Re: Old Boston Edison Plant | Summer St | South Boston

There has actually been a fair amount of new construction on E 1st between L and Farragut. Not as much in the lower end, but lots of 4ish story condo buildings.

TBH I find the demands for an all...

Re: Scape Student Housing | 1252-1268 Boylston Street | Fenway

This site is actually near some pretty recent zoning that allowed all of the development along this stretch. It was supposed to taper off at the end to the park. Pretty standard stuff.

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

Yea, it's a boring as can be. Signage on buildings is unfortunately a bit part of Walsh's Boston but the companies should at least be trying. Ideally, it would be integrated into the building the way...

Re: The New Retail Thread

I loved Hillstone so much. It was sunken but that gave you a great view on the plaza, let you feel a bit removed form the chaos but still able to see it. And as chains go, the food was good while not...

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

From what I know about affordable housing funding, which isn't much admittedly, the scale/massing decisions are made far outside of Boston. So the current trend nationally is away from density...

Re: One Kenmore Square | 560 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

I agree that Kenmore Sq is not good--particularly since the changes T made to the stop in the middle. But I am not as convinced that this project is the answer. That plaza is on the north side of a...

Re: Residences at Brighton Marine | 1465 Comm. Ave | Brighton

The code changed recently to allow 5 over 2, right? So I think we are going to be seeing a lot more like this.

Re: Emerson College - Little Building Addition + Renovation | 80 Boylston St | Downto

The only part of this project I was concerned about was piercing that top parapet. It actually has turned our really well--I think those rooms will have a cool retrofit feel, in addition to amazing...

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

I drove by this the other day and was so impressed. It is huge, but complex and interesting. I'm really looking forward to this being done.

Re: Office Tower | 125 Lincoln St | Leather District

Why design a new building when you can stretch one you've already designed a short distance away? If this were a spectacular tower I think it would have a much better chance with the Leather District...

Re: One Kenmore Square | 560 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

Bingo. They also want a PDA to avoid any zoning issues so the city will give them Comm Ave to let that happen.

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

You realize that development runs the city. They will approve anything that gets filed unless the neighborhood puts up a huge stink.

Re: Harvard - Allston Campus

Pretty sure Klarmon is on the B School. They like historicist stuff. And Tata, which isn't historicist, is a big ugh because of it's refusal to relate to the river. Bill Rawn is a really good...

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

It's striking when this isn't the case. I rented a car in Philly and refilling before dropping off was really difficult, even with all the assistance of digital maps.

Re: Artists for Humanity | 100 W. 2nd | South Boston

I don't hate it as much as everyone else here seems to--there are really nice views into the building from A Street. While the materials are very simple, it detailing is nice.

But, what I've heard...

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

Honestly, it is nuts but if I could buy a crazy property in Boston the end penthouse here might be it. (Or the top of One Dalton). But the view from Pier 4 is really something.

Re: Quincy Center Redevelopment

It actually reads more like an office building than residential. Sometimes boring and straightforward is a better idea.

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

Ding Ding Ding. BCDC is advisory. They almost never disprove a project (I can't think of any others) but this doesn't stop it by any means. It will still happen. A giant, glassy mess in the middle of...

It also is part of the SOHO loft/reused factory space aesthetic that is big with tech firms and designers and has been for a while.

Re: SBWTC /South Boston Waterfront Transportation Center | Seaport

The garage is MassPort, which I believe makes it automatically exempt from City of Boston regulations like the parking freeze.

Re: Motor Mart Tower | 201 Stuart Str. | Park Sq | Boston

Agreed. It's really handsome and a new way of looking at the vertical addition--it's going to be really striking.
