Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

I'm extremely envious of everyone who has these incredibly nice working environments. I guess that's what I get for working for the federal government I guess. The stuff I look at all day is just...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

It is, but I think Boston could do ok doing one moderately big project at a time. Like finish glx, move on to red to blue connector. All while doing a boat load of smaller improvements across the...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

So I'm guessing from the lack of angry ranting in here the T survived the snow, ice, and extreme cold of the past few days. So congrats, unless that's premature and you're all stuck on a disabled...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

They aren't doing any of that cheaply. I think the big dig traumatized multiple generations, people are hesitant to commit to any large project that could have similar ballooning costs. My childhood...

Re: 60 Kilmarnock St | Fenway

You really sort of could add ground level retail at that rate, as long as suburban style retail keeps dying out like it is.

Sounded like a Boston accent with a speech impediment or an outsider doing a terrible job of mimicking the accent.



Yes, that's what it sounded like!

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

Re: MIT Museum/Boeing | 314 Main St. | Kendall Square

Wtf?! They are an extremely conservative lender and their current strength might be owing to the fact that they were relatively unscathed in the last recession.

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

Yeah, I find it surprising that the ultra-luxury crowd in a global city like boston wouldn't at least recognize the name.

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

The labor shortage and tariffs on basic construction materials probably has no one in too much of a hurry to break ground on their projects.
