Re: What's Happening With Project X?

I have not heard of anything like this .. as far as I know, you definitely stumbled on to something.

Anyone?

Odd that one of their images would be of their 20-storey building blocking sunlight onto a public park.

The city assessor's website says that Morgan Memorial owns 333 Tremont but the county deeds site says it's the Feeney Bros out of Quincy.

Feeney Bros have been using the site as a satellite office and storage location for their earthmoving equipment being deployed in Boston (storage on the surface parking next to the park). It is a real eyesore!

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

Briefly:

Quote:
The opening act of the long-planned Huntington Avenue project – involving construction of a new 32-story apartment tower and simultaneous renovation of the next-door Huntington Theatre – gets underway early next year when development group QMG Huntington LLC starts demolishing two small buildings in preparation for full-scale construction along the city’s “Avenue of the Arts.”

Executives at QMG, a partnership of Quinlong Management and Boston-based Matteson Cos. and GFI Partners, and the administrative cast at the Huntington Theatre hope to be taking bows after completion of the new 426-unit residential tower and refurbished theater in mid-2021.

Haymarket Hotel: Something is going on here. The road next to it is all torn up, and many haymarket vendors moved along the road/sidewalk when I walked by the other day.

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

There was a huge piece concerning upgrades in the city and how the major developments should be focused on locating on rapid transit lines.

#1 Question: When the Seaport was all parking lots-- why didn't our city & state planners decide to invest our funds in Rapid transit lines underground in the Seaport to connect the Seaport with the rest of the city?

The purple line bus does not do anything for the amount of traffic congestion around this city. Walking from Downtown to Seaport is just too cold in the winter time. This is forcing more car commuting into the area without efficient transit.

This is the biggest failure that the city & state, BRA have addressed is not connected the Seaport with the rest of Boston. Seaport is like its only little rich community backed on 100Million in tax dollars.

Traffic congesting is at a point of imploding---Just factor in the casino opening in June how that will affect 93N/S.

Nothing is being addressed concerning overbuilding old & outdated infrastructure.

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

I actually agree with you Rifleman on the seaport, it is its own little rich white enclave over there. And honestly, its like fuck it I dont have to go over there if I dont want to. And fuck them they dont deserve heavy rail they wouldnt appreciate it anyway.

My biggest pet peeve is that I have to get off the silver line and walk across the street and down into south station to get over to the seaport. How difficult or costly could it possibly have been to have a portal to make it one singular journey? Doesnt seem impossible or really overly expensive to get that done. They did really cheap out on public transit over there and it is on the city and state. They dropped the ball BIG time
