Re: Washington Village | Andrew Square | South Boston

Just pointing out that the three year comment wasn't entirely accurate and that no one knows exactly why it took so long from the date of approval, though environmental remediation - an absolutely...

Re: Washington Village | Andrew Square | South Boston

I don't think it's actually taken three years. This was approved by the BRA two years ago (August of 2016), and environmental work began more than a year ago. Others are no doubt better informed than...

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

I'll split the difference and say I actually like these buildings, and brutalism in general, but yeah, the people who built this stuff and reconfigured this area were the mid-century white elite, and...

Re: Midtown Hotel redevelopment | 220 Huntington Avenue | Back Bay

I like it, too. I worked across the street for years and always enjoyed its presence.

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

This seems like a post hoc ergo propter hoc argument to me. Is there any evidence to support this besides correlation?

From what I can tell, the evidence actually points the other way.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

I'm not trying to ratchet it up. It's hate speech. He said being a trans person is as ridiculous as choosing to identify as a polka dot zebra.

I never called them slaves, and I wasn't talking about construction jobs. Just jobs. And how have those been doing?

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

You could also say the current system is organized around theft of the value workers create. And you could easily characterize the corruption described by TheRifleman as theft. The only distinction...

Point 1: I'm responding in kind, chief. You insulted me several times, so I've given up on politeness.

You've consistently misread the people disagreeing with you and you continually deploy strawmen yourself.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

You're talking about "logic" and "reality" but I don't think you understand either of them. There's no law guaranteeing anyone a place to live (not even ownership trumps eminent domain), but there's...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

More housing. Well, duh. But that's only half the problem.

Yes, there should be a lot more housing.

No, people shouldn't accepts tens of thousands of well-moneyed workers moving into their...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

If that estimate is even half right HQ2 will be a disaster for hundreds of thousands of people here.

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

The way to do option 3 is to spread it out over the whole area, putting affordable housing in virtually every development with a substantial number of units. We'd need a lot more than the current...

Re: BHA Charlestown/Bunker Hill redevelopment

Yeah but his point - and there was a point - was that the analogy wasn't clarifying because the terms used weren't properly understood by the people using them.

Don't want to speak for someone...

Re: General Electric HQ | 244-284 A Street | Fort Point

Is that a bad render (the canvas from the site hanging on the fence), or are they re-cladding the side with faux-brick?

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

I find the desire to win this competition baffling. Why would we want to massively increase the number of upper-middle class and rich residents in an area that's already starved for housing?
