According to one of my former coworkers who is still at PTC and PTC is moving into this building as its new HQ from Needham, the company is going to pay something like $350/mo. per person so everyone can have a parking spot.

And we wonder why the Seaport has a traffic problem?

Providing monthly T passes would seem to be the way to go.

Some companies want employees to get to work on time.

Only in Boston do we focus construction in the least accessible areas while downsizing projects that are right on the T. (cough, Hub on Causeway, cough)

SST is the only building ever approved to the max FAA height limit outside of the Seaport.

The approach to building the Seaport has been: "What do people love about Boston? OK, let's not do any of that. What's Atlanta up to?"

Although wholly incorrect in the insinuation.
But, you have your fun.
I'll take the smart money on the train getting me into the city on time vs. the traffic gamble.

All of those Boston neighborhoods we all love have not gone anywhere and nothing was demolished to make the seaport. To me I appreciate the effort going into the ground level here since we are so height restricted. The L3-6, N-P, M parcels, 150 seaport, and pier 4 all look actually incredible. Just hold off until those are done and reassess if you still hate the seaport. Please, its still very very much a work in progress. Transit though yes have at it.

A lot of the nicer neighborhoods also benefit from having a hundred years of time to develop unique cultures, identities and destinations. The Seaport isn't even finished.

I'm sorry, but that kind of lazy reasoning misses the key point.

How many of those 100+ year old neighborhoods are built one-building-per block? Neighborhoods are made up of NEIGHBORS - - both human and architecture.

The "one building per block" method is anti-social at its root. Houstonians are famous for saying "The best neighbor is a good fence".

Architecture matters. A neighborhood of solitary islands, separated by moats we call streets, is no "neighborhood". Short of demolition and rebuilding differently, it will never be.

I think it will only get worse, I do not think this architecture will age well at all. At least it will eventually be underwater if we don't build a seawall, that could provide the grit we were talking about in the other thread.

How exactly does a uniform glass facade with uniform glass doors develop any unique culture?

The whole design is so this crap is modular. In the exact same space they can put in 7 small food counters, 2 banks, or 1 big CVS. All look the same from the outside.

Re: 121 Seaport Boulevard | Parcel L2 | Seaport Square

Do I have to share my own post about wait for L3-6, N-P, M parcels, 150 seaport, and pier 4? Those aren't built one building per block, they're not uniform glass facades, not modular, and they actually look incredible based off the renders....... Ill repeat myself, wait. You guys just listed off everything that is being fixed in this next phase of construction. Its still a huge construction site here and you guys are going crazy. If you guys think those mentioned above are a step in the wrong direction then what do you propose for a 250' cap that is better than those? Lets see it because those are damn good. The L parcels also have a theater space and grocery store going in which people were begging for, hell seaport sq is even finishing up its movie theater by the day.

Again transit-yes, hold off on bitching about this place until its actually a neighborhood, because there are actually lots of good buildings u/c right now. You just cant see them yet because they are u/c...
