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

The Whole Foods at Symphony is a five minute walk from here. I doubt they'd put two Whole Foods a quarter of a mile apart from each other in this area, and I doubt see much sense in moving the...

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

Google has also been super low-key about their NYC expansion. I bet most New Yorkers don’t even know it’s happening. Amazon had been the complete opposite, and more publicity = more criticism.

Re: Volpe Transportation Center Development | Kendall Sq | Cambridge

How are 30 meters of parking court going to prevent spying and eavesdropping efforts that 30 meters of lobby space couldn't?

Re: Volpe Transportation Center Development | Kendall Sq | Cambridge

To build off of fattony's doubts and CSTH's suggestions, put something like the new atrium at 100 Federal (http://www.archboston.org/community/showthread.php?t=5143&page=14) along Binney. It's way...

Re: Volpe Transportation Center Development | Kendall Sq | Cambridge

This makes no sense.

If you don't want the building to front the street, then slot it behind a row of single-story "taxpayer" retail on Binney. A row of storefronts would do a better job of...

Re: Volpe Transportation Center Development | Kendall Sq | Cambridge

As this is a Federal Building, I'm pretty sure they're presenting to the planning board just as a courtesy. By law they can build whatever they want.

Yes, all of this.

I get the theory, I get the incentives, I get all of it. A congestion tax would definitely make sense in the perfect world. But pushing people to substitute away from driving...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Fairmount is also way cheaper than Hyde Park (Zone 1A vs Zone 1). $84.50/month versus $200.25/month, or $2.25/trip versus $6.25/trip. A ridiculous discrepancy for two stations separated by an 8...

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?
