Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

I drove by this the other day and was so impressed. It is huge, but complex and interesting. I'm really looking forward to this being done.

Re: Office Tower | 125 Lincoln St | Leather District

Why design a new building when you can stretch one you've already designed a short distance away? If this were a spectacular tower I think it would have a much better chance with the Leather District...

Re: One Kenmore Square | 560 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

Bingo. They also want a PDA to avoid any zoning issues so the city will give them Comm Ave to let that happen.

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

You realize that development runs the city. They will approve anything that gets filed unless the neighborhood puts up a huge stink.

Re: Harvard - Allston Campus

Pretty sure Klarmon is on the B School. They like historicist stuff. And Tata, which isn't historicist, is a big ugh because of it's refusal to relate to the river. Bill Rawn is a really good...

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

It's striking when this isn't the case. I rented a car in Philly and refilling before dropping off was really difficult, even with all the assistance of digital maps.

Re: Artists for Humanity | 100 W. 2nd | South Boston

I don't hate it as much as everyone else here seems to--there are really nice views into the building from A Street. While the materials are very simple, it detailing is nice.

But, what I've heard...

Re: Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

Honestly, it is nuts but if I could buy a crazy property in Boston the end penthouse here might be it. (Or the top of One Dalton). But the view from Pier 4 is really something.

Re: Quincy Center Redevelopment

It actually reads more like an office building than residential. Sometimes boring and straightforward is a better idea.

It's not in a historic district so no review.

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

Ding Ding Ding. BCDC is advisory. They almost never disprove a project (I can't think of any others) but this doesn't stop it by any means. It will still happen. A giant, glassy mess in the middle of...

Re: BU Development Thread

It also is part of the SOHO loft/reused factory space aesthetic that is big with tech firms and designers and has been for a while.

Honestly, I'd prefer to see a nice duct to a crappy dropped...

Re: SBWTC /South Boston Waterfront Transportation Center | Seaport

The garage is MassPort, which I believe makes it automatically exempt from City of Boston regulations like the parking freeze.

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

Agreed. It's really handsome and a new way of looking at the vertical addition--it's going to be really striking.

Re: Crossroads at Kenmore | 560 Commonwealth Ave | Kenmore Square

I love this comparison because it continues to show how impoverished the design of the Data Sciences tower is. Sigh.

Re: Continuum | Barry's Corner | Allston

You can usually find PNFs on the BPDA website. Look under Development Projects. The list is default and it can be a trial and error to find the project (this one is under Barry's Corner, not...

Re: Mass. General Hospital says it plans large addition

Also, hospitals have very strict understanding of floor plan. So you might need clusters of six patient rooms for staffing and every eight clusters you need x amount of support space and so on. It's...

Re: The New Retail Thread

Also, Askenazy has not really been that innovative and hasn't done much to improve the property beyond some signs. To my mind, they've been a real disappointment as an operator. Given the number of...

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 665 Commonwealth Avenue | BU Central

The more I've thought about it, the more I realize that my dissatisfaction with the building is the disconnect between the tower and base. There seems to be a physical idea about the tower--the...
