Re: Logan Flight Additions

Oh how I wish City could accommodate an A321. I'd gladly pay the premium to avoid Heathrow Express, Picadilly Line, or the M4....or the shit hole that is Gatwick.

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

Re: Boston Bombing Memorial | Boylston St | Back Bay

We also trivialise it with movies and cheap retrospectives. Is anyone still buying a ‘Boston Strong’ T-shirt still being hawked at Quincy Market or Logan gift shops? Ask someone in Parkland or...

Re: Boston Bombing Memorial | Boylston St | Back Bay

Mixed thoughts on this...but I do look forward to it's addition to Boylston Street. We no longer do equestrian statues or Gothic water fountains, so esoteric it has to be. And it's more than a...

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

LOL..

By the time it's rising, it will already be pretty well surrounded by other new construction (which is kind of amazing if you think about it). The south will be blocked by the residential...

And Copa, whilst not technically South America by mere miles, adds the 1-2 dailies to PTY serving similar markets as Avianca.

Interesting thoughts on Metabolist...

I'll be glad when it is gone, the replacement buildings are just gravy.

Re: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

Are you saying it needs your beloved 'Bostonification'? :D :D :D

Hardly PC garbage at all. It adds a modern artistic vocabulary to the Common, just as the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial does for its...

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

Well that's the crux of it, isn't it? Aside from some pastiche Federalist po-mo fantasy, what would the BPA not find blasphemous? I'd love to sit in and watch a design charette to see what happens...

Re: Rose Kennedy Greenway

The choice was do nothing and let what had been interior party wall exposed for 50 years crumble on to the sidewalk, or let a developer try to make it work..

Perfect no, but the money was spent...

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

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

There are 24-25 above where the hotel roofline, so another 7 or so. I'd guestimate it will top out about where the top of the concrete pump is, in the most recent pics.
