Re: MassMutual | 10 Fan Pier Blvd | Fan Pier Parcel E | Seaport

I don't get it when people complain about boats in a harbor. The Provincetown Marina folks have taken a disintegrating, underused pier and turned it into a nice harborfront marina:...

Re: Solar Window Blinds

This is one of those products that seems nifty, but then you dig into it... the Kickstarter price was $85 for a blind and now they're selling them for $250 each. But they're not in production yet,...

Re: St. Francis House | 19-story mixed-income tower | Lagrange Street | Chinatown

The 48 Boylston St project is just a little 5-story building that will wrap around the existing Union building. It was approved back in 2015.

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

What's with those weird street lights? They look like leftovers from the late-1980s po-mo design of the original Prudential Center arcades.

Re: Biking in Boston

I've been digging down into the details of how the scores were calculated and there are a lot of questionable assumptions. I'll use Provincetown as an example since it's easier to parse:

Re: Children's Hospital Building | Longwood

You gotta love it when they close a sidewalk to build a gerbil tube and don't provide any alternative way to walk around the construction zone.

Re: 110 Arlington Street - Boutique Hotel | Bay Village

The only thing I wish they'd done differently is put actual fan lights in those arched windows on the second floor.

The cheap cement pavers are far more tacky than the marble cladding.

Re: Parking Permits

Most permit parking areas have a few 2-hour visitor spaces, but you can't park all day.

The justification for resident parking in some of the outer neighborhoods is often to stop commuters from...

Re: 10 Farnsworth Street | Fort Point

I guess you can do a nice facade when the units sell for $2.6 M to $7.5 M each.

Re: One Post Office Square Makeover and Expansion

There's a major ground floor reconfiguration happening with this. It removes the gigantic car entrance for the hotel and converts it to retail.

And it looks like that rooftop "lantern" tenant...

Re: Assembly's Edge | Assembly Square | Somerville

I hope they rethink the awful angled parking proposed for Middlesex Ave. They really should put the bike lane adjacent to the sidewalk and then the parking at the curb.

Re: Hood Business Park | 480-570 Rutherford Avenue | Charlestown

There's a *lot* of dead street wall in that design, though, which is rather anti-urban and not very safe for pedestrians.
