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

Worth mentioning that the parking lot MassDOT would have to take in order to extend Malvern north, at 76 Ashford Street (http://app01.cityofboston.gov/ParcelViewer/?pid=2100417000), is the ONLY...

Re: Kenmore Square North

The line about marathon runners is mine, so I'm coming back in to say "no, not really seriously." More of a statement of fact than idolatry to note that on that one day in April, thousands of runners...

Re: Kenmore Square North

If they build 8 stories on that corner, and unless the setback is improbably deep, it seems like points west (i.e. the marathoners' view coming up Beacon Street) would lose their line of sight to the...

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

Also note that any development of those Children's parcels will be complicated by the fact that the Green Line tunnel between Kenmore and Fenway runs underneath them, in a more or less diagonal line...

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

Mild correction: MassDOT owns that parcel, and the Red Sox are a taxpaying lessee for their use of the parcel for gameday parking. Not sure how MASCO fits into the mix, but I'm pretty sure they use...

Re: BU Development Thread

Don't forget that Wheelock also owns this building (https://goo.gl/maps/A28yNwH6vWu) on the Longwood Mall and has a president's residence and some other housing nearby on Kent Street. Wheelock put...

Re: The New Retail Thread

Brookline Bank is moving a few doors down to the corner space in the S.S. Pierce building in Coolidge Corner (vacated by Walgreens in 2015). Posters in the door as of today call for a Spring 2017...

Re: 8-10 Waldo Street Coolidge Corner Brookline

Relevant to the discussion, though better suited for another thread if more information is available: this is not the only 40B proposal for Coolidge Corner that would go tall. Back in August, the Tab...

Re: 8-10 Waldo Street Coolidge Corner Brookline

The 40b question deserves some serious coverage, too. Haven't they been hovering at 9 percent for a couple years now with a large volume of proposals in the pipeline? Don't know the details of how...

Re: 8-10 Waldo Street Coolidge Corner Brookline

Lololol it's horrible. Tell you what though, whatever happens here, if it goes tall it'll be bad, guaranteed. Everything in Brookline taller than Pelham Hall (foreground right in the render) is...

Re: Kenmore Sq

Some kind of a co-op? It shows a single owner on city assessing but there are units for sale on the real estate websites. I was curious enough to look it up because back in the day I almost got to...

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

This guy drives me up a wall. At least finally he invited some big kids to sit at the table with him. If a legitimate developer is saying that this phasing is the way it has to go, then it's easier...

Re: Commonwealth Avenue Improvement Project

Does anyone know where to access a fuller set of plans? Particularly curious to know whether they plan to add a legal pedestrian street crossing at Naples Rd. just inbound from Packard's Corner.

Re: Unconventional sites for housing the teeming hordes

Thread title should be "teeming hordes" and not "teeming hoards," which more closely (though not quite grammatically) depicts a survivalist's fallout shelter bursting at the seams with canned goods....
