Re: MXD Residential Tower | 135 Broadway | Kendall Square

I wish Cambridge would get over itself and encourage proper commercial street walls. I hate all these little tiny pocket parks around Kendall. Similar shit is happening with Volpe where all the...

Re: Dorm Tower @ Emerson College | 1-3 Boylston Place | Downtown

Emerson can go fuck itself. I totally agree they're a cancer downtown. They transform everything they touch into safe sterile institutional space.

Re: Downtown Crossing

Having worked in a WeWork I found it to be an awful experience. Little privacy (glass walled offices) and poor sound insolation.

They're trendy and cheap (in many scenarios) right now. It's...

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

No, it was one of the proposed designs for Winthrop Square. Previous poster was wish-casting. It's not an officially proposed tower.

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

Deserves its own thread, though, if they're only just considering it I wouldn't expect activity for another 2 to 3 years.

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

The Revere's not going anywhere. It's ugly, but it prints money. There's no good reason for a facade rework either as nobody is booking or not booking there based on the facade.

Also the renovated...

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

What is your business model if you don't mind explaining a little bit? Advertisements or is there something more?

Re: Archboston revamp

I've finished a preliminary version of the forum scraper if we need to go that route. There's a few kinks to work out but it can properly traverse all forums, threads, and posts over many pages.

Re: LaGrange Tower | 47-55 LaGrange St. | Theater District

I am confused. Excavator gone but several slightly torn up patches of asphalt exist.

Re: LaGrange Tower | 47-55 LaGrange St. | Theater District

This site is fenced off now, parking lot is closed and a large excavator is on site. I suspect ground breaking is imminent.

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

I'm sorry, but how exactly is this project creating 2,700 new jobs? It takes maybe 20 people to operate this tower.

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

I thought the glass was too dark when it started to climb up the side. Gave it time for the interiors to be added hoping it would lighten up... and it did slightly. It's still too dark though.

Oh...

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

The office tower appears to have a steel/iron core instead of a cement one? That seems unusual.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Can we move the Casino Politics chat to a separate thread? I think it's worth discussion, but not in the development thread.

Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center
