Re: The New Retail Thread

Probably Goodnight for The Tam. I have a hard time imagining it survives under an investor-group ownership that will want to maximize profit at that location. I've spent way too much time drinking in...

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

They tore down the old five or six story St. Vincent's hospital complex in Worcester using a wrecking ball about 9 years ago. They are indeed fun to watch but the seem really inefficient. You...

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

Timeline makes sense in my head... probably another few weeks of demo and rubble clearing. 2021 is a lot closer than it seems... we're at the halfway point for 2018 already.

Re: Worcester Improvements

Grew up in Worcester. Lived there for two decades. Neither of these buildings were worth saving. Notre Dame was always in a terrible location from an urban redevelopment perspective. Mount Carmel is...

Re: 5 Middlesex Avenue | Assembly Square | Somerville

I have low confidence in this facade being high quality material based on the renders.

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

The views are lovely... my entire takeaway from those photo's though was that The Pru desperately needs a facade cleaning.

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

I'm pretty sure this is topped out in terms of floors and core. Appears to be 32 floors above the mechanical level. And the schematics in the PNF showed 32 floors above mech plus about two additional...

Re: General Electric HQ | 244-284 A Street | Fort Point

GE because GE isn't going out of business and even if they were they would be snapped up by someone else as a major subsidiary rather than just evaporating into thin air.

Re: 10 Fan Pier Blvd | Fan Pier Parcel E | Seaport

I'm rarely in the height crowd but I wish this were maybe twice as tall (I know impossible in this location). Also I wish it were residential.

Digging the curves and the facade in general. Not in...

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

Hater here I guess. Who cares, really? The interesting stuff is at ground level in the city not several hundred feet up.

Re: BPDA Downtown Planning Study [Mandated By 115 Winthrop Sq. Shadow Law Exemption]

Not sure I've ever considered the area south of The Common and Public Garden as "Downtown" but otherwise it looks accurate to my mental map. I might include Gov. Center personally.

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

I still find that FAA height maps core southern border zigs and zags suspicious when all the other lines around the box are dead straight.

Re: Omni Hotel @ BCEC | Summer St | Seaport

The precast in the render above looks terrible with the glass. More bad Seaport architecture. Yay.

This kind of lazy architecture belongs in the Seaport not Kenmore Square.
