Re: Assembly Sq <-> Casino Footbridge

I see it differently. Its not a binary issue: i.e. its either appealing to hang out, or its empty and hostile.

The question is whether there are things that can be done to make it safer and more...

Re: Hook Lobster Development | 436-440 Atlantic Ave | Downtown

Verrrry interesting. That sounds like 'quasi-equity' dressed up as a loan (not that there's anything wrong with that, especially because we're talking about a not-for-profit...)

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage, 20 Clinton Street

Nonsense. A blank streetwall here even after all this investment would be a really bad outcome.

This parcel and the adjacent ramp parcel should both have a complete rethinking / redesign.

Wait aren't those the old renders? I thought the one with all the engineered wood was the most recent?

Re: 110 Arlington Street - Boutique Hotel | Bay Village

Interesting to compare / contrast to the Forecaster addition. Similar concept & mass - better execution here.

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

Oh wait did I get this wrong? How embarrasing if so. I really thought they'd got down to ground level inside the old facades - is the old building really bearing the load of the new bit?

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown
