Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

Why not? $100k a year means you're taking home $5-6k a month.

That pays the rent easily. No car or insurance. It's def. Doable. Even better with a roomie.

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

That's a big market tease.

Aye. It is so much more in the company mixing the chemicals and ensuring there are no adverse (deadly) implications associated with it's use. They are the ones with the labs and the test and the...

What do you mean how this was approved, or how they let this happen?

DDT was a godsend, kids used to chase the truck down the street and dance in the mist.
Asbestos was the bees knees.

Re: Parcel K | Northern Avenue | Seaport

Meh. I meant garbage in terms of exterior materials. and abundance of exposed rooftop mechanicals. I've no doubt the units are just swell. The part the rest of us get to see, is not pretty. I'v...

Re: Parcel K | Northern Avenue | Seaport

There was no way they could age well. They're garbage buildings. They were put up at a time when there was minimal confidence and demand for this area.

This was the building(s) that I think it...

Re: Parcel JK | NorthPoint | Cambridge

Re: Parcel JK | NorthPoint | Cambridge

Not as much density, and I don't think it will be anywhere near the seaports retail.
It'll be nice, and better than the original plan. But overall it'll be underwhelming, and a missed opportunity....

Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

Boston base is very similar but different than NGVD I believe. Not sure why we don't use the national level, but that's what makes us Boston.

Re: Seaport Parcels M1-M2 | Seaport Sq. | Seaport

That is where the "square" will be I guess. Since Seaport Hill went away. The small open area between the L parcels ain't much of a Square.

Re: Proto | 88 Ames Str. - Kendall Sq. | Cambridge

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

I'm hoping for an implosion when they take down the Eastgate tower at MIT.
Haven't gotten to see one live before.

Fingers crossed.

Re: MXD | 145 Broadway/250 Binney | Kendall Square
