Re: Alexandra Hotel Renovation | 1769 Washington St | South End

Yeah, I was thinking it looks an awful lot like 10 farnsworth.

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Tariffs do not appear to be a partisan issue anyways. It's more like people who see the negative impact (us) vs people who don't know and don't care.

But yeah, terrible time to be driving up...

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

I didn't realize "proto" was a part of this same project.

Re: South Bay Center Expansion | Dorchester

Probably to leave the option open to redevelop the parking lot.

Re: MXD | 145 Broadway/250 Binney | Kendall Square

Snoozefest is better than our usual response at this stage. What I want to know is when the residential portion starts.

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

I explained exactly why I think those choices are made. I asked why can't the cheap materials be used differently- the pseudo brick thing just cheapens the looks further (in the non-monetary sense)....

Re: Mission Hill (Re-)Development

Absolutely not the same building, but I really can't be outraged without knowing what kind of condition it was in before. At least there's still going to be an actual stone facade- something way too...

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

I'm with you on this one. It strikes me as a lazy attempt to make new buildings fit in with all the surrounding brick buildings. The value of those older buildings are the materials theirselves, not...

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

It sounds like he's just fantasizing to us while touching himself. Like sexting, only on a message board while talking about tall buildings.

Re: Whiskey Priest/Atlantic Beer Garden Redevelopment | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

I suppose, but let's say I come from local old money, and wanted to be in the city, I'd opt for a beautifully restored place in the back bay, and hiring service really isn't too difficult.

Re: Whiskey Priest/Atlantic Beer Garden Redevelopment | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

I'm guessing it's to appeal to "new money". Old money wears their designer labels as a discreet tag on the inside. Conspicuous consumption isn't that classy.

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

I wonder if it's supposed to look like a satin ribbon wrapped around the building? Which is sort of neat but god the up-close shots make it look cheap.

Re: East Boston Developments

Re: Residences at 399 Congress St (formerly Madison Seaport Hotel)

At least we are clearly in the "major global city" development tier. Even if we are super stumpy. You can't go tall here anyways.

Mind you, the example room is citizen m since we don't yet know what brand this will take on, if any.

Huh, can't say I've ever noticed any terracotta roofs in the area before, as seen in the foreground of this pic.
