Re: Open Thread

An eye for an eye makes everything alright. That's how the saying goes, right?

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

...or even worse, they may have their car keyed/windows bashed in for parking in a spot that someone else pretended to shovel out for 5 minutes.

Maybe they were the same person. Think about it, man. Have you ever seen F-Line & Whigh in the same place at the same time?

Re: Winthrop Square Garage Being Demolished

Get out of here with that Sanctuary city BS. You know all you're doing is trolling with a comment like that. It has absolutely nothing to do with the topic at hand.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

If Suffolk downs is really the only area offered up in Boston's proposal, then that's a damn shame. It makes me think that Boston honed in on the 100 acre line and said, "welp, Suffolk downs fits the...

Re: The New Office Thread

I HIGHLY doubt that whatever city gets picked will be building the new HQ, or paying for the renovations. Amazon will get a sweet deal on the land (if they build their own) or will get some good tax...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

With $100k+ salaries, they're not going to have to suck it up. Also, when I said that these employees would be more urban-centric, I didn't mean strictly Boston/Cambridge/Somerville. I meant that...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Is it ideal, no. But definitely doable. Stamford to NYC is about the same commute time, and I know plenty of people that do it.

That being said, the demographic that Amazon will (largely) be...

Exactly.

Didn't read the article, because I'm not paying for the Globe anymore (after Henry fired Orsillo), and they finally figured out the incognito loophole. I'm guessing they set up the...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

The more I think about it, the more I'd say not to get to hung up on that 8M SF number. This initial RFP is technically only for "phase 1", which is 500k-1M sf, according to their phase breakdown...

I think SST would be great for Amazon, but there are some hurdles that make it less than a sure shot.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

That's what I was getting at with the 2.5M SF max build-out. The tower itself is only 862,000 SF, with 640k-700k (depending on the source) of office. When I first linked the image of the USPS...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

I do like the idea of SST for Amazon HQ. It is slated to have 704,000 SF of office space (http://www.archboston.org/community/showpost.php?p=292509&postcount=1501), which would be perfect for PH1....
