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

Let's be honest. If the old West End was kept intact, you can bet the one person calling for it to be demolished for high-rises would be odurandina. If he was at the helm of Boston's development in...

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

Another tower where the colossal order has no business being there. Boston is beyond help. It is the new horizontal stripe.

I also want to add that the colossal order should only be at the street...

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

Sorry I misread that. That being said, if the above scenario occurs, I do believe the conversion of affordable housing to faux luxury condos will slow. Of course, it will change when the market...

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

The thing is, it isn't easy to build luxury towers in downtown especially in Boston where developers are normally restricted to a reputable few. The access to the tower market is very restricted. To...

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

Luxury market is cooling down whereas the middle-income market remains hot. Unfortunately, Equity, like all developers, are not going to convert their plans to build middle-income housing and this is...

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

When do they announce the approval? I want to see the disappointed look in the oppositions' faces.

Re: Garden Garage Towers (Basketball City) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

I think it's a pretty low blow what Paul Barrett did though and he should be fired from Equity for that, especially if the project fails to get off the ground.

Re: Garden Garage Towers (Basketball City) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

Re: Garden Garage Towers (New West End building)
