Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Did it have a wooden escalator? Was that one of them that caught on fire?

Edit: Appears not? Here's a plan from 1942 with no escalators: https://www.wardmaps.com/viewasset.php?aid=19443

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

WTF. No one cares about the practice facility. It wasn't even new news about the practice facility. This thread should not have bumped.

This thread should be locked.

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

Adding floors didn't fulfill the requirement because Oath was requesting a minimum size per floor or group of floors.

That's structure for a mechanical screen on the roof. Not sure why you don't seem to like it, since it gives the tower artificial height!
