Re: 40 Trinity Place | 426 Stuart Street | Back Bay

Are there any renders of this that also show the Back Bay garage towers? It seems like they will be extremely close to each other.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

For several years now, the standard practice on MBTA buses has been to open all doors at every stop. I can probably count on one hand the number of times I've had to shout rear door in the past 10...

Re: Roslindale Developments

I like the idea of a pedestrianized Poplar with 2-way traffic on Washington. Unfortunately, that may need to wait, as the current upgrade planned involves a better pedestrian and cyclist experience...

Re: Roslindale Developments

I'm one of those middle aged "first wave" arrivers and I know quite a few others. I'd say we are generally speaking in favor of more housing in Roslindale and eliminating parking minimums. Certainly...

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

I think the cedar posts are in the Back Bay, due to everything being land fill. I don't know the soil composition at Winthrop Square, but that area is original shawmut peninsula.

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

I don't know, that building has some history. The hotel, which has previously been a Radison and a Howard Johnsons took a lead in transitioning that neighborhood from crack pipes and hookers to an...

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

Exactly this. Content ownership matters to some if not all of us. I would hate to lose some of the great pictures and thought provoking words due to a poorly designed ToS. None of this is to imply...

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

Thanks for reiterating this. I don't think many of us are bothered by the ads at the moment. I consider them to be completely unobtrusive to the extent that I barely notice them. If they can cover...

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

Agreed, that would have been a good spot to cut from Columbus/Tremont corridor over to Huntington. However, Northeastern might legitimately have an interest in preventing a bike highway through...

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

That might be useful for ArchBoston and other transit nerds, but I suspect such a listing would lead to public demand for other service cuts. To be honest, I think subsidy level should be one of the...

Re: Boston Skyline Photos

There are really good views from the top of that SB Center garage, but I hate seeing the seeing of surface lots in the foreground. I've never been able to frame the picture in a way that doesn't...

Re: Archboston revamp

Why hasn't MagicMan been banned yet? Even if he isn't Rifleman, the character is clearly intent on sewing chaos. Get rid of the troublemakers.

Re: Housing a Changing City: Boston 2030

So I wonder if the city still thinks that housing 700,000 by 2030 is the right target. Boston has grown significantly faster than the city's planning estimates anticipated. I think we all know that...

Re: Regional Rail (including North-South Rail Link)

@tallguy, can you possibly try to fix that with some quote tags? It's pretty hard to read/follow the conversation when you don't bother with the tags.

Re: The Residences at Forest Hills | 3694 Washington Street | Jamaica Plain

Yes, you are probably right. However, such construction would require community input as part of the process for requesting a variance. A community significantly made up of people who would lose...
