Re: BU Development Thread

If this was going up in any other city, you'd be crying 'why can't we buildings like that'.

It is directly across from the commie block Warren Towers, and doesn't involve tear down of anything,...

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

There are 24-25 above where the hotel roofline, so another 7 or so. I'd guestimate it will top out about where the top of the concrete pump is, in the most recent pics.

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

I have a couple buildings going up near me...balconies were all prefab and literally last things tacked on. It will have that pop of texture soon enough.

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

It is sooo good... Finally got to see it briefly over the weekend, and cannot wait to come back and see the space come alive.

Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

Northeastern didn't build it. A private developer, Phoenix Property Development did.

Re: The Boulevard (née The Times/Littlest Bar) | 110 Broad St | Downtown

They were there in 2008...how old these were in 2008, I don't know. I'm pretty sure I've seen pics from 30's or 40's and they weren't there. I'd love to see the iron star masonry braces make a...

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

I like it...and love the project. The loss of the wrought iron windows on Water Street entrance has me twitching negatively, a little bit. The replacement is not commensurate with what they removed....

Re: 40 Trinity Place | 426 Stuart Street | Back Bay

For international visitors from Asia and Middle East who like to spend, it's a very well known brand. The chance that they can say it's their first/flagship property in North America gives the...

Re: Whiskey Priest/Atlantic Beer Garden Redevelopment | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Yes, although most of these brands are about as unique as a LV monogram handbag. Sure, it looks luxe in the shop window, but your Aunt Linda also has one in the back of her '92 Saturn.

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

No, but it draws your eye up and you wonder what is causing that gold/copper 'reflection' on a sunny day (even though further inspection you see the illusion). It also helps the addition float in...

Re: Arsenal Yards | Arsenal Mall Redevelopment | Watertown

It would, and it definitely is. Change the material colors/finishings and the vegetation in the renders, rinse and repeat all over the world. Boston likes to think of itself as the dumping ground...

Re: Kenmore Square North

It's the hazy summer nights that you, your parents, their parents, spent at Fenway. It's your signpost when drunk wandering the Kenmore area after the clubs closed. It's a rare bit of color on an...

Re: 5 Middlesex Avenue | Assembly Square | Somerville

What's the immediately next to 93, in the renders? Not their project, but definitely some massing models of something.

Re: The New Retail Thread

Re: Before and after

Another one of the hotel coming down - with both Green Line and Causeway Street views before, during, and after.

The O'Neill was a bad replacement, but as a whole the city has come a LONG way...
