Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

No, I did not. I'm arguing that you can redevelop the a neighborhood without changing it's identity or culture by redeveloping with the input of the existing residents. You want to move in new...

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

Jouhou, you are missing the half of what gentrification is. Yes gentrification is caused by inefficiency in the housing market, specifically by those who are wealthy.

However, gentrification also...

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

Let's be honest. If the old West End was kept intact, you can bet the one person calling for it to be demolished for high-rises would be odurandina. If he was at the helm of Boston's development in...

Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

It depends. On the surface, it does look substantially higher than Boston's rent. However, for many students, off-campus renting presents it's own share of problems, specifically, the required 1 year...

Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

Let's not. The school is already charging a ton of money from their students and there are students that actually look at the cost of on campus housing, like I did and any students that end up opting...

Re: Suffolk Downs Redevelopment

That's still supply and demand even if they manipulate the benchmark. Corporation would have no need to give their execs raises if they didn't feel like they cannot replace the exec (should he or she...

Re: Suffolk Downs Redevelopment

Depends on where the wealth goes, which is typically at the top and none for the bottom.

The fact remains that there are not enough competent execs at the top to run major corporations so...

Re: Omni Hotel @ BCEC | Summer St | Seaport

You have no idea how a strike or protest work do you. If you're not loud or not creating a disturbance, how do you get notice? :rollseyes:

Btw Amazon is liberal so if anything, you're the one being looked down upon.

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

I feel like you should be able to see the horizon behind the Prudential Tower if it is clearly taller. Looks like it's basically the same height as the bottom of the antennae if not slightly shorter...

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

I've been following this project since it was first proposed and I've never seen any spire or antenna. Most likely what you saw was a rendering that was photoshopped with a spire from one of the...

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Sorry staying off topic but they should move Logan Airport elsewhere. The land they are on is tiny and NOT expandable and what use is having an airport close to downtown when it still takes about...

Re: Bulfinch Crossing | Congress Street Garage | West End

Probably the same reason why we as humans tend to find taller and slender people more attractive than shorter and wider people. Maybe it's an biological thing.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

There's a problem with putting power into the people's hands. There's too many different voices.

Re: Development Map and Chart

I don't think you understand at all. I'm aware there's no additional cost to the DEVELOPER by just putting a feature like Central Air (and applicable to other amenities) but it gives the developer...

And that's the problem. There's nothing in the city that is preventing developers from building apartments without central air or some of these other amenities. The reason they do is because they can...

Re: Development Map and Chart

A luxury apartment is an apartment that comes with amenities such as a gym, a pool, central air, a...
