Re: Kenmore Square North

Question: Though I totally get the preservation-minded response, what's so special about this building? Aren't there thousands like it across Brookline, Allston, Brighton, Fenway, Cambridge, Roxbury,...

Re: The Parkway Apartments | 1507 VFW Parkway | West Roxbury

I've always referred to it as Rt 1 also. At some point they officially re-routed 1 North coming up from Foxboro onto, of all things, 95 South to bring it over to a 93 North concurrency. Not sure why...

Re: The Parkway Apartments | 1507 VFW Parkway | West Roxbury

^ Note the last parenthesis should be included in the URL

I think it's funny that they call this Parkway Apartments, when this is on the section of VFW "Parkway" south of Bridge/Spring that is...

Re: The Aberdeen | 1650 Commonwealth Ave. | Brighton

I don't get the hate. This does exactly what you want an in-fill building to do. Alright, do the narrow (staircase?) windows look somewhat reminiscent of prison or self-storage? Yeah... maybe... But...

Re: Old Boston Edison Plant | Summer St | South Boston

2040 is going to be a banner year. Look forward to full build out of this, and also West Station! Oh, and I could conceivably be a grandparent!

Re: Briv

Whittle I’m with you completely. A new site will generate far better participation, conversation and commitment to “housekeeping” beyond what we have now. Question is how best to migrate the...

Re: Briv

Count me in favor of migrating to archboston.net. Justin's template clearly proves it's capable of handling similar discussions. The limiter on this site is moderation - not that Statler and Van...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Joel, I've posted this idea before, which is quite similar to what you're saying - substitute your downtown routing for the Greenway and they would serve a similar function. I routed things this way...

Re: Indianapolis, a Bike Haven City

Thanks for putting together such a great post. A lot of great moments on that cultural trail - though I have to say many seem more 'contrived'/'interventionist' than authentically urban, just judging...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Urban Ring is a strange oversight, I agree. But perhaps the most critical of oversights,a and the worst thing about this document in my mind, is the way it kicks the can on any improvements that make...

Re: South Bank Bridge Project | West End

I don't ever bike or even much walk this area. So, am I right in thinking that this would let someone bike from Science Park to the North End without having to go down to Causeway?

Looks like it...

Re: Allston Yards (Stop and Shop) | 60 Everett St | Allston

Probably a symptom of the mere-exposure (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mere-exposure_effect) effect, but I'm starting to see Elkus designs and think "whoa, that's great!"

Re: Allston Square | 372 Cambridge St | Allston

415 Cambridge is my favorite among this mix. Has a distinctly Copenhagen feel to it. But it's rather bizarre to be building around the auto parts store. How long will that owner hold out, and now...

Re: Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

I'd describe the massing of this as "Uri Geller got hold of a cruise ship."

Not a fan.

Re: Worcester Improvements

^ I don't disagree with you, Itchy, but I think there's a structural issue here as well beyond simply "lacking civic pride." You see this in many second-tier cities that exist in the shadow of a...

You’ve done a great service with these photos. Thanks!
