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

That would be the test. If he likes it then you know it's awful.

Re: Dorchester Avenue Redevelopment | South Boston

The thread titled "Bayside Expo Center Redevelopment" would seem logical.

Then where would you suggest they live and how should it be paid for?

Re: Boston and surrounding areas housing crisis

Then maybe they should work harder or do as you said and keep their pants on. If you're any indication, I'm going to start calling the working class the complaining class.

Re: Boston and surrounding areas housing crisis

Why should a "working class" individual or family be able to afford a multi-unit investment property?

Re: The New Retail Thread

A drab research building filled with a few hundred of the most boring people you'll ever meet. Just a hunch.

Re: Kenmore Square North

I wonder how much they'll have to VE the remaining development if the corner building has to be saved.

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

Tallest outside of NYC within North America. Tall building don't make for great cities in and of themselves. Boston was a cesspool in the 1960s. A hundred Prudential Towers wouldn't have changed...

Re: 40 Trinity Place | 426 Stuart Street | Back Bay

I would assume that much of that time was devoted to lining up a hotel operator. Although they've spun it favorably I really can't imagine Raffles was their first, second or third choice.

Re: Ollie | 217 Albany st | South Boston

Perhaps that's all the market can handle, at least profitably. Maybe they decided it wasn't financially worth fighting for extra height.

Re: Ollie | 217 Albany st | South Boston

A minor correction for the title if you can still change it ... South End, not South Boston.

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

Where would you put them? Name a few buildings that are expendable and where the surroundings would provide the appropriate context for a supertall.

He's useless. If he gave the slightest hint of a damn he'd have taken two minutes to chime in with a one line apology and post mortem on why the site was down last week.

Looks like it should be part of the facade for one of those McDonald's play areas. Cheap cheap cheap.

Re: Rio Grande (née Dudley Square Residential Tower) | Washington St. | Roxbury

Jamaica is supposedly one of the most anti-gay places in the non-Muslim world so that's probably what a lot of people would see with the flag crown.

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

Impugning and defaming the character and motivations of one of Boston's most generous philanthropists probably isn't going to win your side much support in this fight.

Re: Midtown Hotel redevelopment | 220 Huntington Avenue | Back Bay

The land's too valuable for student housing and St Botolph street residents will fight anything taller tooth and nail.

Re: MassMutual | 10 Fan Pier Blvd | Fan Pier Parcel E | Seaport

Forgot about the Seaport Hotel. In my opinion, equivalent to, maybe slightly better than the Renaissance but neither can be compared to the Envoy as they're such different types of properties...
