Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

From the BI link: "For those wondering what their city may look like should Amazon choose it, the company's current home in Seattle is a cautionary tale. Locals point to snarled traffic, soaring...

Re: Providence developments

This pro-development forummer who rarely chimes in feels compelled to say that it would be tragic to lose the Superman Building. I'm not very familiar with the local development climate in...

Re: New UMass Boston student housing project

Thank you for posting these. I'm very interested in seeing the construction, but I just about never get down there.

Re: New UMass Boston student housing project

UMB can be a dreary place. My advice as an alum is that it is essential to be social with classmates and instructors. That might come naturally at a residential campus, but it takes effort at a...

Re: New UMass Boston student housing project

There are graduate students and undergraduate transfer students who will only attend UMB for a year or two who will know nothing but this torn up campus. And the demolition of the garage substructure...

Re: New UMass Boston student housing project

My understanding is that utilities for the original campus megastructure are contained within the parking garage that is beneath and between the original buildings. Before the school demolishes the...

Nice. Let's install a 1:1 scale model of this in the Back Bay.

Re: Providence developments

I'm feeling agnostic about the height. But whatever the height, I would hope for a good urban and human-scaled street level with quality design and a variety of active storefronts. My dream would be...

Re: Our Lady of Good Voyage | Seaport Sq Parcel H | 55 - 57 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Because this church is human scaled, simple, and fairly traditional, it will be a key building that orients people within the Seaport. No one will give you directions to turn right after the third...

Re: Trans national place tower 1 and 2

I think a supertall downtown tower would have to an iconic design.

Re: JFK U-Mass

Nice shots, BeeLine.

Re: Your opinion on the State Street building

I've always liked it. It adds variety to the skyline and the sign projects Boston's economic power.

I don't expect much of the ground floor of a tower.

Re: South Station Tower

Maybe not everyone sees the ridiculousness of this statement. It is some silly developerspeak to say that South Station will only become a landmark when this is built.

Re: South Station Tower

From the Hines page:

"With commencement of construction anticipated in early 2017, South Station is destined to become a future landmark in Boston."

Re: What building would you nominate for replacement

I happen to like the JFK Federal Building and think it is one of the few buildings from that era (or error) that is standing the test of time. No, it certainly isn't woven well into the urban fabric,...
