Re: Midtown Hotel redevelopment | 220 Huntington Avenue | Back Bay

This will likely be a NIMBY war to remember.

Re: Julie Hall | Brookline Ave | Emanuel College | Fenway

692 student capacity. The original proposal was for about 450 students. The building looked too large for only 450 students.

Still a lot of work to do for an August opening.

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

In an attempt to get back on topic, when will this building on Huntington Ave. start construction?

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

Caracas, Venezuela did this. Don't think it worked out too well for them.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

OOPS! I knew that. Skipped a zero. Seems like an outrageous price for that sliver of land.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

I heard that the Punter's/Pizza building and the two brownstones will be redeveloped as an academic building (or a mixed use building) with a flatiron design. Whether there is a pub on the first...

Re: Chelsea

What is your opinion of urban development in Caracas? No corporate parasites there.

Re: Chelsea

In the old days in Chelsea you could have obtained approval for about $100,000 split generously among the mayor and aldermen. But back then no one wanted to build in Chelsea.

Re: Kenmore Square North

In the 1920's BU purchased the land for the Charles River campus. They owned the land down to the river's edge. In the 1930's as campus construction began the state took half the land by eminent...

BU sold off its 50% ownership in the Hotel Commonwealth a few years ago.

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

In addition to out of state and internationals there are MA students from beyond 495 who otherwise may have attended Amherst, Dartmouth or Lowell if no on campus housing was available.

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

And the locals are pretty much excluded from Northeastern today due to academic qualifications and/or cost. A beautiful campus for out of staters and internationals.

It will be a win-lose...

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

The key word is "few". International and out of state students who are denied at the more selective colleges and want to attend college in Boston will gravitate to UMB and UMB will welcome their...

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

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

That's why I said "most' locals.

UMass Boston was created to serve metro Boston students on the cheap. Now it wants to attract out of staters who are rejected by NU, BU and BC or can't afford...

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

Northeastern is no longer a local college. 97% of freshmen live on campus. Most locals avoid Northeastern now in favor of UMass Boston due to cost, stats or not wanting to feel like an outsider.

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

UMass Boston was the last Boston area college where a commuter student didn't feel like an outsider. Shame.
