Re: The New Office Thread

Google announced $13 billion in office and data center expansion and construction in the coming year, an increase over the $9 billion spent last year, and Boston/Cambridge is marked for "New office...

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Well said, can you expand on the authenticity aspect? How does a new building/urban area in 201x/2019/202x gain authenticity? I remember there was a bit of discussion on this several months ago about...

Re: Crazy Airport Pitches

Gonna toss in my proposal from a couple years ago, just to add fuel to the fire. Definitely would never happen, but kills a couple birds with one stone. [to save me from being scorched: the runway...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Correct, they lost power for the signals system, and trains were still operational (though other systems also don't have power and stations are pitch black). They switched over to manual signals as...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

There's a substation accessible through Government Center, I believe. Unclear if that's the source of the issue

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

What's the rationale behind an 11am parade? What if it were pushed back to, say, 2pm with additional trains running at peak frequencies later into the morning? Would lessen the burden on the earlier...

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

This is true, and maybe (just maybe) Boston's North Star for Kenmore Square and Fenway will eventually not be a gasoline company's sign.

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

I really appreciate the design, but about every other time I look at the head-on view, I have to agree with Data. They shouldn't have gone wider at the top. Isn't that a design principle you learn...

Re: Kenmore Sq

That's CBT's design.

Looks like a sizeable road diet. Obviously we need more details but looks promising, based off the tweets in the other thread.

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

One thing I would like to commend the architects on is the amount of eye-level renders they have continued to include with every iteration. While it's still a small amount, it's more relative to...

Re: Kenmore Sq

Interested to hear how this is taking design inspiration from Times Square. Regardless, I'm not concerned this will come out bad. Gang seems to have never failed in my book.

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

Ugh. Those provided some much needed shade during the summer months. And they looked really nice.

Re: MXD II | 325 Main St. | Kendall Square

That's what I'm hoping Volpe holds in store. Where are we at with that? SOM is designing the new federal facility, anything else? Hoping to see that start to move soon, as would MIT, who sunk $750...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

And maintaining these is a nightmare. They don't make parts for these anymore, and very few people know what parts are needed/how to fix them.

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

That's one of my favorite parts, too. It's so well planned how they currently have it that you'll be able to walk out of the Hub on Causeway entrance, look down Canal Street, and the Custom House...

Re: Mass. General Hospital says it plans large addition

Yes, otherwise they would've gone tall.

Considering they're already pushing that the (currently approximate) cost is worth the investment and providing rebuttals to "expected arguments" that this...

Re: Mass. General Hospital says it plans large addition

Is this another cry for more height? You'll never get a tall hospital. Ever. It doesn't make sense in any way shape or form. Staff need to be able to move quickly and efficiently. That means no 40...
