Re: Nominations: ArchBoston Biggest Urban Planning Disaster

How has no one mentioned the West End? From vibrant, diverse, mixed use district to empty "parks" dotted by residential towers and crossed by maintenance roads and alleys. Not even true city blocks.

Re: New us masterplanned city.

Some of the islands could do. Some minuscule coastal townships between BH and Eastport would also work. There are lots of un-incorporated territories up on the St. John River and other places in...

Re: New us masterplanned city.

Great idea! I've dreamed many times about this.

Why should China have all the fun? They get to build new ones every year or so.

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

God this thing is an embarrassment. Shorter, squatter, uglier. Even the "great hall" is worse. The shape isn't even the worse part. The facade looks like it was designed by a two year old on LSD....

Re: Providence developments

Exactly. It's an icon, and to demolish it would be a travesty.

Re: How Tall Are Boston's Buildings and Should They Be Taller?

Pathetic cities with nothing going for them try to build massive, one-shot edifices in the hope of making themselves look great. Sure, I would love to see a massive building in Boston, but I just...

Re: Boston in the 1960's

I wish you could still find sights in Boston that looked like this-seedy, urban, cool, and beautiful in a way.

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

I could see how that could be annoying, but it probably could work. There would already be alot of visitors at the retail portion, and they could make an elevator that didn't go to people's homes.
