Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

Yea losing that facade really sucks. I wish the city put up more of a fight to preserve it.

Re: Motor Mart Tower | 201 Stuart Str. | Park Sq | Boston

The garage already has an active street presence so this is not a big upgrade for the area beyond the density.

I like the design and I think it should be built. A bit taller would have been nice,...

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

Get your cocks out boys! We're circle-jerking about tall towers again.

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

They take the work elevator to near the top and then cross over on one of the anchor braces attached to the tower. Still some climbing but not 60 stories worth :)

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

Blame the tepid entrenched Democratic legislature for not being interested in progressive transportation policy. The governor isn't the problem in this state.

Re: Marriott Moxy Hotel | 240 Tremont Street (Parcel P-7A) | Theater District

Hmm... interesting the left / back half of the tower is going to be something other than glass?

Re: Unions are Good! Or Bad!

I don't really have a problem with private unions. I have a big problem with public sector unions.

That said... The Marriott thing needs to stop. My roommate and I are getting tired of being woken...

Re: One Post Office Square Makeover and Expansion

This looks infinitely better than what is there right now... and I like the new render more than the previous one. What the fuck are you people bitching about?

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

The camera is probably about four feet above the floor in a person's hand so that probably explains why it appears taller.

Re: Worcester Improvements

Discussion of the history is fine, but it's pretty well set that American's seem to really like suburban living and driving cars. There's well over half a century of evidence to support that...

Re: Henry Cobb, interviewed in the Globe

What was the planned conversion of the Clarendon building across the street? I can think of three sites that fit that description.

Edit: Nevermind. Read the article.

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 700 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

I want to like it... but ugh. Hopefully the BCDC gives them some good guidance because this thing is going to get built one way or another, but it's just too jarring in its current form.

This is great. I was expecting disaster and instead we got something very exciting that hopefully makes it through the approval process.

Re: Do you still hate the seaport?

Still not a big fan of The Seaport. It's Kendall 2.0. Totally forgettable if you don't work their or have a reason to be there (e.g. resident or visitor).
