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

The contrarian in me wants to pipe up and say that the garage is not the worst thing to happen to this city. It's cool in a metabolist sort of way--reminds me of walking under the building that rings...

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

I always assumed they had to keep re-opening them to avoid striking last-second passengers. Either way the solution is, if you have to sprint to make it you should probably just wait for the next one.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

It doesn't help that people keep running through them as they close, causing shock to the mechanisms. Last week I was on a train where someone ran through and jammed the door as it was closing. One...

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Rover is correct. All of our tower dreams will come to pass; the question is whether any of us will be around to see them. The argument over height doesn't make a ton of sense to me because it's...

Re: The Whitney Hotel (née John Jeffries House) | 142-170 Charles Street | Beacon Hil

Really sharp work here. The pointing is a little prominent for my taste but this is a huge win.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Wellington lot they check a couple of times a day and transit police sweep once or twice a week (I've seen actual tickets for more general violations like expired inspection stickers) but the...

Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

Yes but will you like the brown? Obviously not as intense of a condition but the walls of a certain central artery tunnel come to mind...

Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

I'm here to nitpick: SSX and NSRL are both necessary and one cannot replace the other.

Anyway, tower is nothing special but build it anyway.

Re: Silver Line to Chelsea

I also recall F-Line explaining a while back why a spur of the OL won't work out very well. I'll leave them to fill in the details but what I remember, the RL as the closest analogue happens to have...

Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

The white here gives me the feeling that there's wrapping paper over the paneling. I don't think I hate it but it feels a little off right now. I'm sure it'll grow on me.

Also like to congratulate...

Re: Charlie Card/MBTA Fare Replacement system

This would be a huge security risk so I can't see a company allowing this. If you could tap without authorization by the device owner you could initiate a number of harmful interactions, like...

Re: Charlie Card/MBTA Fare Replacement system

Not a direct answer to your question but I believe the NFC framework at least for android allows for interactions when the phone is unlocked, without requiring a further unlock, depending on the type...

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

That's a wild generalization and overstatement, c'mon. I hate what Wal-mart represents as much as any orthodox New Englander and I express this by never shopping there. You don't have to make stuff...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

I read this as "I must get myself an A380", as if it were a used car you could pick up once the airlines eat the depreciation hit. No tire-kickers please, I know what I got.

Re: Rose Kennedy Greenway

All other things remaining the same, I'd be interested to see how that loads up traffic at other points of access to the downtown area.

Coming in from the north I'd expect to see traffic shifted...

Re: BGI Office Tower (Massport Parcel A2) | 401 Congress Street | Seaport

Van, how is that analogous? None of the places being floated are as far/hard to get to from Downtown as Staten Island is to the Battery. And it's not a full development--a wheel and some landscaping...
