Re: Photo of the Day, Boston Style: Part X (2017)

If not for the signage I'd have thought this was a prison.

Re: Pier 4 Office Tower | 140 Northern Ave | Seaport

Apples and oranges. If you want this so bad then you should move here.

Re: Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

We've been calling this 128-by-the-Sea but I think Stamford-by-the-Sea is more analogous.

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

The avenues for sure but the side streets, the streets most people live on, are not as large. And it doesn't make it any less walkable.

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

IDK if this has been brought up but I was just looking in detail at the proposed roads and they all strike me as overkill. It looks like the Seaport with even the side "streets" having 4 or 5 lanes...

Re: Winter Garden | 100 Federal St. | Financial District

Well it's better than what was there before and I'm sure it will be used for lunch, but not much else.

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

I was holding out hope this would turn out ok but that glass work looks like a tumor.

No one is going to walk that far to shave off a few min, that's not how people think.

Re: Green Line Reconfiguration

But Washington St and Coolidge Corner aren't. But given that it's the end of the line I suppose express service isn't really needed.

Re: Green Line Reconfiguration

Here's a random idea that just came to me. Would it make sense to install a third express track on the C line from Cleveland Circle to St Mary's? The highest ridership stations are Cleveland Cir,...

Re: Parcel 9 - The Greenway

Keeping this capped at 6 floors is such a waste. Not saying there should be some 20 story tower here but this is prime real estate. No wonder Boston has become so expensive.

Re: Assembly Sq <-> Casino Footbridge

Because that costs more over time. This is a better option, especially if Everett is going to expand their BRT program which will be a far cheaper option for improving transit.

Re: Silver Line to Chelsea

Obviously it will, and there will be a backup at the bridge over Chelsea River too. But the question is that even with traffic is this still a better option than the buses down Meridian St or any...

Re: Mission Hill (Re-)Development

Politics. Southie had strong politicians who could get power lines sunk. Mission Hill was the hood not too long ago and never had the power base to get things done.

Re: MIT New 450-bed Residence Hall | 121 Vassar St. | Cambridge

I wonder if MIT dorm architects are on a competition to upstage one another with how ugly their buildings can get.

This is a new level of ugly.

Just went through their website. These ass...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

The MBTA would L O V E to bustitute this line. It would be such a loss. But extending the heavy rail Red Line would require an overpass at Central Ave and Capen St which is 1) expensive and 2) going...

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

I honestly like this. There's really not much else you can do to the West End to make it an urban neighborhood so since this is down the street from a transit hub it may as well be big. Plus it's...

Re: MBTA plans to discontinue Silver Line SL3 branch to City Point due to low ridersh

SL1.

I'm locking this thread since there is no point. If the MBTA revives SL2 to City Point or Southie then it'll be reopened.
