Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

Re: General Electric HQ (Necco Buildings Reno) | 244-284 A Street | Fort Point

I am aware there will be something built on that parcel. My point was, whatever ends up being built there will have no relationship to this project and thus, not Phase II.

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

Does anyone know what happens to old concrete? Can it be ground down and reused in new concrete or does it all just go to landfill?

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I'll go once (probably in about a year or so) out of morbid curiosity and never go back.

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

I don't know. I kind of like it when words have actual meanings and can be used to clearly and accurately describe a concept or idea.

But hey, as long as we get some good marketing out of it.

Re: The New Retail Thread

Re: Notre Dame de Paris

It sounds like it is thankfully less of a total loss than earlier reports were saying (when will I learn not to put faith in early reports?). This is still a tragedy but thankfully it sounds like...

Re: Revere Developments

Mind if I take a guess?

The blue is insulation.

The white 'paint' is some sort of liquid flashing?

The grey/black 'paint' is a liquid weather barrier, like a liquid tyvek?

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

I know Beton will strongly disagree with me on this, but I liked the garage 1000x more after they painted it.
