Re: Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

Oh please, let's conveniently forget that South Station is a 15 minute walk away. Stamford has absolutely nothing over the Seaport, so how about we stop this nonsense?

Re: 50 Liberty @ Fan Pier | 50 Liberty Drive | Seaport

Really? I think they'll be a hit, assuming the plywood railings are temporary and the bottom is some sort of cafe. What's not to like about elevated seating on the water?

Re: MassMutual Fan Pier

Is that the undeveloped site between One Marina Park Drive and 50 Liberty?

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

The striped spandrels completely kill this thing and are a total 180 from the "jewel box" renderings. They make it look like the building took off from Rt. 128 and landed in downtown Boston.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

If you actually read my post you would see that's exactly the point I was making.

My question stands: Amazon already has a DC lobbying presence and owns the town's newspaper of record, how would...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

I've heard this argument dozens of times and, quite frankly, I don't get it. How does putting their HQ in/around DC give them a stronger hand with the government?

Re: Rosa Parks Boulevard

This is a great idea. If there's any way you can get it to the right person at City Hall I have no doubt Walsh will jump on it.

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

Public officials would no doubt scream safety and accessibility, but there's no reason why those should be major obstacles.

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

There's been a lot of talk of reviving ferries in Boston, and NYC has gone full steam ahead on ferries in the East River. So here's a thought:

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Re: Lovejoy Wharf | 131 Beverly Street | West End

Having a personal vehicle in downtown Boston will only become less valuable in the future. Assuming the units are selling well now I can't imagine you'd have any problem finding a buyer down the line.

Funny to see all this spilled ink on Pittsburgh (both here and across other media) when there is another city in the same state that may be the single best choice in the whole country.
