Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

That's not a free transfer though.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I would prefer that we had just torn down elevated I-93 and replaced it with nothing.

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

I do like this "close SFR for a year during construction and see what happens" approach. I think people will indeed really enjoy it.

One question: where do you start and stop the closure (which...

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

Advocates have been in a tough position of "do we push for things that are already tough for MassDOT to say yes to but would result in a pretty good end result" or "do we push for things that we have...

Re: Biking in Boston

I love the new separated bike lanes through the Casey Arborway project, but I think they really screwed up the transitions at the intersections. Instead of keeping peds and bikes separate with clear...

Re: The New Retail Thread

Yet their highest grossing store per square foot is the one on Boylston St in Back Bay, which has ZERO on-site parking.

Re: Biking in Boston

Most dangerous thing about biking in winter in Boston? When the roads have been poorly plowed, the temperature has dropped, and the remaining uneven bits of snow on the road have frozen, creating a...

Re: The Boulevard (née The Times/Littlest Bar) | 110 Broad St | Downtown

The bottom two floors are a total fail. I generally like the rest of the building though, although it does kind of give a big FU to the Littlest Bar.

Re: The New Retail Thread

OMG yes. The Canada Goose craze is so ridiculous. People actually line up to get into the store at the Pru on weekends, to pay $800+ for a winter coat. It's nuts.

Re: General Infrastructure

I think the biggest mistake MassDOT made here was introducing a traffic signal where there was none before. The free-for-all mixing zone where cars from all directions just had to negotiate their way...

Re: Bones of Boston

Interesting that you mention Meeting House Hill. I'm currently reading a book about the development of Dorchester (and Roxbury) in the late 1800s, and this was mentioned as a thriving neighborhood at...

Re: Official City Hall Plaza Proposals

We had a really bad cold spell last year. When the weather was decent, it seems like it was well attended. When it was bone chillingly cold, not so much.

Is there any talk of creating dedicated bus lanes for accessing the airport terminals at all?

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

Those ground floors demonstrate what minimum parking requirements looks like. Also, I'd do a significant road diet to reduce the amount of pavement, widen the sidewalks, and add street trees along...

Re: North-South Rail Link

If the North-South rail link happened, is there any chance that the Downeaster would be rolled into an extended Northeast Regional?

To the best of my knowledge, Mayor Walsh trashed the Boston Bike Network Plan.

Re: Fort Point

Totally agree with FK4. A bike route is generally only as good as its weakest link. And right now, the protected lanes and striped bike lanes don't really connect to each other in key places....

Re: Jamaica Plain Infill

I must say, most of that infill in the photos above looks quite nice! No crazy mis-mash of materials. No asymmetric windows. Not too much VEing. No ugly driveways or parking structures.

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 665 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

This building just screams "Look at me! I'm different!" for no good reason. I know it's possible to make something that is both modern and that blends in with its neighbors. This is not it.

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

150 W Broadway looks really good!

On a lot of those photos, the garage doors make me very sad. The ground floors are mainly parking in those buildings :-(
