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

It's one of the most awful jobs a person can have. I talked to someone who did that work once... it's just as unbearable as you'd expect.

Re: Northern Avenue Bridge Fort Point Channel

It also was a nod to pilings and the historical wharves. I like it, but my preference would be a restoration of the original metal. The best part of that bridge is the wooden floor and the metal...

Personally, I think itís a dumb idea. Itís certainly not a model thatís in any way realistic... and therefore is a dumb thing to say that means she isnít to be taken seriously. I agree with your...

Yeah I was big fan and hoped she'd take on Marty next election, but she showed her neophyte hand when she called for the T to just be free. Whatever you think of that as a proposal, just "calling...

Re: Jamaica Plain Infill

Such a shame. The landing in front of that church is a great urban space, and deserves so much more activity than it gets.

Re: Jamaica Plain Infill

What exactly does that refer to? The Jackson Sq master plan? Or to the new corridor plan? If true, thatís ridiculous. I agree about radicals; they nearly defeated what wouldíve been a perfectly fine...

Re: Jamaica Plain Infill

Jackson Square isnít a region; itís an intersection. The actual square is long gone but before urban renewal, was a massive intersection (Columbus / Pynchon, Ritchie, Amory, Centre) that entirely...

Re: Jamaica Plain Infill

This is Columbus.. There is almost nothing on this stretch. 12 stories, or even more, would be appropriate here. And this is coming from someone who is not a huge fan of the height fetishists. And,...

Re: Jamaica Plain Infill

Ugh. The mayors rezoning of this corridor is such a sham. This building literally sits in the middle of wasteland on one side and some of the ugliest housing projects in the city on the other. ...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I made the switch from drive to train (commuter to red line) only a couple weeks before the derailment. Itís been disgusting, try getting home during rush hour - itís absolutely insane. Iíve been...

Re: Photo of the Day, Boston Style: Part XII (2019)

I actually have always loved the views of the dome against clear, unobstructed sky, so this makes me sad.

Youíre dead on.

Perhaps more on track: having urban design and infrastructure that brings people together rather than atomizing them is one lever of solution...

Unbuilt roads around metro Boston

I didnít see anything on this so making a new thread. Perhaps when aB gets the eventual reorganization weíve been talking about, there can be a sub-portal to all unbuilt infrastructure projects.

Interesting that the line is drawn as running right across Corey Hill in Brookline. I wonder what they were thinking, if anything.

Re: Unbuilt railroads

I really would love to have this map (or something similar) on my wall. I found an awesome Boston sewer map that was the exact same dimensions, looks like the same cartographer, as this one.
