Should the Aquarium Garage Thread be reopened?

Let's see if the public supports Statler's lock-down of the thread.

Re: Should the Aquarium Garage Thread be reopened?

Statler,

This is really stupid and ignorant. Sorry that bloggers, or architectural gurus don't write what you want them to to write to keep the thread open.

It's funny how things I have written in the past are actually starting to have some substance. I said the best thing the Aquarium could do is instead of going against the project they should collaborate and reinvest in their own development .

Look at the news on what is trying to evolve.

Gee. I called this 5 years ago. Somebody must have read the original thread of my postings.

Re: Should the Aquarium Garage Thread be reopened?

Actually the pool is best part. There's nothing like my own little bit of useless suburban sprawl in the heart of an over-crowded city.

And there is a space to discuss the garage development. We can use that thread to call each other names and write our fanfic about Don Chiofaro and his huge, glistening...tower. Have at it.
Once there is real, concrete news (i.e. not trial balloons and media speculation/opinions) that the adults in the room can talk about, I will reopen the main thread.

Yea, the pool is like the ultimate piece of FU from the already-haves to the generation that's placed out of working professional housing who would love to live near downtown boston.

I'm sad they didn't have space to install a polo field too. Maybe that's what should go in place of the harbor garage, fenced off, of course, but with a low enough fence as to provide harbor views to non-harbor tower residents:

Polo Field
The playing field is 300 by 160 yards (270 by 150 m), the approximate area of nine American football fields
(sorry I am indulging in this BS because it's this thread not the real thread. I voted to keep the real thread closed)

All of this is for naught; he couldn't get into their gated community to pee in their pool.

Re: Should the Aquarium Garage Thread be reopened?

Meanwhile, there's still no thread merge from the other thread that has as yet not been merged with the old main, used-to-be-open-but-not-anymore, defunct, former thread, even though we have a real project with multiple dozens of hundreds of millons of dollars soon to be coming from banks, and a skyscraper being rammed through with every bit as much force as the battering ram that caused the Garden Garage to be rammed through. Of course, complaining about it is the equivalent of handing the Board Overlords more free crack.

Re: Should the Aquarium Garage Thread be reopened?

The cracks in this forum want to dictate on what you say and what is said in the threads.
They want to control what is said and what isnt. It's okay that West and Stellarfun were talking all this legal stuff concerning Cronin project in the threads but if one of us brings up a topic we just get attack and removed from the thread that doesn't have anything related to Architecture.

Its a joke. A bunch of Liberal Hypocrites---It's okay--- we can say whatever we want but we will attack you if you express your thoughts and ideas.

I also believe there is an agenda on this site concerning certain individuals definitely with Stellarfun and Justin. Not sure why they care about anybody on what they actually post concerning there own thoughts and opinion.

Re: Should the Aquarium Garage Thread be reopened?

i've called for a class action lawsuit against Nimby for Profit actions by the CLF in the Globe comments section;

The HG thread and the HG thread in exile should be merged;

1. The City has given Chiofaro the license to build a 600'/900,000 sq ft tower.

2. The CLF is bringing a lawsuit against the HG project courtesy of Boston billionaire Amos Hostetter.....
