Re: The St Regis Residences (former Whiskey Priest site) | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

I wonder what the price per sq foot of these developments would be if there were still pools of human feces floating around in the harbor? I wonder if it even would have worth it to build them or if...

Prediction:

Whatever gets built there will be better than a parking lot and worse than everything else around it.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Maybe I'm being picky but I am curious as why it is taking longer than expected.

Did they miscalculate how long it would take, if so, what specifically did they miscalculate? Did they forget to...

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

What we need is a Boston resident who cares deeply about the built environment and is well versed in architecture and urbanism to apply to be on the board.

Re: The New Retail Thread

It's a 192 year old restaurant that has served local cuisine in the same space for it's entire existence.

I think we have different criteria for 'authentic'.

I unabashedly love 125 Summer. If you are not looking up, you would never know it was a facadectomy.

Re: The New Retail Thread

How much say does the city have in how the Market is run? Do they just sign the lease over to Ashkenazy and say 'do your thing' or can/should they step in with more guidance as to how the Market...

Apparently they don't own the lot. I imagine the rent was pretty high for all that space.

Probably multiple points of failure here. Sucks.
