Re: Boston Properties Office Tower | 888 Boylston Street | Back Bay

It was always kinda the busiest place on Boylston though between the Apple Store, the Pru itself and the Hynes. I just wish the city would crack down on these idiot cabbies who loiter in the bus stop...

Re: Renovations to BPL's Johnson Wing | Back Bay

Why don't you guys give Bill Rawn a call and he'll tell you about the myriad of conditions that must be met to pass ADA, i.e. the doors have to stay open a certain period of time and the path of...

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

Sorry to veer OT, but what did Ginger's used to be? We ate there all the time in the early '00s, but the name escapes me.

EDIT: NM, it was Betty's Wok & Noodle.

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

Sorry, I'm so sorry. I've really tried to rachet back from being "that guy" the last year or so, but if you really look at the Mandarin, almost *all* of it is glass/storefront at street level. And...

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

Invite, engage, ecourage interest. Peeble's Parcel 13 proposal for sidewalk-level pedestrian/building engagement is frighteningly (sp?) similar to the Mandarin, with only the Boylston St. T entrance...

Greater good of the city and its residents.....just a few weeks ago we were sitting on the patio of Abe& Louies pondering the atrocity that is the Mandarin. A failed restaurant, another one...

Re: 30 Dalton St. Residences | Back Bay

Re: Copley Place Expansion and Tower | Back Bay

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

I recall Lee Kennedy craned empty containers into Berklee's site after they got down 10 ft. Empty trailers came to unload and picked up the full ones.

Re: Boston Properties Office Tower | 888 Boylston Street | Back Bay

They turned on the oscillating (?) lights at the crown this week fading from one color to an other color. It looks like a comic book. Which, is fitting. This building is a joke.

Re: 2 Charlesgate West

Word went around last month to tenants that leases will not be renewed in the current building. So, that seems to indicate the billionares came to an agreement.

Re: Gov't Center Station Rebuild

Accessibility for Hynes was written into the Peebles award for Parcel 13. Construction proposed to start in 2020, IIRC.

Re: Boston Properties Office Tower | 888 Boylston Street | Back Bay

I've never understand why anyone would design something like that for a place like Boston. It serves very little functional purpose (shielding those under from rain/snow), looks stupid and wastes...

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

MassDOT required the winning bidder of Parcel 13 (Peebles) to reopen the Boylston Street entrance diagonal from the end of the Hynes collonade. That's one of the complicating design factors, as well,...

Re: Town Vs Gown: The role of schools and universities in Boston

That cracked me up.

Tangent, I agree. I am all for non-profit status for universities but when I hear leadership say things like "we can't build until the dorm starts generating revenue" it makes...

Re: 1325-1341 Boylston St (Fenway Triangle/Former Goodyear Tire)

Making the circle recognizable as Nike's or McDonald's logos was one of the number 1 goals of Bob Ulricha and Robyn Waters so the name almost became irrelevant. Pretty smart.
