Re: Emerson College - Little Building Addition + Renovation | 80 Boylston St | Downto

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

Oh, yes. Please. I'm honestly surprised they haven't already- it's a very useful location and it looks like they could do it pretty easily from my admittedly layman perspective

Re: MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

I do think there's a gradient here... but I also think it's very (read: too) subtle.

Re: Boston Bombing Memorial | Boylston St | Back Bay

I think that it's important to keep in mind that these memorials were designed with careful and significant insight from the victims' families. While they are not the only people affected by that...

Re: Goddard House | 201 S. Huntington | Jamacia Plain

I do like the bronze building. The metallic shingles going up on the other are much more coppery and clash horribly with the existing facade. I'm hoping there will be some street trees or other...

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

900 feet from the western mouth of the Pru tunnel brings us almost exactly to the western boundary of Parcel 12, per Google Maps, so I would think so.

I think you're talking about bostonbred (http://www.archboston.org/community/member.php?u=1146)? He's always been an occasional poster, but you're right that it's been a while.

Re: Crossroads at Kenmore | 560 Commonwealth Ave | Kenmore Square

Re: Regional Rail (including North-South Rail Link)

My understanding is that it's important to maintain the D for the Green Line because the Riverside yard is absolutely necessary for the entire GL system.

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

Provided there's no changes here, I think that a decent facade analogue is rising in Lower Manhattan at 25 Park Row. Just to give an idea of what we might see.

Re: Downtown Crossing

I love the paint job but I'm also just glad to see the building taken care of- it's one of only 4 cast-iron buildings in the city.
