Re: Scape Student Housing | 1252-1268 Boylston Street | Fenway

The operative word you wrote is 'near'. The truth is that you need a variance for the lion's share of new development in this city because the zoning does not respond to current market, community,...

Re: Scape Student Housing | 1252-1268 Boylston Street | Fenway

I just had a Level 3 conniption reading that article, and of course commented. It should take 'months' to green light a development proposal, not years. And the feedback from the planning office...

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

My morning rush hour commute on the orange line averages 12 mph from Wellington Station to Chinatown.

The green line B branch averages 6 mph to get from Back Bay to Packards Corner.

And the red...

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

Why doesn't the Silver Line show up as a Transit line on Google Maps' Transit layer?

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

Yeah, several of the newer buildings have included pet relief areas in their outdoor spaces. I recently toured Hub50 House (Hub on Causeway), and they have 1 of 3 outdoor terraces designed for that...

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 665 Commonwealth Avenue | BU Central

That is weird. I never saw underground parking spaces included in the PNF or presentations for this project either... just some surface spaces in the back alley reconfigured/removed (Laneway).

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

Literally every building in the Paris photo you shared is 6+ stories. I did a google street view of Rue de Tolbiac and found that most buildings along it were 5-8 stories (like the rest of Paris,...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Yes, I absolutely love the place and think overall it's worthy of the 5 star resort stamp. Having grown up in a resort town (Boca Raton) and spent a good deal of time/money traveling around the world...

Re: Ink Block (Boston Herald) | 300 Harrison Avenue | South End

FWIW, I interpreted "CHOICE" in the same vain as Urban Dictionary (https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Choice) defines it. (i.e. as an adjective, not a noun)

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

A little update: I've now been to the casino 4 or 5 times. I've joined friends from the area at different restaurants on-site and gotten a very good lay of the land. And I'm up! (for now) :)

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Over-priced, bland. I was with 3 others, two of whom have never been to the Wynn Buffet in Las Vegas.
Seafood = tasted good
Sushi = awful... embarrassingly awful.
Side dishes/vegetables = ???...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I live nearby and have gone twice. Hardly a sacrifice--the place is beautiful. My recommendation would be to look at the photos taken by professionals of the space--my personal photos don't look...

Re: Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

I believe closings have begun for the residences in the building; however, the retail and landscaping are still underway. But an unfinished product never stopped anyone on this forum from declaring a...

Re: MXD Residential Tower | 135 Broadway | Kendall Square

Is this a first for the region? I do not recall a building explicitly setting aside units for 'middle-income housing.' [JohnAKeith, I suspect you know the answer]

I think this is wonderful.

Re: Roxbury parcels 9 & 10 | Melnea Cass Blvd | Roxbury

Unless I'm mistaken, the "useless open space" you're referring to is the South Bay Harbor Trail. The trail provides a connection between the Southwest Corridor Park Trail and--ultimately--the Boston...

Re: East Boston Developments

What's the scuttlebutt on 301-303 Border Street (https://images1.loopnet.com/d2/UogUZoupME-lqmEqvMpz559EoMijqe7V2JntEmMlkQo/document.pdf)? I peek onto Loopnet occasionally and noticed this...
