Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

I haven't seen any renders which look realistic yet. MT had better renders before that one was built than what we've seen here so far. Regardless, it's been tweaked to the hilt, and this is what...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

^BosDevelop is spot-on. MGM hypothetically could sell Springfield and take this over-if it came to that. There aren't that many alternatives. Hopefully the gaming commission will find that the...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

^ Brilliant idea..... it also looks like the perfect backdrop for a movie. Just hide the "Encore" on top, and you have: Dr. Evil's headquarters, with the adjacent factory producing all manner of...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I would never have thought that a hotel tower could make a set of smokestacks cool looking. Maybe I'm crazy, but I think the new Encore has actually accomplished that. (at least from the angle in...

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

^That just shows how transformative this project is for the area. I've got to say that I'm more excited about this project than just about any other right now. I also think "Hub-on-Causeway" nickname...

Rumor has it that spinach will be a featured buffet item at Encore Boston Harbor. (Popeye demands it)

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I think the custom boat concept is a brilliant way to contribute towards making it part of the "resort" feel. Even though it's just a boat ride,(plus a convenient option from that area) I think it...

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

That's puzzling...my niece in Lynn has "Yankees suck" on her bumper. I wonder how she got up on that Hub on Causeway beam to post that message?* :)

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

I think Beton Brut is right. It's already starting to take on the less-than-ideal look of the Pierce tower. The random multi-color accents cheapen it. But I'll withhold final judgement until it's...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I wonder if they decided to cancel the curved escalators? (shown framing Popeye in the second set of Stick's pictures.) The first pic here shows a curved staircase, and it curves in the opposite...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

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

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

If you check out Gensler's (office tower architect) website, they are still showing the previous design (with the spire/antenna) It seems odd they wouldn't have updated to the new iteration of the...

Re: Harbor Towers sue to stop 600' Central Wharf Tower

Can I sue Harbor Towers for violating Chapter 91 because THEIR towers are blocking my access to the harbor, or has the statute of limitations already run out? (sarcasm)

You're right, tobyjug. It may have to be called an underwater groundfront garage. :-)
