Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Parts of it are a carbon copy of the Wynn in Vegas and other parts are unique. For example the hallway rendering is basically a copy/paste from the Vegas casino, while the main entrance with the...

Re: 60 Kilmarnock St | Fenway

Depends how luxury the trim/amenity package is. I'd guess somewhere in the range of $1200/sqft, so ~$750k for a 1br and ~$1M for a 2br. Currently the Fenway market is around $1000/sqft for nice,...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Usually there are only 2 bathrooms at the back of the plane for ~160 people. The wait can get really long and the bathrooms can get pretty nasty, especially on an overnight flight when everyone will...

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

Entry level business analysts get $55k-65k at my company. We have somewhere in the range of 500-1000 of them in our Boston office. Also, these are run-of-the-mill business/finance graduates from a...

Re: The New Retail Thread

I've complained before about the lack of higher-end bars in Fenway, especially compared to the relative abundance of sports bars and college bars. With Nathalie having opened recently and Fool's...

Re: Julie Hall | Brookline Ave | Emanuel College | Fenway

The same could be said about almost any building in the world. Unless it's some architectural masterpiece or a soviet-era concrete bloc, people generally don't care what it looks like on the outside....

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

So when someone goes and shoots up a school, it's also the government's fault for not having stricter gun control... right? Don't blame the shooter, blame the government.

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

This is a bad analogy because if you steal my car I don't have a car anymore. There would be actual negative consequences for me.

Compared to this photographer who has had literally no negative...

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

Agreed. It's like that woman in LA who yells at kids selling candy because they don't have a street vendor permit. Who cares, even if it might be technically illegal?

From an ethical standpoint, he never claimed it was his and he left the watermark on the photo. Nor is he using it for personal gain. I don't see what the issue is and why you feel the need to call...

Re: The New Retail Thread

Those are all great spots to have a drink, but they're primarily restaurants. Though they do have bar areas it's not the same as a dedicated bar IMO.

Re: The New Retail Thread

I'd define a dive bar as:

- Cheap drinks
- Limited selection
- No-frills/run down decor
- Bar service only
- Regulars

In that sense dive bars and college bars are not mutually exclusive. ...

Re: The New Retail Thread

I could devote a fridge to all the mixers, liquers, fruits and bitters that would be required to make fancy cocktails. I could install a wine cellar in my basement storage unit. I could install a...

Re: The New Retail Thread

This is all just IMO of course, but I don't really see the appeal of dive bars. If I wanted to drink cheap booze I would just buy something from the grocery store and drink it at my place. I like...

Re: 60 Kilmarnock St | Fenway

100% this.

I was hoping that this development would provide an opportunity for some smaller retail operations that couldn't afford the rent on Boylston Street. Ideally it could have been an...

Koreatown alone is bigger than downtown Boston. You're also forgetting quite a few neighborhoods - West Hollywood, Los Feliz, Arts District, Silverlake, Mid-Wilshire, Echo Park just to name a few off...

Re: New Yorkers want to move to Boston

Of course. I was talking about people who are choosing to move to a city of their own volition. I know a lot of people don't have that luxury and have to go where the jobs are.

Re: New Yorkers want to move to Boston

At a high level, Boston is basically a smaller version of NYC. It has a very similar climate, similar geography and similar demographics (though less ethnically diverse than NYC). So if someone...

Re: The New Retail Thread

It's over-regulation that allows busy bodies to have this sort of power. If a property is in a commercial/retail zone it shouldn't have to get community approval for a liquor license. It should be a...

Re: Pierce Boston (née The Point )| Boylston St/Brookline Av | Fenway

Yeah most of that comes across as someone who's never lived in a high-rise building before. Or even in a city, to be honest. Helicopters, seriously? Also, is he upset the doormen are doing their job?...

Re: MassDOT Pike Parcels 12 - 15 | Boylston St. and Mass. Ave | Back Bay

Agreed. Once there's a specific proposal for a parcel that seems to be moving forward, it should have its own thread.
