Personally. The tower lighting is about as classy and somewhat understated as could be...

Re: North-South Rail Link

Even with students gone, I'm gonna call shenanigans on that blurry memory.
7am has been crap for much longer than a year.

That's up there with the rocketman misremembering.

Re: Cambridge Crossing (NorthPoint) | East Cambridge/Charlestown | Cambridge/Boston

I'm in the appreciation camp as well. Parcel G building is not under construction tho. Site prep is underway. Believe sheet piles are for site retention walls at this point, not foundation. Permits...

Re: UMass Boston to Offer Student Housing in 2018

My understanding is that UMB has maximized it's debt, and could not afford to build these without going the PPP route (private/public/partnership). That was from the horses mouth.

Re: Cambridge Crossing (NorthPoint) | East Cambridge/Charlestown | Cambridge/Boston

If what I'm hearing is true, this area will be king of the cranes later this year.
Could be as many as 6 or more sites under construction this year.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Umm duh!

Look at the shrinking of mass transit since 1949, and the growth of our interstates, suburbs, And the auto industry.

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

I'll offer up a little bit here, because I agree with fattony in that all buildings are value engineered from the get go. They all start with a budget and a desired outcome. The architect is then...

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

It kind of always has been the lynchpin. Adding 900 units, all that retail, etc.
