Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

I disagree. I think the marquee and the vertical signage already provide plenty of visual interest without resorting to gimmicky tricks like banners. Iím not suggesting they need to change anything...

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

The banners seem like an unnecessary attempt to decorate the blank walls. I would rather they are left blank.

Re: BU Development Thread

If anything, it speaks to the way in which the university views how modern-day students interact and what attracts potential students to a university. BU is spending $32 million on the build out of...

Re: Crossroads at Kenmore | 560 Commonwealth Ave | Kenmore Square

I think this is a brilliant reconstruction of Kenmore. By pulling this building closer into the center of the square, it tightens up all the edges jutting off in different directions, and creates a...

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

The treatment on the top floors was also changed from having the heavier red louvres encase it in exchange for a translucent appearance. That really helps to avoid the appearance of being top heavy.

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

Thereís no brick in the facade, which is a positive. BUís brick buildings are generally uninspired. Itís encouraging to see BU move away from overusing brick. All recent development on campus has...

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

Iíd argue it does. Take a closer look at the ground floor plans, which show active plazas on the west and south sides of the building, a pedestrian passageway on the east side, and a courtyard on the...

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 665 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

It has been a few years since I had my permit, however mine was specifically for Bay State Rd and I remember it did not apply to West Campus because that was an Allston permit.

That does not answer my question as to if B&N will be joining BU further up the road.

No it isnít. The BU bookstore has resided within a Barnes and Noble in Kenmore.

This is pretty much how they layout the campus on the maps.

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 700 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

Iím not sure I understand what this even means.
However, observing that youíre someone who thrives on sweet nothings, does it really matter?

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 700 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

The renderings are low quality and kind of dull. I donít think thatís helping to provide a realistic view of how this building will appear.

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 700 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

Itís an academic building - not a mall.
Also, itís replacing a parking lot.

Re: BU Development Thread

I really donít think itís going to resemble a parking garage at all. If you look at the closer up renderings, itís clear that the base is a mix of glass, wood panels, and a brise soleil.
