Re: Cape Wind Farm

Well said, I agree with your post. And I had wanted to mention one of these turbine accidents since in comparison I don't think a solar panel would pose the same type of potential risk...unless it...

Re: Cape Wind Farm

I am all for alternative energy solutions, but wind farms seem to me that they will be obsolete relatively quickly given the rapid increases in solar production efficiency. I worry that in 10 years...

Re: Is parking too cheap?

I have a reverse commute every day from Boston to the South Shore and I constantly shake my head at the volume of cars trying to get into the city every morning. Obviously these people would rather...

Re: Fan Pier

JetBlue would have made a lot of sense for Boston (or the other way around)?

Hard to find a reason for BJs to go to Boston when most of their stores are suburban?

Re: Fenway Area Redevelopment

Thanks, I missed that! Then maybe it is a very good deal?

Re: Fenway Area Redevelopment

Actually not a bad deal considering it pays for itself after the 16th time (assuming $5/beer). Much cheaper than attending a handful of games + eating & drinking.

The one sticking point is that...

Re: Fort Point

Ha, I love how Park tries to spin this that somehow a "maturity default" is different from any other default. And "we've never missed a payment", yeah except the last one where you had to pay the...

Re: Fan Pier

The lack of height forces the developer seek a large footprint to increase buildable square footage for each building. Unfortunately it is driven by the financials of the underwriting and since the...

Re: Filene's

My guess is no. The current state of the commercial real estate market is preventing large projects like this to get off the ground. There is a ton of vacant office space already in the Boston CBD,...

Re: Liberty Mutual plans major Boston expansion

I just think the city's tax exemption on a project like this makes sense in the way that you have to "spend money to make money", or in this case, take a little less money for the greater good of the...

Re: Liberty Mutual plans major Boston expansion

John, you cannot be serious. Would you prefer that Liberty not build anything at all? Or perhaps move their people to Waltham or another suburb with a plethora of unused office space? Also, the...

Re: 50 West Broadway (former Cardinal Cushing HS)

I'm pretty sure that if we all had the choice to have a parking space with our apartments, we'd take it. Plus, having the garage will alleviate any additional cars that will be looking for street...

Re: Movie Studios: Boston is the new Hollywood.

Banks are willing to lend, but not $550 million. This project is too big as it is currently underwritten and the rents they are assuming are just not realistic.

Re: Nashua Street Residences (North Station)

Unless rents continually rise, construction costs stay flat, and borrowing gets easier I doubt you'll see Nashua St. apartments get started anytime soon.

Re: Nashua Street Residences (North Station)

No harm in getting the approval process out of the way, right? Bigger issues when you put the shovel in the dirt and wind up like Filene's.
