Re: Unbuilt roads around metro Boston

I actually have an earnest desire to learn more about the Boston Bypass and how serious that guy actually was. I remember seeing the yellow signs saying "Back the BB" around when I was very young,...

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

Well I'm trying Edge today, so we'll see how that goes. So far, no issues, other than the T's anemic wifi.

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

So Chrome has now crashed twice while I've been trying to post how the ads are now crashing Chrome on my super-cheap commuter laptop. Totally understand the need to fund, and I wouldn't take them off...

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

Wow, the construction is really the only way you can tell those last 2 photos weren't taken in 1992.

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

That looks absolutely terrifying. The Garden's balcony already makes me think I'm going to tumble off into the loge, I can't imagine how much more unsettling that view is going to be.

Re: Ode to Brutalism

The experience is as important as the aesthetics. When my mother used to have to drag me to City Hall for whatever reason as a kid, the size and maze-like qualities were fascinating, not to mention...

Re: Martin's Park | Children's Wharf | Fort Point

I don't think too many children would think this park is overdesigned. Looks like a fun place for a 6 year old to explore.

Re: Flickr Finds

Just spent the last 20 minutes identifying signatures. That's an heirloom to get framed and protect, so many good names on that, a few who sadly aren't with us anymore.

Re: The New Retail Thread

It's a veterinarian office, but they only see those Boston Dynamics robot dogs.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

I still don't like the color-coded T logos. Blends in too much with the side of the car, and there's simply not enough contrast between the orange and the stainless to make it work. I know you'd...

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

It's going to drive me nuts that the typeface isn't actually Helvetica like the T's physical signage. I'm the 1/10th of 1% that cares, but it would look better if it was consistent with the rest of...

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

Why not just have that Silver Line run up to North Station? Would give you a direct North-South Station connection and allow passengers at North to get the one-connection trip to Logan.

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

I wonder if they could eventually build out the backside of the Garden over the tracks now that the old ramp to the Artery isn't right behind it anymore. That way you could get the wider concourse...

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

So, practical question, where do we define the limits of where the charge would come into effect? At the city limits or closer to the core business areas of the city?

Re: MGH Expansion | 275 Cambridge Street | West End

No doubt MGH has detailed projections on their patient load going forward and these buildings and wards are designed to meet that capacity without creating excessive and persistent vacancies.

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

Instead of tolling Morrissey, why not eliminate the ramps to/from it on 93? Make Columbia Road and Granite Ave the only two ramps in the area, and force people to commit to one or the other. Now you...

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

Awesome photos! It's cool to see everything roughed in like that. I've never been in a tall residential building, do they maintain access to chases with doors or is everything hidden in the walls?

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

It's the large scale events that are the most disruptive, though. If other developments create an increase of people and traffic, it's generally more of a steady stream that might be more congested...

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

They're closing the Beacon St. entrance to Yawkey for a year starting Friday. For those of us who come in on the Fenway Park side it's not a big deal, but the folks coming from the Kenmore side are a...

Re: Flickr Finds

That Rowes Wharf hadn't been built yet in 1982 is stunning to me. Granted, I was born a few years after that photo was taken, but I kind of assumed that building had been there for decades since it's...
