You could have said the same thing about the edges of Lansdowne St. 10 years ago, but it's teeming with outdoor space now. You just can't expect it to happen overnight. Do you really think someone...

It cost $1 billion to build the tunnel sections under that tiny sliver of Fort Point Channel (0.1 miles) and you want them to build a tunnel the entire length of the channel instead? On top of that,...

Part of the spaghetti includes the I-90 extension. How would you divert the extension and still be able to connect the Mass Pike, an I-90/93 interchange and Logan Airport without leveling half of...

The scale of this model seems totally out of proportion to the surrounding buildings. I drive past this lot every morning and I can't figure how a building of this size is going to fit. The lot...

That would probably create an opportunity to extend Washington St. northbound, beyond State St. and through the center of City Hall Plaza. If Hanover St. was extended westbound to Cambridge St., the...
