Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

WTF. No one cares about the practice facility. It wasn't even new news about the practice facility. This thread should not have bumped.

This thread should be locked.

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

Adding floors didn't fulfill the requirement because Oath was requesting a minimum size per floor or group of floors.

It can be much sooner than 21 years and that's exactly what many members of the State House & Senate along with some members of the FMCB are pushing. It had to be a "next priority" instead of a...

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

Heat trace always. fails. Too many architects rely on it instead of coming up with innovative solutions that are appropriate for the region's climate.

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