Re: East Cambridge / Infill and Small Projects

Thanks for those pics Beeline. Does anyone know what this structure is? I've noticed it from the Leverett Circle bridge. It's being built here...

Re: Old Boston Edison Plant | Summer St | South Boston

I don't live in Southie so I don't have a dog in the fight, but I get the resident's concern. When Massport wanted to expand Conley, Southie pols got an agreement that they needed to move the haul...

Re: Back Bay parking lot sells for 40 million

Thanks TMAC & Stellar. Maybe I'm way underestimating the resale value.

Re: Rose Kennedy Greenway

Does anyone know if the trellises at the North End Parks were supposed to have vines grow over them? Seems like that would be the goal, but I've never seen any effort to make it happen.

Re: Back Bay parking lot sells for 40 million

That price seems crazy. It's a 14,000 SF lot. Let's say they get an FAR of 4 (base zoning is probably 2), that means they can put up 56,000 GSF. Call it 80% efficient - that works out to roughly...

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

Does anyone know what's going on with the black steel framing behind the construction stairs? It looks like falsework, but I can't figure out what it's holding up.

Re: North Washington St Bridge

Those are EPS blocks (expanded polystyrene). They are lightweight but can take a load. My company built a 20'-tall retaining wall out of them during the Whittier Bridge reconstruction because it...

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

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

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

Perhaps they didn't want to do something fun and memorable. After all, if they did that, the public might actually utilize the park. Adding to maintenance costs and reducing the residents' privacy....

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Sounds like they're basically recreating the lobby at Atlantic Wharf. A nice space but hardly a place that welcomes in the public.

Re: Charlie Card/MBTA Fare Replacement system

Thanks for the info HelloBostonHi. Any idea what's going on with the procurement delays? I understand RFPs were supposed to go out to the short-listed bidders months ago.

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

^My lord that render shows a terrible plan. They would have effectively privatized most of the new open space by confining it to private courtyards.

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

I don't understand why we should expect this traffic pattern to succeed where Sullivan Square fails. It's basically the same design, right? And in Sullivan Square there are far fewer pedestrians to...

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

Strange list. They list Jim Beam, but it was bought by a conglomerate a long time ago. Then they list a soap retailer but don't list Union Oyster House.

Re: The Ropewalk | 5th Street | Charlestown Navy Yard

The odd dimensions and the historical requirements made this a tough building to redevelop. I think I even remember reading that they had to keep the RR tracks in the new floors of the residential...
