Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

Stupid question. Are these columns stone clad around steel posts or is this building actually masonry load bearing?

Re: The New Office Thread

Hmm, I wonder if they have already ruled out Boston for HQ2 and this buy might be a consolation prize?

Re: Constellation Center Cambridge

I agree with you but everything you have just described is, at best, circumstantial evidence. Unfortunately you would need a paper trail proving that he had no intention to build his concert center....

Re: Open Thread

Hey does anyone have (or know of) an overlay map that shows the street patterns of the West End pre- and post-urban renewal? I'm pretty sure I've seen one before, but my Google skills are failing me.

Re: North Washington St Bridge

Hmm...What if they built a sort of raised rail bed? So that passengers cars could travel underneath. It may sound crazy but it might work!

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

I hate gold in interior design. It was tacky in the 80's and it just as tacky now.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

I never really under how how walking 200 yards from Department Y to Department X is that much easier than taking the elevator 4 flights.

Re: Wynn Everett Casino | Everett

I still think it's possible to exude opulence and wealth in a way that isn't tacky and dated. This place looks like the Atrium Mall and the old Copley Place had an unwanted baby.

Re: Wynn Everett Casino | Everett

If you think that's bad, get a load of this. They used to keep paper copies locked in a box that you needed to put actual money into if you wanted a copy. It was crazy.

It's not a major restoration, but sometimes taking care of the small things makes a big difference.

Re: Ames Webster Mansion

Except that in order to covert it to condos, I'm sure a lot of those original features will need to be removed.

It's still better than letting the place rot though.

Re: One Post Office Square Makeover and Expansion

So, we are going from old and uninspired to new and uninspired.

With perhaps a slight downgrade in energy efficiency (masonry vs glass cladding)?

Yay?
