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

A better solution would be to re-bulldoze the entire West End and former Govt Ctr, rebuild it all with more height, narrower roads but many more of them. Blow up the ONeil on the same plan.

Re: Millennium Tower (Filene's) | 426 Washington Street | Downtown

Even though they make the building more distinctive, I can’t say I like the decks at the top... they always make the building look unfinished, or at least not quite right... like vents that should’ve...

Re: Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

Well, this has been extensively discussed and their isn’t agreement among our would-be transit engineers as to how feasible that actually would be. The better move would be replacing the entire...

Re: Harvard Square: Transformation

Go inside during business hours and look at the studio space. It's amazing. All those steps seen in the roof are reflected interiorly by stepped up row upon row of studio space.

Re: Parcel K | Northern Avenue | Seaport

I kinda like the two buildings enclosing the carport / loading area, and the second level outdoor area - has a sort of vaguely midcentury, and warm weather locale vibe to it.

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

It's unreal. I read that last night before bed and was instantly depressed. I'll be old by 2040. WTF. If this is 2040, what does it say about any other serious transit projects we need that...

Re: Boston (née New Brighton) Landing | New Balance Complex | Brighton

Re: Boston (née New Brighton) Landing | New Balance Complex | Brighton

Re: Downtown Crossing (MBTA Station)

Entrances to subways in very crowded areas don’t usually add much chaos, but i don’t have strong opinions on that particular proposal one way or another, it’s just the only thing that came up when...

Downtown Crossing (MBTA Station)

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

Exactly.



Nope. Stop saying "magic wand". No, this is not just drawing lines on a map a la crazy transit pitches and "oh this line would look great connecting here". This is a project that...

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

All this talk about no cars crossing is just nuts. We need greater connectivity in Boston; it's one of the major problems in this city and this is one of the greatest crunch points. There is...

Re: 100 Pier 4 | 136-146 Northern Avenue | Seaport

Nonetheless if it's really public then rights need to be asserted. Seriously.

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

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

Nah, leave it alone. Getting Phase 1 done will add good density to the area, knit Kenmore to Audobon, and help close in the speedway part of Beacon there. Phase 2 is probably never gonna happen, at...

Haha, no, just commenting on the fat blob as previously rendered. Expect it will only look more stumpy and galumphing once they release the shortened version.
