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

Got to tag along on a hard hat tour of One Dalton for a bunch of buyers led by Suffolk Construction last week. Uppermost floor reached was 45. Also got an inside look at the developing Four...

Re: Portland Bayside

I used to wonder about these things when I was younger and it mattered to me (for some reason), but not so much anymore. Now that it's been brought up though, I think NNE has no capital. It's such...

Re: Portland Bayside

I've seen a lot of shift in the development attitudes, from NIMBY to YIMBY, mostly related to housing costs and the fact that people now want to live in vibrant, busy cities. That should bode well...

Re: Lowell 2015 update

PS the UMass buildings look great. Thanks for posting. Reminds me a bit of the Muskie School in Portland (not really similar, but for some reason it made me think of it)....

Re: Lowell 2015 update

I understand their reasoning too. Lowell probably doesn't want to just be a bedroom. They want independent significance, and that comes from commercial presence. I think the central cities are...

Re: New England Skylines thread

I can't tell if this is a joke or not. Burlington obviously blows Biddeford out of the water on all fronts, but that said Biddeford had really come extremely far in recent years (some nice re-use of...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Yeah, you're right. There was a period of time between the early 1990s and mid-2000s where virtually no new housing at all was built downtown. For me, that represented most of my childhood, so it...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

I reviewed the pricing and noticed that there is actually a fair degree of variability in the units, with the ~$700k units appearing to represent the rooftop penthouses with water-facing decks. ...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Important to note is that the renderings are just for scale, not actually detailed pictures of what's proposed. This is a master plan approval process for sf, uses, etc.

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

Ask Mike Mulligan and Mary Anne, or Henry B Swap. Sorry I couldn't resist the reference to one of my favorite children's books.

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

The CLF is crazy.

The City will benefit more from the tax generated by this site in one year than it would in the next 20 as a sidewalk.

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

Thanks for the added thoughts/reply. The more I try to understand what's going on, from the available media publications and filings, the more confused I get (due in large part to a lack of concise...

Some really good points made in these poses, thanks.

Your implicit question piqued my interest and I did some quick research. Take my following comments with that in mind.

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

I'm not a fan of that proposal.

Regarding the Franklin Street study/planning process, I believe it's still very much active but the key is funding. If you're really interested your should contact...

Re: Greater New England -- Portland Area -- Landscape Architecture Market?

It can be done. We're in Boston in less than 2 hours. It's all tradeoff. Sounds like you're thinking about making the right moves.
