Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

Coming along but the top floor build out has seemed slower than usual to me (I can see it from my apt window). I did see a welder out there on a recent weeknight at 11 pm so .. something's happening...

Re: Proposed But Never Built

From the City of Boston Archives Flickr page. Proposed but not built, waterfront edition.

Re: Flickr Finds

Perhaps shutting down Storrow Drive inbound but leaving outbound would be an alternative? Outbound can be used by commuters at rush hour.

Having a green line extension seems somewhat logical and...

Re: Open Thread

Surely someone in Hollywood has proposed Meryl Streep as Jane Jacobs in an anti-Robert Moses movie, no?

Re: Old Boston Edison Plant | Summer St | South Boston

This is one of the primary problems with the new tax proposal by the District 1 city councilor. She says that "owner-occupants" will be exempt from paying 6% on any sale.

How do you track that in...

Re: Platform screen doors.

Re: Microsoft's $500 million affordable housing fund

The idea this would "stimulate" more housing is worth imagining.

On its own, yes, it's ridiculously small .. $500 million is 1,500 housing units (but it's not $500 million b/c half (?) is going to...

Re: The New Retail Thread

We're on D Street so in-between Seaport and South Boston, we use Peapods for orders and Foodies on West Broadway a couple times a week plus take-out.

We don't really eat a lot of food.
