Re: Downtown Crossing

That's 10 Dundas East, or commonly known as the Toronto Life building.

Re: 319 A Street Rear

Re: Biking in Boston

Here's a cool website that uses real-time data for bike-share systems around the world. Click on the city and it will show you how many bikes are at any given station and how many empty spots there...

Re: Road Construction Materials

When I was in high school, the section of Centre St., in Newton, between Route 9 and the Riverside line overpass was paved with concrete slabs. It made for quite the rhythmically bumpy and noisy...

Re: The New Retail Thread

I was just in Chicago and was so astounded by the fact that a CVS there had a liquor section I had to take a photo. All the while, I was thinking, "Where am I? This would never happen in Toronto or...

Re: You Can't Make A $1 Ticket to New York Without Breaking A Few (Safety) Regs

My only Fung-Wah experience was back in 2002. I took a day trip down to New York with a friend from school. It was spring and I was graduating and my friend, who was an exchange student, was...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Boston-Brazil will probably never happen. I think it's time we put that one to bed. In much the same way that many European routes from the West Coast, even if the traffic is there, don't stand much...

Re: Charlesview Redevelopment

Is the brick mid-rise residential? Rental or condo? If so, why are their no balconies. I get why there wouldn't be on the side facing Western, but what about the sides visible in the third photo?

Re: Millennium Place III | Hayward Place

Out of curiosity, is it standard practice for condo units to go on sale only after the building is under construction?

I know with the condo boom in Toronto, most (if not all) condo towers go on...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Turns out the route cuts are leisure routes to the Caribbean; San Juan, Santo Domingo and Havana. Furthermore, Spain isn't Italy. While much of the Boston-Italy traffic is leisure, Boston-Madrid has...

Re: New hotel tower Trinity Place near Copley Sq.

Meh. It looks like so many of the two dozen or so comparable condos going up here in Toronto, and elsewhere. It'll add a bit to the area and probably piss off some uppity Back-Bayers. So, I'm not...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Indeed. It's a matter of distance. Boston-Brazil (São Paulo, most likely) would be in the region of about 9 hours. Boston-Ponta Delgada is about 4.5. So the flight to Brazil is effectively twice the...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Yeah, that's not a big surprise. With the AA/BA joint venture, BA's morning flight can absorb AA's capacity. The analogy of rolling a bowling ball through the cabin is fairly appropriate to describe...

Re: Future Boston Alliance

And most of those taxi drivers are wrong. Much of the Toronto building boom is speculative purchasing by foreign investors. Yes, foreigners are involved, but many (dare I say most) never even set...

Re: Millennium Place III | Hayward Place

For me, I'm completely underwhelmed by this building. Especially if the title of the thread is "Millennium Place III", I would hope for another 500-foot tower. Not the stump they're building across...

I'll believe it when I see it. A Terminal E expansion has been in the works since "Logan 2000".

However, I see Massport's chance with American Airlines's bankruptcy. Given the fact that Boston is...
