Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

True; South Station deserves near billing with DC and 30th St for waiting.

Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

LA; do you like being seated 500' from your stairway? I'm not digging the non-existent/crap restaurants. Nothing shockingly bad. But, by comparison Amtrak stations back East offer better food.

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