Re: New Forum Discussion

If we want to keep up this momentum, we should formulate a task list for what comes next. At this point, we're still holding a unanimous mandate for a new site, with the qualifications that the poll...

Re: New Forum Discussion

Honestly, I think we should identify admins who know how to build this stuff, give them a features list, and let them pick whatever they'll find easiest to work with. I don't have the knowledge to...

Re: New Forum Discussion

Excuse my ignorance, but in the lead where? Is there a poll for this that I'm not seeing?

I don't actually have a preference, I'd just like to see what people are thinking.

Re: New Forum Discussion

Not that it's all that important, but I'd prefer something less specific to the architecture field. Having these as badges on every user would send a message that this is an architecture forum. All...

Re: New Forum Discussion

To me it's not about NIMBYism or height fetishism or anything ideological. I see a need for a pane for each project or a set of articles that are "just the facts," potentially with some context but...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

To paraphrase Dan Quayle: If the casino doesn't succeed, it runs the risk of failure.

Re: New Forum Discussion

A couple of responses:

1) We MUST vote to stay or go. There may be some silent members who would appreciate a voice in that.

2) We can probably do the domain name and hosting software in a...

Re: New Forum Discussion

Seconded on both. Not that anyone's arguing with this, but the other reason to have the current mods run the vote to move is so it really is binding - they promise to lock the threads on a certain...

Re: The New Retail Thread

Waterside Place would like to host a vet clinic instead of an "innovation" tenant on its first floor. Gave up most of the "innovation" space a few years ago for a neighborhood health center.

Re: New Forum Discussion

I think that's a feature request, actually. A set of articles/fact sheets on various things written by our recognized expert pool that can live on the front page.

Re: The New Retail Thread

All of which was mentioned by the owner himself in the article - they see this more as a cultural space than a bookstore.

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

If you view that as the end product of "mistakes", the only way to avoid it at Suffolk Downs is to build it as a public housing project.

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

Not being queer myself, isn't the point of a nightclub like this that it's countercultural and somewhat off-the-beaten-path? I'm not sure that Fenway's that kind of neighborhood at this point...

Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

That's... um... not how that works.

NSRL (a) doesn't have the capacity to through run all trains and (b) won't be accessible from all commuter rail lines to begin with.

Re: West Cambridge (Alewife, Acorn Park, Cambridge Park, Fresh Pond)

I believe these units are 1 parking space per (I might be wrong on that) which isn't zero but also isn't 1.5 or 2.

Re: West Cambridge (Alewife, Acorn Park, Cambridge Park, Fresh Pond)

I don't disagree about the disinterested planning, but this is a LOT of housing stock piled right onto a subway station. If people want to start addressing the housing crisis, this is what needs to...

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

On the one hand, I want to say that the BPDA actually is at "fault" more than MP. MP wants to make money, and it's the BPDA's job to constrain or redirect that interest in the public's interest....
