Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Regarding the (B) building, I think it was going to get a facadectomy, but the facade was no longer structurally sound by the time Millenium took over. At least that's kind of what shows up in the...

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

I agree with you. I never really spent any time in Winthrop Square, other than passing through on my way to somewhere else, but it always struck me as dark and unwelcoming. I like the idea of...

Re: Kindred Care hospital redevelopment

This looks fantastic. Along with all the other planned residential construction in this area, it might finally start to feel like a more cohesive neighborhood.



Yes, my experience, too. I lived...

Re: Fort Point

Those of us who want speed still have the option of riding in the street. For example, I generally prefer the parking protected lane on Columbus, but if there are a lot of cyclists in it, I'll opt...

Re: Fort Point

You'd think green paint would help, but other places where it has been used, such as Mass Ave. opposite the CS complex, pedestrians still hang out in the bike lane. I think the only thing that really...

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

Wow, unnecessarily harsh.

By the way, I like all of the pictures people post, whether or not they cater to my own specific interests. Keep them coming, but let's try to be civil when it comes to...

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

There used to be a terminal D. It was kind of funky, smallish, and in the way when they decided to expand terminal C. Although it might seem to have made sense to rename Terminal E at that juncture,...

Re: Aerials

Hi, welcome to the forum, and thanks for the pictures!


I can see my neighborhood in this one (and my house I suppose, if I could zoom in far enough)!

Re: Regional Rail (including North-South Rail Link)

I was just there and rode two different RER systems (B & C). C did feature double deck cars, though B did not. In both cases, the cars were configured as 2x2 seating and had wide doors at both ends...

Re: Tremont Crossing | Roxbury

Probably a bit of both. It is very much off the radar for most people, tucked in behind project housing. Few people have any reason to go down that street and wouldn't know this building exists. It...

Re: Regional Rail (including North-South Rail Link)

Also, that's three extra elevators which seem to cost a ridiculous amount of money.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

The minimum bets are always too high at stand alone casinos for the casual gambler. I like black jack but I'm not so good at it that I can count on winning or breaking even. A $25 minimum effectively...

Re: Memorial Drive Greenway Phase III

These are not the final lines, just markings by the engineers to instruct the paint crew on how to place the permanent lines. This is pretty standard anywhere that the striping involves things like...

Re: South Bay Center Expansion | Dorchester

There is a lot of potential for adjacent areas, too, if this style continues. South Bay could open up thousands of new residences.

Re: Regional Rail (including North-South Rail Link)

This is why the focus needs to be on an incremental approach, such as the method described in the TransitMatters white paper. There is no reason we can't start with alternative one and through phases...

I think the mishmash is a feature, not a bug.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I don't read it that way at all. I don't think Wu seriously expects her call to directly result in fare elimination. She is trying to move the overton window by making it a topic for public...

Re: Northern Avenue Bridge Fort Point Channel

Of the four presented in the second video, I like the second one far more than the others. It is modern, yet still referential to the original design.

Re: 3200 Washington St. | Egleston Sq. | Jamaica Plain

It can still be a bit dicey, but definitely trending toward better things. The entire Washington St. corridor between Columbus/Seaver and Forest Hills is undergoing a radical transformation. Already...

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

Interestingly, though, it does show the tunnel, labelled as Silver Line Way, it just doesn't identify it as a transit line.

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

The West Roxbury Orange Line station wouldn't be all that close to Route 128. The southward OLX would have to go farther to actually be considered a 128 terminus.

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

The ROI would be a city in which people can easily and quickly move about from one place to another. Public transit efficacy can't be measured by traditional business metrics.

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Yes, I am guilty of some hyperbole. But as you well articulated in your previous post, we did the exact opposite in terms of tax policy from what should have happened. And what comes from that?...
