Re: The Alcott (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

Good points. We've been on AB a similar length of time, and sometimes I'm shocked at how much time passes between the first rumors to the topping off. Every now and then I go back to page one of a...

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

Thanks! I either didn't know or just forgot that this was a component of the development. Pretty exciting (I work around the corner).

Re: Parcel 9 - The Greenway

This article says construction begins in October. But it also does not show the construction tram in a positive/competent light.

Re: Logan Flight Additions

I think Southwest's struggles are mostly centered around the 737 Max. But they've been pulling hard out of destinations left and right recently. We'll see how things change going forward after the...

Re: Worcester Reactory Biopark

And the Clocktower is actually largely new construction. It's a very well done recreation, but the upper levels are almost entirely concrete and it was only completed in the last few years.

Re: Worcester Reactory Biopark

There's a new greenhouse on hospital grounds which is open and offers the same opportunities that the farm did (right down to the cheap produce/flowers for sale). There's also a new(ish) community...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

My girlfriend was at the races in Saratoga this weekend. She sent me a couple of pics, but Encore Boston Harbor is marketing hard out there. They have posters, banners, they're sponsoring events and...

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

Mostly this. I actually liked the tower design, but there's absolutely no reason you can't have a beautifully designed tower and also maintain a human scale street level. The absolute destruction of...

Re: Parcel 9 - The Greenway

I hope so, but I've seen various signs that have given me hope it's starting for years (fences, equipment on the site, etc.). So I'm not holding my breath.

Re: Logan Flight Additions

I've never done HKG-SIN, but I've done DFW-SYD (in economy) and I agree. I actually agree with Whighlander's comments about BOS-FRA-India (MAA for me typically). It's a really easy connection.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Maybe (probably) a really dumb question, but is there a chance a train with more passengers and their added weight would prevent or reduce the potential of a train like this from derailing?

Re: Logan Flight Additions

I'm willing to bet it's a combination of factors.


Drawing from well outside the small 150k metro area. It's a tiny city, but it's extremely remote by New England/NE United States standards. So...

Re: The New Retail Thread

It's listed as "Permanently Closed" in google searches. This has likely been a long time coming: https://www.bostonmagazine.com/news/2019/01/16/the-tannery-sam-hassan/

Re: Somerville Developments

I don't know. I think it's a pretty reasonable reaction. I'm still pretty skeptical about how SCAPE proposes to build here and keep the businesses from leaving. If they stand any change of having...

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

Hopefully this means we'll see the section of the garage over the street start to come down in the coming months.

Re: Fall River/New Bedford Commuter Rail

I wouldn't focus too much on that one specific point. F-Line has laid out a laundry list of technical issues and this is just one more. And it's definitely something worth noting and something that...

I don't question the investment. It's a good one and they've done some of their homework. And as much as I'd like to believe that fierce opposition could stop this one, I'm not sure that's the case....

Re: Fall River/New Bedford Commuter Rail

I'll admit that the enthusiasm for the project isn't as visible or obvious as it is for other projects. It's hard to maintain enthusiasm and energy fighting for something for 30+ years. Many (most)...

Re: Fall River/New Bedford Commuter Rail

The problem with relying on capital cost per daily new transit rider is that to do so, you have to assume the ridership projections are accurate. Often times they're not...
