Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

If you're considering Boston the 21st biggest city in the US, then there has been no addition of any casino.
Metro Boston is an important region.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Re: Boynton Yards | 1-2 Earle Street | Somerville

boring lump of a building.
Doesn't instill much confidence when they cant get the route of the GLX right on their very first image. (it seems to be on McGrath Highway)

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

the whole march to the match thing is actually not very European or South American. It's more of a MLS thing. MLS supporters groups looked at the behavior of fringe European ultras groups and made...

Re: Union Square Redevelopment | Somerville

I don't think it would hem anyone in, it would be between Rickys and what ever they build on the site of the police station. Yea, it would be one more junction on Somerville Ave, but I'd be alright...

Re: Union Square Redevelopment | Somerville

You can do it by doing a better job of knitting the new buildings in to the existing neighborhood.
For me, Rickys is a great example of natural urban regeneration. I think it looks great and acts...

Re: Union Square Redevelopment | Somerville

Perhaps lazy was a bit rash but I don't think it's a plaza.
I don't see anyone seeking out this space for recreational purposes.

Re: Union Square Redevelopment | Somerville

Usually I'm all for development but I'm not loving this.

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

yea, cant get my head around 'only one league can be the Major league'. Presumably that would be the Premier League, which would imply Bayern, Real, Barca and Juve are minor league teams.
Anyway,...

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

Tailgating is fun but I'd far prefer some pints in pubs in town then a stroll to the stadium with the crowd getting heavier as streets merge closer to the stadium. That might just be nostalgia tho.

Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

I know it will never happen and I'm just thinking aloud but how difficult would it be to replace about 30-40% of those grey panels with windows. I presume the inside is mostly open plan and the...

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

I think at the moment it's foolish to suggest that MLS is as popular as the NHL but it's equally foolish to suggest that it will never be.

We're talking about a facility to watch live sport here. MLS is the biggest soccer league in the US and Canada (a market of 360 odd million). It's the most watched soccer league in this area. It...

Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

The average attendance might only go up a small bit, perhaps 5k or so but the popularity of the team would grow immensely. Tickets would be difficult to come by for big games, the games would become...
