Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

Should this have its own thread? It seems more substantial than simply "infill"

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

The biggest failure in that picture is the sidewalk.

No trees.

About 5 feet of walking space.

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

This thread is so distinctive. So many small projects going up in such a small area, which so much diversity among them - at least in the specifics.

But they are (almost?) universally cheap, careless, and fugly.

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

Those ground floors demonstrate what minimum parking requirements looks like. Also, I'd do a significant road diet to reduce the amount of pavement, widen the sidewalks, and add street trees along both sides.

Yes and Chlamydia is better than AIDS, but that doesn't (necessarily) mean we should all aspire to Chlamydia...

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

It means most of the infill is of higher quality than what currently exists.
