Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

362-64 W Broadway is some sweet modernism (although it looks like there will be significant VE) and 191 Condor Street East Boston is nice too.

Re: Parcel 9 - The Greenway

Now this is a hotel. It would have better complemented Blackstone by contrasting it instead of the mousey homage to Route 128 that is going up.

Re: Boston (née New Brighton) Landing | New Balance Complex | Brighton

The struts are a strong gesture that add a lot of interest. The roof mechanical box though is poorly done and doesn't tie in to the building at all.

Re: Somerville Developments

Union has a loooong way to go but yes it certainly could be quite the place. Been to Bow Market. It's a bit boutiquey for anything I would want but I'm sure it will work out. Doubtless though the...

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

The original 101 was perfectly fine, if unremarkable. Ruined by that awful PoMo makeover.

Re: Seaport Memorial Park | Parcel F@Seaport Sq. | Seaport

This board has only 2 gears. It's either engaged outright in anti-white racism (whether from whites or non-white racists) or is just coasting until the next round of anti-white racism.

Re: MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

Looking forward to this tower, it kicks mediocrity hard in the butt.
A crime that Eastgate is coming down.

Re: Indianapolis, a Bike Haven City

Well seems they're making a real effort but...the streets are so empty. Where is everyone?
Nice canal but there wasn't a single coffeeshop, bar or restaurant along it. Overall the street level...

Re: Dorchester Developments

This is literally across from Savin Hill station, yes? The density should have been more ambitious for this location.

Re: Six West Broadway Hotel |South Boston

The cohesive simplicity of this is a welcome relief from the plague of "one building-multiple facades" going up everywhere.

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

Doesn't get any more vanilla than this. And the vinyl fence! As long as it sort of resembles white picket most are willing to overlook its easily damaged, awful plasticness.

Re: Allston-Brighton Developments

Sadly, that Santander bank is unquestionably doomed. A folded plate roof! So rare in this area and it will surely be demolished with no protest whatsoever.

Re: 150 Kneeland Street | Chinatown

A roof mechanical screen that is actually integrated with the building rather than just a box dropped on top? Yes please and thanks.
