100 A Street:



I wonder if this will get filled in. There are so many restaurant spaces with better foot traffic still empty nearby:

There is nothing not to like. Everything is in its place. Nothing is superfluous, someone took to time to tune all the parts. The only thing its not is expensive, guady, trendy.

This is design folks. Good solid purpose driven design. Get into it.

Now THIS is great and contextual to its surroundings. No diagonal slat/shading over windows, etc. But it also has boldness at the same time - - yes Bold CAN be contextual. It doesn't have to be BU's 665 Comm Ave proposal. This respects and enhances its area.

I still don't understand the merits of the "Y" brace (design or otherwise).

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

I think it helps 'split' the street better by creating a more dramatically sharp edge that would've otherwise would've been hard to do with a balcony or room.

There must have been massive neighborhood opposition to this, anyone go to the community meetings?
