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: BU Development Thread

Not sure if this was mentioned elsewhere, but the BU bookstore is moving to 910 Commonwealth Ave. Source: their contractors are starting to pull permits that are showing up on Brookline's website....

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

I'm fascinated by this proposal for what it is and how it interacts with the ballpark and neighborhood, and would greatly appreciate it if the group used this thread to discuss the proposal rather...

Re: Fenway Area Redevelopment

I didn't realize that they got joint development rights with Rosenthal all the way to Parcel 10. That's a straight line to Charlesgate East! Will never be decked all the way there in any of our...

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

^Thanks, that's what I was looking at, but right now I only see that they have the Family Theatre building in their directory, and then only by searching for it. None of the other Riverway buildings...

Re: BU Development Thread

No, this is Brookline too. Everything on the south side of Comm. Ave. starting at #730 (the former Radio Shack) and going to #1050 (the new Landry's location) is in Brookline, and then the town line...

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

Decking steel has been installed over the inbound Yawkey platform. This extends west to the stairs at Beacon Street and east to the station's elevator towers.

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

Not to simplify things in a project that defies simplicity, but the exact land in question will either be a railyard under construction as a highway, or a completed highway (dispensing with the...

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,...

Re: The New Retail Thread

^ Brookline Bank slid down a few doors to take the bulk of the Walgreens space, such that their old space on Beacon is now vacant instead. But it's not all bank news in the area, thankfully. The...

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

This project fills me with optimism for what might be possible elsewhere in the city. The cap looks like something a 1950's graphic artist would have drawn in response to a "Boston in the year 2000"...

Re: TransitMatters Regional Rail Plan

To be clear, the Foxborough flourish is from Scalziand. I think TransitMatters would send the trains up the Providence line - which makes sense if this is a relatively cost-controlled proposal,...

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

Re: 2/28/18: Thank You TransitMatters for a Bold and Practical Vision

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

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...
