Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

Re: 10/11/2018: HUGE Development Regarding Boston Area College Dormitories

My daughter lives in a high rise similar to this concept at her school. IMO, the cost is minimally above the regular dorm cost. Almost all of the units are either 2 bedroom suites (with 2 students...

Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

At least your shitty office building brings in natural light. Or appears to at least. Who knows what the fine folks at EF will be cooking up for the kids as they toil in that dungeon.

Re: Boston - Most Embarrassing Blight That Tourists See

Does anyone know where to find that documentary? I’ve looked around but all of the links to it are broken or websites are down. The twitter account hasn’t been updated since 2016.

Re: Riverside Station development

Re: BU Development Thread

This thing, and the style in general for that matter, will age as well as brutalism did. Meaning, a limited architecture buff subsection will always adore it, while the masses with loathe it for...

Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

Is this thing like a data center or something similar? What happened to the trend of getting as much natural light as possible into the office space?

Re: Open Thread

Yes, but location is a significant factor as well. St. Pete is 24 miles from Tampa and most of the population is on the Tampa side. If the Sox played in Foxborough, even with the lure of the lyrical...

Re: South Station Tower

I think you are alone, or at least part of very small community who does. I can be a little dense but it took awhile to see what you are seeing.

Re: Brookline Developments

Yes, it was a pretty common occurrence in the late 60's & 70's. It was all about the property tax bill. I believe prop 2 1/2 helped to curtail a lot of that practice.

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

Fidelity too. I think they totally shuttered the massive campus they had in Marlborough. They moved most of the jobs to Texas and India. I personally believe Meddel's opinion, while certainly valid,...

Re: Arsenal Yards | Arsenal Mall Redevelopment | Watertown
