Re: Pierce Boston (née The Point )| Boylston St/Brookline Av | Fenway

I noticed a new tower going up (bright orange safety gratings on each floor, tower crane, ~3-4 floors so far) across the Muddy River green way from this project in the vicinity of Emmanuel College....

Re: Seaport Transportation

This makes no sense. Just look at the GMaps imagery of the line. It has several grade crossings. How is that going to work with a 3rd rail? Is this going to cost $32M b/c they are going to...

Re: Amazon wants office space downtown.

I'm a software engineer. I got emailed from 4 different Amazon recruiters about the Boston jobs this week. I think they want to hire a lot.

As an engineering manager, I can attest it's hard to...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Begin the Boston A380 era! I know it's not a new route, but Logan now has all pretty much all the hardware in the sky, in scheduled service. Next whale is BA 239 on Sunday evening. Catch it heading...

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

Only two folks showed up to photograph EK237's arrival. When BA 239 head back on Monday we might have more folks out.

Boston is now an A380 city! We've been waiting for so long. And to think...

Re: Skanska Fenway Project (Burger King) | 1350 Boylston Street | Fenway

At this point, it's only a few more years until the Tasty Burger, Verb, and Star Market parcels get turned into towers as well, completing the transformation of Boylston Street.

Re: Leverett Circle Pedestrian Bridge

I'm a runner. I've run 10K miles around Boston and the Charles. I've gone through Leverett circle on the old, hideous footbridge, and loved it when they tore it down. I've run through that current...

Re: Casey Overpass

Are they doing any sort of blasting? Last night between 11p and midnight I heard at least 4 very loud booms from the site, and I live a mile away. I wouldn't think they'd be doing that, or even...

Re: MBTA & Regular Driving May Be Shut Down During Coming Snowstorm!

Watching the evening news and rather aghast to see aerial views of dozens and dozens of men manually digging out what appear to be unplowed tracks. I understand manually digging out the third rail,...

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

Planes certainly can bank. Knock out an engine on takeoff in MTOW conditions on a hot day and they climb much more slowly. Bank and you climb even slower. If we had 700ft towers in South Boston and...

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

You do understand that an engine out at V2 by definition will only get you to clear the runway threshold by 35 feet, right? So when you're departing runway 27 from Logan and have a flameout, and...
