Re: Garage Nightclub Redevelopment | 20 Linden Street | Allston

I know, it's only 10 minutes or so to Boston Landing or the B line (and I think a similar distance to west station when it's built), but if you're trying to convince people to use public...

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

I don't see the problem. This is essentially a partially enclosed plaza. I'd prefer the wide open entrance to a glass door.

Re: How Tall Are Boston's Buildings and Should They Be Taller?

Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't make him "holier-than-thou."



I'd say this is a straw man, but you actually seem to believe it. I have not seen this sentiment on aB. I think any...

Re: Garage Nightclub Redevelopment | 20 Linden Street | Allston

I understand why the developer wants the parking. It's the nimbys pushing for more that bothers me.

People will probably think I'm crazy, but if I were king of Boston I'd put a commuter rail stop...

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

So now I'm curious how people differentiate BU Central and BU East. I've always just looked at the campus as East and West, separated by the large dead area/pike/bridge.

I know there is a Central...

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

Fenway?

Personally I just consider this stretch "BU."

Re: Kenmore Square North

Has anyone here considered applying for a seat on the commission?

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

Yes, I nearly qualified this statement. This obviously is a much larger problem and some sculpture will do little to fix it, but I do believe that challenging the perception that Boston is a mix of a...

Re: Mixed Use Complex | 345 Harrison Ave | South End

^ I think I've been spoiled by the common use of pavers lately. The ground here looks awful.

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

I think they're fun. They obviously lack the permanence of the artists you reference, but I don't see that as a problem. There is room for both.

Kids will love them, and while cities have largely...

Re: Allston-Brighton Developments

This is an oversimplification. Colossal order can certainly make a building look shorter and is too often used to do so, but on this building I believe the groupings serve a higher purpose. It would...

Re: BU Development Thread

I haven't decided how I feel about the building as a whole (and likely won't until it is built), but I love the "ramp." Personally, I'd refer to this as stairs. I understand there is some similarity...

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Shit, I thought that was just a bad fever dream.

My opinion of this building will come down to how the lobby functions.

Re: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

Oh good, we're each going to opine upon what we believe qualifies as a theater. This is sure to be an insightful and enriching discussion.

Re: Motor Mart Tower | 201 Stuart Str. | Park Sq | Boston

Maybe not the right place for this, but a couple related question: What is the ridership of the commuter rail for non-commuting? Also, what percentage of commuter rail riders own cars?

Re: Downtown Crossing

Thanks.



I would literally prefer a parking lot to this building. At least it would expose the courthouse.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I've never seen the inside of the Wynn hotels in Vegas, but this looks a lot like the Bellagio inside.
