Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

John Harrington, Frank McCourt and Stephen Karp in a circa-2001 AIM chatroom called "Crazy Fenway Park Pitches" are all very interested in this discussion. Dan Shaughnessy likes the pun in that title...

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

You're not wrong that there are many many RF corner seats that are far far worse than the upper bleachers in terms of field view, but at least you can leave those seats in between innings and access...

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

I went long on my thoughts on this project as it impacts Fenway Park here (http://www.archboston.org/community/showpost.php?p=331404&postcount=10), before we got to see what they planned to do on the...

Re: 8-10 Waldo Street | Coolidge Corner | Brookline

^By way of a little further background/refresher, the original proposal was a 40B for a 21-story all-glass tower and more than 300 units (and no hotel component). If I understand everything...

Re: 8-10 Waldo Street | Coolidge Corner | Brookline

This is still a live proposal, and quite a few changes have been made since this thread was last live. Equilibria's top link above includes some summary data on the proposal as of December '18: one...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

What is really nice is that they did write up all of the routes, including the 66 with its EIGHT stops per mile. This is a solid knowledge base upon which to build.

Re: BU Development Thread

The PRC is/was at 832 Comm, next to the new theater (if I'm reading the campus map right). 910 is this guy (https://goo.gl/maps/a8BmiNUkdev) in between CVS and Sunset Cantina in front of the St. Paul...

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

Re: Fenway Area Redevelopment

Re: Comm Ave Bridge Replacement.

OK gang, let's lay off already. If you spend time here often, you shouldn't find these posts out of character and you should appreciate that the poster is making a genuine effort to spark discussion.

Re: BU Development Thread

Good find, thanks! I wonder how they plan to work that new BU shuttle stop into their existing network. It seems pretty well out of the way of the existing loop between the CRC and the South End.

Re: BU Development Thread

So far the only discernible plan has been to store a huge pile of mulch at the end of Blandford by the Pike. I get it, I guess -- not many places on that campus to store mulch, so why not buy a city...

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

Encouraging in some respects. But not exactly a reset of the kind that yielded results for GLX, at least not yet. Pollack dropped one paragraph into this that hopefully receives strong pushback,...
