Sounds like a merger of 2 tech companies.

Wouldn't it be nice if they were as creative with the architecture as they are with the marketing names?

If they butchered architecture the way they butcher the English language we would end up with some Nth-dimension, causality-violating, non-Euclidean nightmare space.

Sorry, I don't see "THAIC" anywhere in that document. That acronym isn't coming from the developers...

It is. I just didn't want to write out "The Allston Innovation Corridor" in the thread title, and I think there are already several other projects called "Nexus".

Right, "THAIC" isn't a thing. It's not a name that anyone is putting forward; it's an acronym that you invented. It seems kind of silly to me to concoct your own name for a project then immediately make fun of that name.

And are there any other Boston buildings called Nexus? I don't know of any...

My comment was referring to the whole long chain of words - I figured folks would realize that. Sorry!

I'll be sad to see The Breakfast Club go. With this and "Scape" (ugh) we'll be losing some unique neighborhood places.

The Breakfast Club is one of the best places anywhere in the area. So sad.
