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

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Yes they absolutely have to be high to be accessible, but that's not why the Newtons are costing so much. There's a lot of bloat in there and also some bridge reconstructions that Newton should be...

Re: North Washington St Bridge

Mods are probably deleting them because they are too large. Try to keep pix below 1800px in either direction. If you are using imgur, append a "h" to the end of the string before .jpg.

Please do...

Re: Beth Israel Patient Building | West Campus | Longwood

This building is so stereotypical Payette too. I didn't even have to see the architect's name on the slides to know who did it.

Re: TransitMatters Regional Rail Plan

For dwell time, yes. For general capacity, we believe we can run trains frequently enough to boost capacity on the lines even with eliminating bilevels.

Re: TransitMatters Regional Rail Plan
