Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

My first reaction - 150,000 jobs added to metro Boston in less than 2 years. I want to rub that figure in the nose of everyone who said "everything will collapse if we add 50,000 over 20 years."

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

Are you also one of those people who think granite counter tops are the difference between luxury and affordable condos? Exactly how much of the $445 million do you think is attributable to the TVs...

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

I haven't been down there in probably about a year. These latest pictures are unrecognizable to me.

Re: General Boston Discussion.

I agree with this. Blue to Kendall is a great idea, but it is an AND not an OR, with Blue to Charles/MGH.

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

I have a question for the more transit savvy posters - What do you think of the CT2 (as well as 85 and EZ ride) being routed down Ames Street in Kendall Square?

I didn't know it was happening...

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

That makes more sense than having 3 "headquarters." 3 different companies can have 3 headquarters.

Re: North-South Rail Link

I'm not skilled in the art, so I'm trying to learn here. I think I understand the limitations of accessing the terminal through an interlocking and I would have figured that changing from a terminal...

Re: North-South Rail Link

"Rail Unification" or "Rail Union" or something along those lines.

To me, the word union evokes the image of something fragmented that could be greater than the sum of its parts, which is exactly...

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

It looks like tunnels I’ve seen all over the New York or London systems. They will put up some ads and a zillion people a day will traverse the whole thing in 30 seconds or so without really looking...

Re: Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

How would access work to the south from a Conway Park station? Stairs (and elevator?) up to Park St overpass height?

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

As a tech worker, I also was hoping Amazon would drive up our salaries. I do think there is some upside to this split scenario though. The Bay Area is clearly so saturated that it is turning...

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

I think you focused on the wrong part. It isn't really the disposable income on any one patron, its the total dollar volume across all patrons.

Take the perspective of the grocery store. If you...

Re: One Post Office Square Makeover and Expansion

It looks to my eye like they reduced the top double-height floor to single height and did away with the little pointy fingers sticking up in the air. It is the same number of floors.

Re: One Post Office Square Makeover and Expansion

What are you seeing that I'm not seeing? Because it looks the same height to me, minus the "lantern" thingy.

Re: Suffolk Downs Redevelopment

"HQ2" was always a pretty weird concept. How do you have 2 headquarters? Cutting it half again solidifies that Seattle will remain HQ and there will be 2 new (major) satellite campuses.

Re: Suffolk Downs Redevelopment

We'll have to agree to disagree about Amazon's reasoning.

We can agree, however, that concerns about housing and transportation cut both ways and I do worry that we can/will stretch ourselves too...

Re: Suffolk Downs Redevelopment

Well, Amazon isn't going to be building any skyscapers in Crystal City either, so pretty much every word you've typed about towers is completely wrong.

The biggest strike against Boston is the...

Re: MXD | 145 Broadway/250 Binney | Kendall Square

I don't follow you. I think this building couldn't be more different from quintessential Kendall Square. It's tall. It's glass. It has about 8 balconies. It has a strong retail program. It has...

Re: Allston-Brighton Developments
