Ummm. Everyone seems to be assuming jobs only happen in Boston. Here in Portsmouth and across the river in Kittery there's more jobs than people. It's not a phenomenon exclusive to Boston.
