Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Neat. Though I would fail them on the test as the left hand doors shouldn't have opened as there is no center platform.
But, that's why it's a test and not a revenue run.

Re: MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

^^^
Doesn't this have it's own thread?
This is not part of MIT's development.
This is a BP building.

Re: EXP | 795 Columbus Avenue | Northeastern University

Architect is Payette. Same architect as building 1.
The difference between University money and private money on the waterfront.

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

What does one mark things down to at the dollar store to draw customers?
Is it me or is an "Everything half off!" Sign at the dollar store seem absurd to anyone else?

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

I mean, in reality, there are many dual income households where each adult is making $150-200k each. I'm not one of them, but there are many.

Two people cohabiting and making $200k each could...

Re: Parcel JK | Cambridge Crossing | Cambridge

Wondering why the exhaust stacks stayed since the building went office vs. lab?
Maybe there is still plans to include some, or to be ready for the future.
Are there actually high plume lab exhaust...

Re: MXD II | 325 Main St. | Kendall Square

For now.
Is that necessarily a good thing?
If they can fill 300k SF with a single tenant, why not build 400k (if upzoning further were approved)?

Question is, are they building to the height of...

Re: MXD II | 325 Main St. | Kendall Square

Fair points. Would that we didn't have to deal with antiquated zoning, but it is here and a real cost adder/hindrance.

Re: MXD II | 325 Main St. | Kendall Square

On the other hand, one of my points was very valid for Kendall. Most the developers here are capable of getting financing/able to build with a much smaller first tenant. ARE, BioMed, MITIMCo, BP,...

Re: MXD II | 325 Main St. | Kendall Square

To the point of scaling mentioned earlier, this is true, but not that cut and dry.

While yes, scaling labs gets expensive quick, scaling office space, not as much.
There are ranges where costs...

Re: MXD II | 325 Main St. | Kendall Square

Why do so many of these posts insinuate that you need a single tenant to fill the building?

If you can house the tenant in a 20 storey building, then build a 30 storey building to lease the...

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

First they need to remove the friggin metal barricade running down the center island that would make that retail a pain in the ass to get to from waterside.

Re: ACKS | Alexander Center Kendall Sq. | 50 Binney | E Cambridge

Yeah. They're not going to be the first developer to build tall here.
BP is building taller, and they're building office space. The market is so hot here for both, every developer who builds short...

Re: ACKS | Alexander Center Kendall Sq. | 50 Binney | E Cambridge

50 Binney is 100% office space. Designed as office, with no lab infrastructure. This was Sanofi's HQ office building. So office is going for $100 bucks a foot. We're moving our office because ours...

Re: ACKS | Alexander Center Kendall Sq. | 50 Binney | E Cambridge

Sorry. Added the quote above....
Not understanding why this is evidence that building tall is not in a developers best interest. Unless I fully missed some sarcasm.
