Re: Crossroads at Kenmore | 560 Commonwealth Ave | Kenmore Square

Actually not sure if it ever went to court. Deval had pushed for them twice and was shot down, figured it was via the courts.

Re: Crossroads at Kenmore | 560 Commonwealth Ave | Kenmore Square

Traffic cameras have been found in court to be against the State's Constitution, so they are pretty much a non starter.

Boston has a ton of TOD across the neighborhoods.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

That is actually a pretty amusing observation.

Re: Fred Salvucci @ Harvard Gardens (Bar)

Ah, just missed it then. Next time I make it more of a point to get out of the office earlier.

Re: Fred Salvucci @ Harvard Gardens (Bar)

Ugh, when did they end up speaking? I got there a bit late (7ish) and didn't stay too long - seemed rather packed and figured I had missed things.

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Dunno - I always have called/known that area as the Leather District, although, I guess it was just as common to call some of it Chinatown (although that was a pretty small part).

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

From coming in on 93 today, that side of the tower is not clad yet (although I could see it peaking around the curved corner).

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Not much going on except for 40% and 50% capacity improvements on both the Red and Orange lines, serious contemplation and study of redoing the green line with all low floor vehicles (leading to...

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

The MBTA officially gave the reason why they aren't looking into articulated trainsets - they want operational flexibility. If one car in the train goes down the entire set is down. With the married...

Re: Capitalism vs Not Capitalism

That is some vile, border line racist shite you are spewing here. Again, I suggest you firmly look at yourself in the mirror - really didn't think I would see people belittling another's experiences...

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

Ah, yeah - didn't understand the initial criticism them. I agree another floor or two would be more fitting here - and one would think more profitable, too. No idea on cost increases per floor over...

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

The bus routes are pretty much setup as radial out of the terminal station (Forest Hills) - buses going south inherently go through Rozzie into Westie and beyond.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

I can agree that things like EMUs/DMUs should be rather off the shelf and reasonably standardized, which, I think with the new FRA regs, is now possibly (standards being Euro models). Subway and...

Re: Housing a Changing City: Boston 2030

Which is still a drop in the hat to fix the housing issue. Supertalls and sky scrappers aren't the fix - comprehensive zoning control and 4-5 story buildings are. Last I checked, the BPDA/BRA still...

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

I think you should probably take your own advice here, and just think about it in your head for a minute, as I think KentXie's comments are going well over your head.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Sounds like way more moving parts and things to fail over the 25-40 year expected lifespans of these vehicles. As for PCCs, that was a different era (and light rail vs heavy). They also still offered...

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

Eh, I would take (almost) anything on any of the air rights parcels over the pike. Given the complexity and cost of building on any of the air rights parcels... I'll take whatever I can get.

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

I have no idea how you read that article and then made this comment.

#2 That quote is about the housing crisis, not financials.

Re: West Roxbury Developments

Most opposition I have seen is that its hundreds of kids crammed into a tiny lot (with no outdoor amenities, etc). As for taking the CR - that also seems kind of iffy give the reverse commute, there...

Re: 40 Trinity Place | 426 Stuart Street | Back Bay

Boston isn't even in the top 50 US cities for hotel/lodging tax rates.
