Re: The New Office Thread

That's what happens when a biotech pulls a late stage trial.

Re: Volpe Transportation Center Development | Kendall Sq | Cambridge

it could work, but you'd also probably be looking at least $50-75/ft in tenant improvement costs.

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

I'm with ya BB. The theater appears fine but what they doing to the bleachers merits discussion. Maybe it is simple nostalgia, but I don't think it's controversial because a strong argument can be...

Re: Rex Sox Theater [12-28 Lansdowne St]

What do you mean by Yawkey? The former Yawkey Way is now Jersey St and that is on the opposite side of the photo above, with not much happening when the Sox are not playing. The image shows the...

Re: Crazy Airport Pitches

True, but the state owns the property right of way to divide to the airport. After the airport (rt 202/122), the road gets pretty dicey. They didn't do it when they put in the bollards based solely...

Re: Crazy Airport Pitches

Using the word greenfield, reminded me of something.

I flew in and out of Dulles a while ago and noticed (what I think is new) rail going straight down the middle of the highway. I recall maybe...

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

You have to watch out for those filthy creatures. Those fields must be fenced in. The last thing you need is professional athletes getting bit by a tick and developing lyme disease.

Re: Boston Freedom Wheel | Long Wharf? | Waterfront

Do you have kids and if so, do you travel with them?

Off the top of my head, we've rode them in Seattle, London, Vienna, Chicago, DC, LA (santa monica), Dallas. Sure it's a tourist trap, but it's...

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

Reading between the lines, it looks like post-acquisition redundancy measures, i.e. getting rid of the deadwood.

Re: One Congress | West End

It's possible too that their other lease contained pricing options that were way too expensive and the landlord wouldn't budge. A company I worked for was in a similar situation with a long term...

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

In looking at who this thoery benefits, this is spot on. All this talk of "frivolous" trips is SJW / Agenda 21 BS, IMO. Sane people do not foray onto Storrow or the Pike simply to go cruising around....
