Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

So I will no longer be the site's administrator -- a job I was never really crazy about in the first place. I only wanted to make sure the board was kept alive and I think I did a pretty decent job...

Re: Archboston revamp

The threads got deleted because they were a mess and creating confusion. There are going to be major changes to the site in the coming days. In the meantime, enough with the melodrama already.

Re: Rifleman BAN OR STAY

Much ado about nothing. Rifleman is not getting banned regardless of the poll and regardless of whether he wants it. If Rifleman doesn't want to post anymore, he shouldn't post anymore.

Re: The Berkeley | 370-380 Harrison Ave | South End

How is this new iteration superior to the last one? I thought the massing and use of materials was far better in the original. Now we get a big monolithic mass extending the whole length of the block...

Me too. There's definitely some weirdness going on with these cores.

Re: Limited-service Hotel Project | 73 Essex St | Chinatown

I agree as well. To lose this building to a mini-Kensington would only further diminish this part of downtown.

The old building is gone -- Pierce Boston and 1350 Boylston under construction in the background:

Re: Boston Properties Office Tower | 888 Boylston Street | Back Bay

The fencing around the plaza is down and it's open to the public.

Re: New Residence Hall at New England Conservatory

I don't think I've ever seen these terracotta shingles before. I'm really liking the way they look in person. Far superior to the typical concrete panel/ alucabond crap popping up all over.

Great link, goldenretrievers. What a fascinating doc. Thanks for posting it.

Re: Julie Hall | Brookline Ave | Emanuel College | Fenway

This site is fence off and the landscaping is being removed. It looks like they're getting ready to demo the existing building.

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

The phallic stuff, I don't get it. I think if someone wants to look at at a tall building and see a penis, they'll see a penis. Just like if someone wants to look at something like a stadium and...

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

The majority of these proposals are fat, grotesque towers like the ones that already make up our chunky skyline, albeit a bit taller... but also a bit fatter. Lendlease is the only proposal I could...

Re: Our Lady of Good Voyage | Seaport Sq Parcel H | 55 - 57 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Of course I'm still around, man. I read/admin the board every day, even if I'm not posting so much lately.

Re: One Bromfield | 1 Bromfield Street | Downtown

I like the tower quite a bit. I think it would serve as a nice contrast among downtown's boxes. I'm a little skeptical that the cantilevers and all those curves will survive VE, though.

Re: The Boulevard (née The Times/Littlest Bar) | 110 Broad St | Downtown

It wouldn't be nearly as cringey if there was an actual boulevard anywhere near this.
