Re: McMansion Hell

Step 1: bid the $3.5M asking price, less the cost of 6 tons of TNT. Step 2: Sell newly-vacant land to Beton Brut. Step 3: Profit??!

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

Curious what people here think was the louder, more consequential "No" - Boston to the Olympics bid, or NYC to Amazon?

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

My impression is that the NYC technology scene is to a large extent centered around froufrou retail and consumer goods startups that give recent college grads the opportunity to hustle and hipsterize...

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

^ He's referring to NYC. Plans still on for Virginia and Nashville (I didn't actually know Nashville was ever part of HQ2...?) And no plans to reopen an HQ2 search.

Re: Silver Line to Chelsea

So the 1+HOV configuration is used in the direction of rush-hour traffic?

Re: Crazy Airport Pitches

Stick, I want to thank you or a really great idea. I think the NIMBY-nay-sayers are overestimating the resistance this would generate, assuming a great transit plan were put forward - for example,...

Re: Walpole Center Developments

Small tangent... what do people call the Route 1 corridor towns, as a region? Sometimes it's included as South Shore, but I think that's really pushing it. It's also clearly not Metrowest. I'm pretty...

Re: Walpole Center Developments

Thanks, Dave. Of all the towns on the Route 1 corridor, Walpole has one of the more vibrant and intact centers, with some funky little businesses that add a great deal of flavor. I love seeing it get...

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

I'm very confused about the new traffic pattern they're proposing. Can someone ELI5?

Re: Kenmore Sq

When they say "presenting a dramatic proposal" is this a real developer-backed proposal to the city, or more like a public exhibition of an idea?

Re: Continuum | Barry's Corner | Allston

It blows my mind that this is the same windswept, empty intersection I commuted through for years.

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

Sorry, I clarified in an edit above. To expand:

The western end of SFR stays - from the IHOP to Western Ave. Eastbound SFR drivers coming from the west are, at that point, connected straight onto...

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

As was said above, simply remove SFR - everything east of Western/River.

Tie it in to the Pike at the Allston/Cambridge interchange - eastbound to eastbound, westbound to westbound. Arlington or...

Itchy, good to see you back here.

I agree completely. We were in the area and stopped in for the “Blink” light/sound show that happens every half hour. The PR they put out about this makes it...

Re: The Boulevard (née The Times/Littlest Bar) | 110 Broad St | Downtown

The preserved building reads to me like the “Up” house - they wanted to bulldoze it but they couldn’t so they canyoned around it. Kind of sad. I think that’s how it will read to most people walking...
