Love their optimistic inclusion of a bike lane in that first render... And the inclusion of a cyclist on that section of Tremont which just murderous to cycle on

Note that virtually all the people drawn in the sketches are white?

They really aren't though. In many renders, yes, but not in these.

Don't think there's much new here design-wise. I'm sure you could find some new store logos on the renders if you look hard.

Re: Tremont Crossing | Roxbury

This is such an important project. Bit by bit, the city is being stitched back together. If we can keep this going down through the RCC parking lots we'll really be onto something here.

Controversial opinion but to really stitch back together this stretch of Tremont they need to knock down that eyesore of a BPD HQ and start again there. just look at it, its the most miserable stretch of tremont to walk down, its a pretty abysmal use of space across the road from a transit station, they're parking lot is absolutely massive (and yet they still block a lane of tremont by illegally parking in it). Plus that weird cell tower (??) on the other side of the building?
Dont get me wrong its a cool bit of architecture but walking alongside it on tremont feels like walking next to a prison, it a terrible space for pedestrians. The side that backs onto the SW bike path is marginally better but the fencing and weird art back there combined with the architecture just makes it feel, oddly threatening at night.

and lets not forget its next to a big transit station and is a massive waste of space.

Plus these lazy, selfish cops park in the grass across the street as you can see in the overhead picture you posted. It looks disgusting because they rip up the grass. Boston cops do not give a damn about drivers breaking laws because they are criminal drivers themselves. They could save lives by simply doing the job they are paid to do and enforcing traffic laws, but they have consciously chosen not to.

The police are in a bad situation regarding traffic enforcement. There aren't enough hours in the day or the manpower to stop every vehicle doing something wrong. And If they pulled over a car for a minor infraction at rush hour it could potentially bring a whole section of the city to a standstill.

Sounds like the police busted you for something.

Re: Tremont Crossing | Roxbury

Wow, I missed this project somehow. What an amazing addition to the area, adding some more density alongside the NU buildings and the hotel going up on Melnea Cass.

I like the look of these outdoor shopping centers, but I just wonder what it will be like on a windy, cold January or February day with snow and salt everywhere. Will people really ride the T to Ruggles and walk over to go to some chain store that they can find elsewhere? Good for the area residents, though.

Looks like it's finally going to happen: https://www.bostonglobe.com/business...fMN/story.html

They've secured all the necessary permissions and just have to sign the ground lease.

Site work for this $700 million project could begin this summer, if not sooner. Buildings would start to go up next year.
That sounds too optimistic

If everything is approved and financing is secured what's too optimistic about that?

Five years from now this will be an amazing neighborhood: Tremont Crossing, a rebuilt Whittier Street Complex, Northeastern's ISEC II and possibly another Northeastern dorm on Parcel 18.

Better to say, how many theaters can this market (however "this market" is objectively construed) support, given how "how many theaters does this city need?" is ultimately a rhetorical question.

If the market is the entire population base within the coverage zone of the MBTA subway/trolley system [which seems like a rough facsimile of "urban Boston" to me], then perhaps it can support a lot more.

After all, as recently as 5 years ago, municipal Boston had only 31 screens left, right? (19 at Boston Common, 12 at Fenway, I think)

Surely the marketing analysts for the theaters are reviewing Boston's galloping population increase, how much GDP/disposable income the newcomers are bringing, etc., etc.
