Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

One of the recent presentations to the FMCB has a picture of bus in testing - they fill them with barrels of sand to simulate the weight of the passengers. I assume they do the same with the trains...

Re: Dorm Tower @ Emerson College | 1-3 Boylston Place | Downtown

In your mind, is every college campus boring and pathetic by definition? I'm in this alley a lot and I agree that while the work is high quality it's pretty sterile and if you aren't an Emerson...

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

Fenway is already not a huge venue. They are removing $10 seats and building a high-rent party venue. I stand by my observation. If the seats are full (and they often are) they aren't useless.

Re: Suffolk Downs Redevelopment

These articles always cite that there's no school and no fire station... does the City actually want or need these facilities at that location? BPS certainly doesn't - it's trying to unload buildings.

Small tweak: he has extensive experience building sites like archBoston in other cities. He hasn't taken one over before that I'm aware of. When choosing mods, for instance, he's always known the...

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

1) Domain hosting is not free. It is cheap. We looked into this before. It was so cheap that people were questioning the value of even collecting a Patreon or membership fee with regularity.

Apparently public comments are open until the 22nd. All these things can be submitted.

EDIT: I have commented, and I urge others to do so.

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

I'm not. I'm saying we were in charge. We are no longer in charge. We could be in charge again somewhere else.

I also reiterate Beton's and Justin's concern from earlier - some posts on this site...

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

I believe Winthrop Square is original Shawmut Peninsula, but I could be slightly off.

Re: MXD II | 325 Main St. | Kendall Square

It's great close up but not great zoomed out. Could just be the render, similar to what happened with MIT's Building 4. High-quality facade that we all hated in drawings but liked in reality.

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

What's standard on the corporate internet is not standard on aB. There has never been a "we" to aB that can do anything with users' content before. It has never had management.

Re: Parcel 12 | Massachusetts Avenue at Boylston Street | Back Bay

Looked at it again and I still disagree. No label on the renders with colored buildings says "before" or "6/4 version" or a meeting name. The white renders are in a section dedicated to discussing...

Re: Parcel 12 | Massachusetts Avenue at Boylston Street | Back Bay

I believe those are massing models. That's the section of the presentation they're in, and earlier in the presentation the renders are still green and brown.

...it's confusing.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

All of which will have a positive impact beginning in about 2030.

That's the point. Nothing has happened. For the past ten years. It would have been easy and fast to appoint mods and upgrade the software a week ago. Nothing has happened.

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

It's not really the "main level", they're low floors where offices wouldn't sell anyway and that are directly linked to the existing garage.

I'm always thankful that towers in Boston aren't...
