Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

You're assuming all 8 who are caught simply pay the fine without appealing or ignoring the citation altogether. That's not an assumption I'd be willing to make. BART is learning this the hard way...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Not only that but surface parking at Sullivan is almost always available (I’ve never seen it close to full) and cheap, so it’s not as if more drivers can’t use it already. The issue with Sullivan...

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

There's zero chance they keep any of the facade of the existing building, is there? It's not a killer loss from a preservation standpoint, and this project will be a net win for the area/city, but I...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I was pleasantly surprised by parking prices. They could be higher, but downtown Boston prices makes sense and should hopefully encourage people to take alternate transit options.

Also, I was in...

Re: The New Bedford Thread

I wish it was across N. 2nd replacing the St. Anne's Credit Union building/parking lot, but this is a good development if it ever happens.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

It's a PR softball for him, so of course he's going to say something along those lines. It's not a polarizing topic or a controversial stance (everyone is frustrated by the T issues) so he can come...

Re: Suffolk Downs Redevelopment

Thanks. That's what I thought too - Block 8 at Assembly is a $160 Million project with 500 units (https://cranshaw.com/portfolio-page/assembly-row-block-8/). Or $320k per unit. I can't imagine why it...

Re: Suffolk Downs Redevelopment

Beton, I know you've been advocating for more affordable housing for this development. What do you think about this quote from HYM?



My layperson thoughts are as follows:

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

I know this is a minor suggestion in the grand scheme of things, but can we set that ArchBoston Facebook page posting privacy to "members of the group only?" Right now, all posts are public. So if...

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

It's not the clubs themselves, it's the loss of a unique, activated public space that's the problem. The businesses themselves come and go with time - sometimes for the better and sometimes for the...

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

Reposting this. I thought the garage would come down over Congress as part of the construction for the office tower. These recent posts about the cantilevering sort of change things. Anyone have any...

Re: Amtrak / Regional Rail Discussion Thread

Dumb question, would the equipment for this proposed route be Amtrak's? That's the assumption I had clicking the link, and there is some evidence that that would be the case in the article but...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

That's rich. Yes, exactly, you'll have to leave your car and take a bus and train. That's precisely the point.

Re: Logan Flight Additions

It seems to me (also not an expert) like a very significant statement of commitment to Boston. It also is telling about their strategy - beef up TATL routes as well as feeders domestically. another...

Re: Rock Row (née The Ridge, née Dirigo Plaza) | Westbrook, ME

Wow. I had a friend who posted on Facebook, "Is that Rock Row music I'm hearing in Deering Center?" and I rolled my eyes and thought 'no way'. Apparently she was right.

Re: Uber & Lyft as a source of congestion

There are a lot of ways to interpret that information, but one of the key takeaways for me is that our mass transit networks aren't even adequate enough to lure people out of cars in spite of...

Interesting indeed. There's already a brand new comedy club in Union (at Bow Market), so I'm wondering what the demand is for a place like this? For a while, Comedy Clubs were a dying breed around...
