Re: North End Piazza on The Greenway | 198 Hanover Street | North End

Well, the North End is one of the oldest areas of Boston, it was almost completely built out prior to the Italian immigration wave.

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

I like the hotel portion. The rest? Well, I'm glad they preserved the old office buildings. That's a win.

Re: Rose Kennedy Greenway

At some point signmakers are going to realize that they can do amazing things with LEDs (aside from billboard-style signs) and I can't wait for the next 'neon age'.

Re: One Bromfield | 1 Bromfield Street | Downtown

I am hoping that this is somewhere on the BID's to-do list. These sort of cooperative engineering challenges are, I hope, one of the reason the BID exists.

Re: MassMutual | 10 Fan Pier Blvd | Fan Pier Parcel E | Seaport

Just take out the pier directly below the ICA.

Re: General Boston Discussion.

It was brought up a few times. It's a classic example of why you don't (literally) carve your city planning ideas in stone.

Re: Longfellow Bridge update

Re: One Bromfield | 1 Bromfield Street | Downtown

If that corner was occupied by a non-chain, local restaurant, bar, coffee shop, etc it would be one of the most beloved corners in the city.

Re: One Bromfield | 1 Bromfield Street | Downtown

You are confusing tenants with buildings. Tenants can and will change. Once you tear down a prewar, human-scaled building, it's not coming back.

Re: One Bromfield | 1 Bromfield Street | Downtown

No. For fuck's sake, no. That was literally the worst part of this overall terrible project.
