Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

Sell off basically all of Reservoir Yard and use the funds towards a Needham Branch with a new, slightly larger carhouse facility at Needham Jct. If any property is kept at Reservoir, it would...

Re: Big Dig Tunnel--

I don't know what exactly weigh station ops currently are like, but more automation of weigh stations sounds pretty brilliant. Even if it all it does is halve the staffing requirement, it would mean...

Re: One Project, Only One

Regional Rail (includes NSRL). Simply the single most important project I can imagine right now.

Re: North Station, Charles River Draw, & Tower A

The T is planning on ordering more flats for the next order. Their reasoning is that it is better for ADA mobility throughout the train, particularly in an emergency. The benefit that they haven't...

Re: North Station, Charles River Draw, & Tower A

I highly doubt the B&M or any successor would be the land owner, anyway. The property was shed when the railroad was flailing to escape bankruptcy and rid itself of as much property taxes as possible.

Re: Big Dig Tunnel--

From what I read somewhere, the driver was claiming to have made the same run with the same type of load multiple times. Perhaps this load was a little taller for some reason, but he assumed it was...

Re: Boston - Most Embarrassing Blight That Tourists See

How about 'Boston - Most Embarrassing Blight That Tourists Smell'?

Walk the North End on a hot summer day and you can smell the sewer system. What specifically causes that? Is there an "easy" fix?

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

Re: Kenmore Square North

In fact, it shouldn't be the Citgo sign. Do a facadectomy at this location, allow a taller building (since we won't have to worry about blocking the sign, either) to recoup the costs, and replace the...

Are you referring to the 1st and last pictures? Because you quoted the entire post.

I don't think the 1st one looks too bad, especially on that blank section of wall. The last one, the entire face...

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

Is The Hub still office-heavy, or has it shifted a bit? The OP said 600k sq ft for office space, more square footage than for any other use, and which at just under 175 sq ft/job means 3,500 office...

Re: North-South Rail Link

I'm all for an F Line, too. I think it would be hard to pull off both at the same exact time, though. Which is probably what would be necessary to avoid appearing as a loss of transit.
