Re: Longfellow Bridge update

What's the building going on the corner of Cambridge and Charles (i.e., the last picture)?

Re: The Ropewalk | 5th Street | Charlestown Navy Yard

The odd dimensions and the historical requirements made this a tough building to redevelop. I think I even remember reading that they had to keep the RR tracks in the new floors of the residential...

Re: Six West Broadway Hotel |South Boston

Did you really just blame Value Engineering on Socialism? These were VE'd to maximize profit (capitalism) not redistribute wealth.
I don't know why I took the bait....

Re: 150 Kneeland Street | Chinatown

Could be demo. It's pretty easy to get a demo permit.

Re: The Boulevard (née The Times/Littlest Bar) | 110 Broad St | Downtown

This turned out much better than I expected. I wish they continued the orange facade around to the back of the building. The precast brick panels look cheap.

Re: Omni Hotel @ BCEC | Summer St | Seaport

Does anyone know if this will cover the highway ramps coming of D Street, or will it stop short of the ramps?

Re: North Washington St Bridge

Tangent, I'm all for accelerated construction (up the street the Callahan Tunnel was demolished and rebuilt in 70 days of 24/7 work!). But I'm wondering if that wasn't an option here given the...

Re: Whiskey Priest/Atlantic Beer Garden Redevelopment | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

CLF has lost its way. They started opposing the Northern Pass transmission project when they reached a $280M deal with a competing VT project. Now we'll get no renewable power from Canada.....

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Depends on how they legalize sports gambling (if at all in Mass). If they legalize it but only in casinos - very good for Wynn. If they legalize more broadly (say by allowing anyone with a Keno...

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

Re: Ink Block (Boston Herald) | 300 Harrison Avenue | South End

I used to volunteer at the Pine Street Inn when I lived in the South End. They do wonderful things. But people need to get off their high horse about living across the street from it. Like it or...

Your link didn't lead to a study. It linked to an Op Ed written by the head of the main trade group whose only purpose (literally) is to advocate on behalf of non-union contractors. He mentions a...

Re: Waterside Place 1B | 505 Congress Street | Seaport

Tough day to be on the Suffolk / Derenzo team. Tragically lost an operator at Wynn and then had this incident at the Silver Line. I'm kind of floored they weren't required to install seismic...

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Re: The Lucas | 136 Shawmut Ave | South End

John, is $767 really good for new construction in the South End? That feels low to me but you'd know better than I.

Re: Cambridge Crossing (NorthPoint) | East Cambridge/Charlestown | Cambridge/Boston

Alot of old rail sites are. Think of some of the bulk goods that traveled by rail before their were environmental regulations.
