Re: Residential Tower | 26 Court St. | Government Center

Ooooooh! Fun! Patronizing the pup.

To your question, city makes money, no shadow problems, few, if any, residential neighbors. As long as the developer isn't that bunch of Bromfield morons for...

Re: Residential Tower | 26 Court St. | Government Center

If a developer saves the shell of the existing building (a la Custom House expansion 100+ yrs ago); if the developer spends some money dressing up Court Square to realize its latent charm; then make...

Re: Open Thread

It is like playing baseball in a Home Depot tin garden shed. The Yankees spring training "Legends Field" in Tampa is better!

Re: Open Thread

I dunno. A factor maybe. Even when Tampa has had decent teams (this year's team is not bad, but has weird pitching) the Tampons won't turn out.

Same deal with Marlins games.

Re: Official City Hall Plaza Proposals

Purely guesswork...not very. They could well have been old fashioned cut and cover.

Re: Worcester Improvements

The Worcester Auditorium is great, although I haven't been inside since November 19, 1975 for Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Review: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolling_Thunder_Revue

Re: Official City Hall Plaza Proposals

Replication makes me nervous! The examples you cite are good ones. Locally, the replica of the Tontine Crescent built in Charlestown turned out ok. But then I think of that hotel in Kenmore...

Re: Temporary Habor Garage discussion thread until project is officially launched

You really have to laugh at the idea of an underground waterfront garage. Unless, of course, the car of the future is James Bond's submersible Lotus Esprit.

This is because its shape is inorganic and artificial,...

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

Like how the antenna on top of the Pru is lit. It looks like a good old fashion dirigible mooring mast.
