Re: Unbuilt roads around metro Boston

Re: Worcester Ballpark & Redev

I'm not sure I see your point on the DC story - the developer got screwed as...

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

I don't see any residential fronting the haul road, and since Massport owns it I doubt they'd allow non-commercial traffic. I see a back entrance, potentially for fire lane access, but all car access...

Re: Possible Boston soccer stadium | Discussion

This was proposed in the 60s and again in the 90s, generally centered on what is now the Seaport. We've discussed it in so many threads that I believe we have a drinking game for it :).
