Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I would guess that there is a correlation with the type of the casino. A high end (i.e. Encore casino) is less likely to come with the negative effects of a low end venue.

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

Totally dysfunctional crap. I couldn't walk in that garage without hitting my head on multiple pipes and other overhead infrastructure, and I am not unusually tall.

Re: Parcel P (Foundation Medicine) | 400 Summer Street | Seaport

The pedestrian connection between Congress and Summer is going to be fantastic. So annoying trying to walk in that area right now.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Parking should be free for arrivals after 5:00. Most of the lots are at 10-20% utilization by 7:00, might as well incentivize additional off-peak ridership.

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

I think that actually is accessible. If you look at the Page 22 render, the accessible route does something like 7 zig zags while the stairs cut through the ramping.

I feel like you could get the best of both with articulated trains in three car sets.

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

More accurate than the hotels in Chelsea that call themselves "Logan Airport."

Re: San Francisco high-rise sinking, tilting

The plan is to allow the sinking side so that the other side will sink a bit to relevel it.

I can't see how the infrastructure costs for catenary are at all logical when battery-electric buses are so close on the horizon.

Re: North-South Rail Link

Wait, are you comparing summer '17 traffic to current fall traffic? It's lighter every summer from every direction.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

The vast majority of taxes you pay are indexed to inflation by default. Transportation use taxes are the only significant taxes in my life that are not.

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

Seems like a 3rd escalator would have been a smart thing here for reliability purposes.
