Re: General Boston Discussion.

You have to build projects next door to major transit hubs (like Tremont Crossing at Ruggles to at least 400~450'). Build like Seattle and Vancouver. 284' instead of just shy of 400' is epic fail, and a classic example of a neighborhood and 1 or 2 councilors conspiring to effectively, shoot themselves in the foot. The 100' lost off each tower, and additionally, the hotel space would have paid for scores of additional housing units–that now, will not be built. ...and a huge opportunity lost.

Re: General Boston Discussion.

Wasn't sure where else to post this (seems there's no general North End thread):

City to break ground on North Square Reconstruction Project.

Also, there's a call to artists for public art:

Re: General Boston Discussion.

I've got no idea where to put this, but a specific page from this company was posted on the Omni Hotel thread. There's a lot of interesting unbuilt stuff here.

Cool. I wonder if all of those unbuilt renders (e.g., the Kenmore Square Gensler building) are scrapped projects or if any of them are still coming.

Interesting too that they have tenant-specific renders (e.g., Digitas office renders in Hub on Causeway) that were presumably used by brokers.

Yeah. That makes me think that some of these are still coming - these aren't really "unbuilt" as much as they are drafts (unless you look at the arcologies...).

We know that something is coming at that Kenmore location, for instance. I'm also curious about the "Confidential" one that's clearly South Station for Hines. It resembles what they've proposed on one end, so I wonder if a bigger proposal is coming if they ever get the first phase off the ground.

We dodged a bullet on the Hub on Causeway residential tower, according to this.
