Could we please try to post all community/zoning meetings in the forum for Boston Architecture/Urbanism Related Events?

Re: North-South Rail Link

I'm all for an F Line, too. I think it would be hard to pull off both at the same exact time, though. Which is probably what would be necessary to avoid appearing as a loss of transit.

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

This actually would make me even angrier -- to think that there's people with time on their hands intentionally shitting on the city and the general public.

Re: North-South Rail Link

I disagree that Providence, Worcester, Fitchburg, Lowell, Lawrence, Haverhill, and perhaps Nashua, Manchester, and Portsmouth should get "low density of service," but anyway....



Dear God, no....

Re: The Merano (Parcels 1B & 1C) | Bulfinch Triangle | West End

Haverhill St needs one of its lanes removed and the sidewalks widened. The sidewalks get far too cramped all too often, and one lane of the street somehow becomes a strip of parking for police...

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

Yes, but what about THE CHILDREN.

I'm guessing the complainers are from Comm Ave and Marlborough St just to the north. It makes sense, and is expected, even if they're unjustified.

Re: North-South Rail Link

For one, that's absurd that there's no benefit to Boston residents. And two, that is absurd to say that only Boston should get funding for transportation. Red-Blue is important, but it isn't going to...

Re: North-South Rail Link

There's plenty of platforms at Penn, I wouldn't think the two are related all that much. Another major issue with the Hudson tunnel is that maintenance, especially the heavy stuff, can rarely be done...

Re: North-South Rail Link

That's a lot of lines for 2 tracks. Keep in mind that a patrol, track work, or any sort of break-down/incident means you're immediately down to a single track operation. A major failure of the Hudson...

Re: East Boston Developments

I know you are, and I was actually being incredibly specific in who I'm squaring the blame on.

EDIT: that doesn't sound right. Sounds like I'm targeting you, which I am *not.*

With the great success where seeing on Boylston in Fenway, I have a few questions.

Is there a project/thread for the Tasty Burger parcel?

Re: Mildred Hailey (Bromley Heath) housing project redevelopment

Sounds very promising. Calling these projects "dated" is only scratching the surface. They're deplorable, depressing, poorly laid out, and not really all that dense. Tripling the density and a 1:1...

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

This was probably already noted somewhere in here, but last week I found that the second or third floor of Primark was recently expanded and now goes out over the Old Navy location.
