Re: The Boston "what if" thread

A Raytheon+UTC headquarters would be a perfect fit for Cambridge Crossing, wouldn't surprise me at all if they end up there. Slightly lower rents, proximity to Kendall, transit/highway access,...

Re: Dorm Tower @ Emerson College | 1-3 Boylston Place | Downtown

Huh that's funny, Emerson is near top on my list of most loved higher education institutions in Boston.

Their investments in the Theater District have been transformational and priceless. The...

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

Fascinating outcome to this whole saga. What's your connection to Boston?

Re: Northern Avenue Bridge Fort Point Channel

Umm ok whether or not you think it's worth the money is an entirely different argument.

The fact remains that point-to-point the Northern Ave. bridge would offer the shortest walking route from...

Re: Northern Avenue Bridge Fort Point Channel

Well that's wrong. If you get out of the T at Dewey Sq. and work at Vertex, Goodwin Proctor, the ICA, BCG, Cengage, or MassMutual, to name a few, a bridge at Northern Avenue would in fact be your...

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Well it's a much nicer tower than the Avalon North Station, which for some reason was strangely well-received on this forum despite being Kensington-level dull on one of the city's most prominent...

Re: The New Office Thread

True. And for that reason I was happy when CVS-owned Aetna decided to keep their HQ in Hartford. I want to see old New England cities do well.

Once we get into Fairfield County though all bets...

Re: The New Office Thread

Or why not just leave them in RI? New England is a regional economy, stealing Hasbro or CVS from RI is just a larger scale version of Boston trying to steal companies from Cambridge.

If RI's...

Re: How does Boston's urbanism compare?

I was just in Seattle a couple of weeks ago and made my way down to Portland for the first time on a day trip. Really surprised by that city. It felt much more urban than Seattle, despite obviously...

Re: Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

Clearly I'm in the minority here but I think what we're getting at Pier 4 is much better than that pastel Tampa schtick from the original renderings. The condo part as built is a nice break from the...

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

Huge win for Boston. NY has arguably already overtaken us as the East Coast's main tech hub, and having Amazon HQ2 there would've been the point of no return. This way, the planned 25,000 jobs in NY...

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

In addition to what Equilibria said, I believe the plan is to relocate the ferry terminal for downtown/Hingham/Hull/(new Seaport route?), which should also make the ferry a much more attractive...

Re: Worcester Improvements

True, the only "incredible" thing about this development is that they demolished that gorgeous church on the corner. I guess it wasn't bland enough to fit in with everything else.

Re: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

I could see China Airlines/EVA Air making a run at BOS-Taipei or China Southern trying BOS-Guangzhou but that's about it for East Asia.
