Two categories where SF blows Boston's doors--we can't justly ignore;

1. # of Fortune 1000 companies.
2. # of rich and ultra rich people worth over say, $100M, $1B, etc.

The numbers are staggering. There are a few other categories where SF blows Boston's doors, such as total investment capital, tech startups, etc. Then, in other ways, Boston's MSA compares somewhat favorably to SF.

In reality, Boston was doing much worse than any of its quasi-peer cities 50 years ago, but still has catching up to do especially on transit and housing production.
‘But all the white people left’ sounds more like a Southie bigot’s rationalization. San Francisco was practically leveled by an earthquake in 1906. Any more excuses?

Re: Future Skylines/Developments of the US

White flight didn't hurt cities because it was specifically white people who were leaving, it hurt because it took sizable population chunks out of the city and combined with the multitude of other problems cities were facing at the time, ate away at neighborhoods.

Re: Future Skylines/Developments of the US

LA

They have a lot of projects coming online. Add to that that theyre more than doubling their rail transit to become the 2nd most extensive metro in America after NYC, even ahead of Chicago, and theres lots of changes on the horizon.

Theyre rezoning the areas around their transit system and expansion areas as well to allow it to densify over time. In 20 years LA is going to look very different after the rail network has been done for a bit and the areas around it have had time to get denser. The skyline will be a lot different too, but Im definitely more interested in how their sprawl changes with rail.

Theyre actively rezoning around transit to build up density. The sprawl can be good in a way since the city is filled in and now they can focus on making it much denser and giving all of those people more accessibility. Its going to be really cool to see a denser LA and to see their fullscale embrace of rail. Theyre tired of the horrific traffic so they cant build rail fast enough. This is a perfect example of where transit will directly help commuters shave lots of time off their commutes and it should make lots of the city more accessible and “closer”. Anyways heres a lot of the projects coming up.

Re: Future Skylines/Developments of the US

I gotta say, Im definitely a fan of the transit center. At first it was giving me flashbacks to the govt ctr garage. Now that I see it though I think its a huge net positive, the bridge is wonderful, and the park looks great too. If they do end up tieing in hsr its gonna be perfect. Hope so.

Yea. It only has 1 side that matters at least. The other 3 are facing a highway, off ramp, and bridge. Its not the best but they are improving a shit area.

EVEN WORSE. They have ONE side to get right. That was it. And they still think they are in some office park. This is why height is a stupid fetish.

They definitely can do better but height has no bearing whatsoever on whether a tower has a good base or not. This having no spire makes it a non “height fetish” type of tower as well. The height is roof height aka occupiable space aka return on investment. The tower is a long way from being built, if it ever is, so it has plenty of time to change the base.

Re: Future Skylines/Developments of the US

There is certainly enough demand but this is how Kendall, DOT, Fenway, and I'd even say like Malden through the Assembly area SHOULD look.
