Re: Boston (née New Brighton) Landing | New Balance Complex | Brighton

(Very off topic to the actual development, but...) I feel like more is going on than environmental regulations. In Canada, you can get the Golf in 35 different colors, while the US only has 5...

Re: The Aberdeen | 1650 Commonwealth Ave. | Brighton

Nothing has closed (because the building hasn't reached that point), but list prices are from ~600K for smallest units to 1.8MM for a 3BR, 3 Bath penthouse unit. A 3BR, 2 bath unit listed at $1.5MM...

Re: Allston Yards (Stop and Shop) | 60 Everett St | Allston

This is a good pic since it has heights.

New Balance has completed ~198' residential, planned ~195' hotel. Allston Yards is 2x200', 210', 235' . I'll leave the question of whether that is "a good...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Most people's opinions is that we already have a housing crisis. If you can't afford to pay $10,000/year for your car, should you go shopping for a car that costs $12,500/year?
