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

I'm willing to believe that BB may have meant, "...good urbanism and good architecture are distinct concepts, though they are deeply intermingled with eachother...."

Re: Marriott Moxy Hotel | 240 Tremont Street (Parcel P-7A) | Theater District

Maybe (hopefully?) it will taper towards less green and more blue as the panel install moves upwards toward the top of the building?

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Ok. I'm no expert here.

But the A380 wasn't competing with the 737. It was competing with the 777, mostly. And a 777 can give you almost 400 pax on 2 engines. There have been 2,000 orders for...

Re: General Electric HQ (Phase 1 - Necco Buildings Reno) | 244-284 A Street | Fort Po

Wow.

Relieved that - at this point - looks GE is not going to leave the state & city holding the bag.

But mostly my reaction is that this outcome would have been completely inconceivable -...

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

^ Yeah and at this point the idea of a 'tech capital' is an anachronism. 'Technology' has permeated all industries and elements of the economy.

Now - a lot of people use 'tech' as a shorthand for...

Re: Volpe Transportation Center Development | Kendall Sq | Cambridge

I think it's a vast overstatement to say that Binney is an urban disaster. Maybe 10 years ago, but not today - and it definitely has the potential to be even better in the future.

Re: Crazy Airport Pitches

Re: Crazy Airport Pitches
