Re: South Bay Center Expansion | Dorchester

There is a lot of potential for adjacent areas, too, if this style continues. South Bay could open up thousands of new residences.

Re: Regional Rail (including North-South Rail Link)

This is why the focus needs to be on an incremental approach, such as the method described in the TransitMatters white paper. There is no reason we can't start with alternative one and through phases...

Re: South Bay Center Expansion | Dorchester

I think the mishmash is a feature, not a bug.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I don't read it that way at all. I don't think Wu seriously expects her call to directly result in fare elimination. She is trying to move the overton window by making it a topic for public...

Re: Northern Avenue Bridge Fort Point Channel

Of the four presented in the second video, I like the second one far more than the others. It is modern, yet still referential to the original design.

Re: 3200 Washington St. | Egleston Sq. | Jamaica Plain

It can still be a bit dicey, but definitely trending toward better things. The entire Washington St. corridor between Columbus/Seaver and Forest Hills is undergoing a radical transformation. Already...

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

Interestingly, though, it does show the tunnel, labelled as Silver Line Way, it just doesn't identify it as a transit line.

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

The West Roxbury Orange Line station wouldn't be all that close to Route 128. The southward OLX would have to go farther to actually be considered a 128 terminus.

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

Will add my thanks for the info. I'm especially excited for the photo hosting and mobile site features.

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

The ROI would be a city in which people can easily and quickly move about from one place to another. Public transit efficacy can't be measured by traditional business metrics.

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Yes, I am guilty of some hyperbole. But as you well articulated in your previous post, we did the exact opposite in terms of tax policy from what should have happened. And what comes from that?...

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

That's actually exactly what I said. Our priorities for what is done with the wealth created by this economy is not for things like public transit. Instead it is going to the wallets of the yacht...

Re: Marine Wharf (Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites) | 660 Summer St | Seaport

Completely agree, whighlander. Not everything can or should glimmer with gold. Good neighborhoods offer a mix of architecture and price points. The seaport needs more that is geared toward lower...

Re: Cambridge Crossing (NorthPoint) | East Cambridge/Charlestown | Cambridge/Boston

I did an analysis recently that excluded Logan and City of Boston parks. I did not exclude the islands or cemeteries, so my number is still wrong. Using 700,000 for population, I came up with about...

Re: Readville Complex

The trailer park is slated to be replaced with a large apartment complex. I can't decide whether or not I favor the idea or want to push for historic landmark designation.

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

The answer is that the economy is in fact not great. It's great for some sectors, some people, but overall, it is functioning to serve a very small and elite minority. Public transit doesn't factor...

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Must be planning to test them on track 61. I wonder if that means the express track isn't sufficient capacity for the cars that are beginning to ship.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

They have begun testing them on the actual OL tracks. My son texted me a picture recently of one at Forest Hills. No passengers, but at least one train is running on operational tracks. I'm hoping to...

Re: T construction news

The Newton Centre example isn't really an example of an in station merchant in my opinion, as it's across the street. I'm not sure whether the MBTA even owns that building, though it probably did at...

Re: West Roxbury Developments

Re: Biking in Boston

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

I love the building design, always have. My critique was strictly for the incongruous sign.

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

Looks awful in my opinion. They just took the old sign and welded it on to a new building, but the font and style of that sign in no way works with the style for the building. I hope this is just a...
