Re: Providence developments

I still dislike it. If it were maybe a block or two north it would be good but now its just Jersey Shore meets Le Corbusier.

Re: The Boston "what if" thread

Sad thing is, if it had lasted until the '70s or '80s it could've probably been cleaned up instead of filled. And then we would have beautiful waterfront land in Roxbury and the South End.

Re: Proposed But Never Built

I would say somewhere closer to downtown because the website mentions "the adjacent towers" and there are no towers in Eagle Hill. There is a gridded building in the rendering, but I've never seen...

Re: Parcel P (Foundation Medicine) | 400 Summer Street | Seaport

Looks like a beautifully mutated overgrown 1920s factory.

Re: General Boston Discussion.

And our legacy will be a fuzzy photo of some ugly 1970s buildings.

Re: Volpe Transportation Center Development | Kendall Sq | Cambridge

Thanks! This is very good news. A skyscraper in Kendall will really bring the cityscape into a new league and perhaps a couple other big buildings would follow
