Re: Official City Hall Plaza Proposals

Honestly, this really is further evidence that the plaza is not and will continue to not be an environment that draws people in. It's time to take a picture and just start building on the plaza as if...

Re: Idea for fixing the housing shortage

This was actually exactly why I proposed this in the first place. The "cooling market" generally equates to projects not getting the financing they need. Meanwhile renters in the area are seeing...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

I go by tectonic plates. The Azores are mostly on the Eurasian plate with a couple on the north american plate. Cape Verde is 100% on the African plate.

I also consider the Canaries to be in...

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

I agree on the arches, but those never seem to come to fruition. Also I just... really concur on the shape of this thing looking as if it was designed for the neighboring triangle parcel.

Re: Idea for fixing the housing shortage

I've made sure to rebuke local politicians who back nimbyism in regards to residential development. Especially "this isn't a partisan issue, but you are certainly pissing off your constituents who...

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

Re: General Infrastructure

Are we talking about the headhouse? We discussed those at length before, it was a nod to the old headhouse that was intended to be climbed and sat upon.

Well I figured it was Odu masturbating again but he still didn't get the point after the significant derailment and debate that followed this time.

Re: Idea for fixing the housing shortage

Uh, I think Houston and the surrounding area started reconsidering some of those policies after Harvey. (Suburban sprawl was blamed as a contributor to the severity of the flooding) Bad example?

Re: Idea for fixing the housing shortage

No,you build more housing and run to put out the next fires of transit and infrastructure. We don't have a choice at this point, this is what happens when a city decays for decades and is suddenly...

Re: Idea for fixing the housing shortage

So I guess we're back at square one then? How do we convince NIMBYs that current policies are causing people to suffer? Especially the ones who own property and are oblivious to Renter's woes?

Idea for fixing the housing shortage

Now it seems like it would be complicated to pull off and I hope there's a few lawyers here to weigh in on the feasibility:

First part: create a non-profit to develop and hold residential assets. ...

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

I think the moral of the story here is, if that building currently provides low cost and/or subsidized housing, any redevelopment needs to replace that housing on site one for one. If that requires...

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

Ok so I hate to contribute to the derailment here, but for someone who hangs out here you should know by now whats creating the housing crisis. "Gentrification" might be what prices people out of a...

Re: Bartlett Yards | 2565 Washington Street | Roxbury

Yeah, these complaints are only valid when the new units are being marketed as "luxury housing".

Being cheap on appearances is perfectly fine when the objective is to create affordable housing...

Re: Housing a Changing City: Boston 2030

If we built enough housing i'm pretty sure it would be over 800,000 by 2030. The housing shortage itself is suppressing demand.

To be fair I think Bezos himself is ideologically libertarian (not conspiracy theorist right winger) but the employees are so liberal they make Boston residents look conservative.
