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

They dramatically reduced their event schedule this summer. I know because the MBTA is focused on installing an underground transmission line down Causeway Street and finishing before the event...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

As I recall there were three roadway improvement contracts:
Sullivan Square (DW White for around $10M)
Alford Street and the trucking areas behind Mystic Station (SPS around $15M)

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

Perhaps they didn't want to do something fun and memorable. After all, if they did that, the public might actually utilize the park. Adding to maintenance costs and reducing the residents' privacy....

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Sounds like they're basically recreating the lobby at Atlantic Wharf. A nice space but hardly a place that welcomes in the public.

Re: Charlie Card/MBTA Fare Replacement system

Thanks for the info HelloBostonHi. Any idea what's going on with the procurement delays? I understand RFPs were supposed to go out to the short-listed bidders months ago.

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

^My lord that render shows a terrible plan. They would have effectively privatized most of the new open space by confining it to private courtyards.

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

I don't understand why we should expect this traffic pattern to succeed where Sullivan Square fails. It's basically the same design, right? And in Sullivan Square there are far fewer pedestrians to...

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

Strange list. They list Jim Beam, but it was bought by a conglomerate a long time ago. Then they list a soap retailer but don't list Union Oyster House.

Re: The Ropewalk | 5th Street | Charlestown Navy Yard

The odd dimensions and the historical requirements made this a tough building to redevelop. I think I even remember reading that they had to keep the RR tracks in the new floors of the residential...

Re: The Boulevard (née The Times/Littlest Bar) | 110 Broad St | Downtown

This turned out much better than I expected. I wish they continued the orange facade around to the back of the building. The precast brick panels look cheap.

Re: Whiskey Priest/Atlantic Beer Garden Redevelopment | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Depends on how they legalize sports gambling (if at all in Mass). If they legalize it but only in casinos - very good for Wynn. If they legalize more broadly (say by allowing anyone with a Keno...
