Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Re: 111 Federal St. | Formerly Trans National Place (Winthrop Square) Part 2

After having a long hiatus from the board, I'm quite impressed with the flurry of activity and building in Boston.

I have a question about these proposals for the board. I notice that a number of...

Re: 45 Province St

Aren't bricks pre-fabricated?

It's not so much the materials that are used that bothers me too much. It's the quality of workmanship that goes into the facade itself. Terracotta is a nice...

Re: Lofts Avana

I don't agree with this. Yuppie only means young, economically mobile professionals with a lot of disposable income. I don't think that ethnicity matters.

The name "Lofts Avana" sounds so pretentious.

Re: Copley Place plan calls for condo tower

Reading some of the comments on Boston.com, I'm really impressed with the community's reaction to this project. Makes me think this has a good chance of being built without any height reductions.

Re: Shreve, Crump & Low bldng may be replaced w/ new develop

Itchy, I think many on this site are in favor for preservation, I am one of those that are strongly against tearing this building down. Could I nominate you as the "leader" for archboston's fight...

Re: New BU Tower

Wasn't this due to a collapse of one of the spires, or insufficient funds?

Re: Cape Wind Farm

It's just a matter of time before this gets built. NIMBYs may squawk now, but eventually they won't be able to fight the growing need for clean renewable energy. Nantucket Sound is one of the best...

Re: Shreve, Crump & Low bldng may be replaced w/ new develop

^To your point, I should also add a few other comments by Ed Gordon. Regarding Dainty Dot, he launched into a diatribe and railed against the height of the proposal, siting how inappropriate it was...

Re: Cambridge Developments

Re: The Economics of Building in Boston, Part 2

^I believe the major tenant you're talking about is Wellington Management Co. They will probably fill up the whole building (something tells me they're following in SSgA's footsteps...)

Re: Trans National Place (Winthrop Square) Part 2

Tall buildings do not make a city. Look at Charlotte. Tall buildings, empty streets.

Do you really think that 1000 foot plus buildings matter to the average person? I was at Pub trivia last...
