Re: Tremont Crossing | Roxbury

I believe that Parcel P-3 is a Northeastern owned parking lot that had long been intended for a hotel. If so then Northeastern wants to build another residence hall on the site.

Re: BU Development Thread

BU Dental School used irregular fenestration decades before it became fashionable. That was due to adding a vertical addition 3 years after the original was built.

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

I saw a picture of that site circa 1960 online recently. I will try and find it and link to it.

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

There was a gas station on the corner. The other half of the lot was a ghastly drive through restaurant with a winged roof. The latter was demolished to build a Burger King, which was actually a...

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

Is it possible that the other half of the ARC may be built at a future date? I heard that the MBTA/Amtrak said never.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

It seems that you have never been at this part of the Northeastern campus. The elevator structure is separate from but adjacent to the library. People using the elevator do not enter the library.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

At least BU is keeping in line with its position as a Center of Excellence for Bad Architecture. Their planned Data Science monstrosity will cement that standing for decades.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

BU and BC also started out as very average commuter schools. They made that transition to residential campuses a generation before Northeastern did.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

That is the expanded and rebuilt Carter Field, a joint project between Northeastern and the City of Boston. You must be looking at Google maps because it was completed last September and is very...

No evidence. That's why I posted it as a question to ponder.

Re: Whittier Choice Neighborhood | 1158 Tremont Street | Roxbury

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

This makes me wish that the MBTA had allowed Northeastern to build the other half of the ARC.

Seeing the wooden handrails in detail confirms for me that they are long term temporary barriers. ...

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

Can't imagine them being permanent. Although given that the EXP will start construction next winter they may last until it is completed.

The walls are high to prevent people from tossing stuff,...

Re: EXP | 795 Columbus Avenue | Northeastern University

And another communal atrium!

Whittier Street project is being rebuilt. If Tremont Crossing ever gets built that will be a great neighborhood.

Re: EXP | 795 Columbus Avenue | Northeastern University

It is a fraternal twin to ISEC. A different unique design that makes a powerful statement.

A hell of a lot better than that stack of books monstrosity that is the future BU data science building.

Re: Emerson College - Little Building Addition + Renovation | 80 Boylston St | Downto
