Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

I think this is good news. Its good to know that someone who contributed a lot to the discussion and obviously loves the city will play a crucial role in moving us forward.

However, Briv, if you...

Wrong, the "community" predates Briv. Don't preach if you don't know the history

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

This is a very sad day. This not-for-profit 20 year old argument about kinda tall buildings should never have been sold to anyone.

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

No that is just to keep you from getting hit by falling debris. Seriously, they just let it rot. If it was a private owner I couldn't imagine they would be allowed to just fence it off.

Re: Dorchester Developments

I generally like the design but building right up to the property line in the back with giant windows overlooking the backyard behind you is a dickish maneuver

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

Oh, I didn't know that. So I guess it's okay to just remove the dam on the Neponset in Lower Mills that they claim will unleash massive amounts of pollution into the salt Marsh. Darn those scientists...

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

The "muck" is your grandparents' poo. Not to get gross but we are only 30 years removed from human feces washing up on this beach, so I personally wouldn't swim there

Re: Mission Hill (Re-)Development

I would offer that the structure that was torn down was also far superior and much more appropriate

Re: Tremont Crossing | Roxbury

The police are in a bad situation regarding traffic enforcement. There aren't enough hours in the day or the manpower to stop every vehicle doing something wrong. And If they pulled over a car for a...

Re: The Whitney Hotel (née John Jeffries House) | 142-170 Charles Street | Beacon Hil

So you disagree and that's fine, but I was not expecting the avant-garde. I will say it is better than a parking lot but a bit of a let-down considering how prominent the parcel is, how long it has...

Re: The Whitney Hotel (née John Jeffries House) | 142-170 Charles Street | Beacon Hil

I should love it; it checks all the boxes. If it was built 25 years ago I would have considered it a triumph. However, Charles Circle has come a long way since then so I will share my initial...

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

It's worth repeating: if any company wants to build here we should make it as easy as possible to do so, but no more tax breaks. The market should be picking winners and losers, not politicians. We...

Re: Our Lady of Good Voyage | Seaport Sq Parcel H | 55 - 57 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Re: The St Regis Residences (former Whiskey Priest site) | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

I wonder too. Clearly the Seaport is successful because it is not located next to an open sewer. I believe the Big Dig and the harbor clean up are both the major factors in the Seaport's success

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

Correct, it is supply and demand in a booming land poor city, not the modest hourly wage of the "chambermaid." Expensive houses and hotel rooms is a First World problem caused by the city's success....

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

I question if that hourly wage is true. However, $28 an hour will not buy a house in a city with a median home price of $650,000. How very Republican of you, blame the working person for price of...

It would be great to see this lot filled. It has been vacant since at least the Kevin White administration. I wonder how much foot traffic the new retail expects to see

Re: Downtown Crossing

Seaport Blvd. If Burlington, MA was on the water that's what they would name the main drag. It's lazy and awful. How about South Oliver Street?
