Under Construction UMass Boston Residence Hall 1 | Columbia Point | Dorchester

Seems like an interesting design for the continued evolution of the UMass Boston complex out on Columbia Point...

Hey, that was the only reason UMass Boston wasn't appealing to most people. Now, wow!

But why can't I find this in a Google news search? Is this the plan that was scrapped a few years ago?

Bah, it looks like One Western Ave, which itself looks like a redux of something penned in the late 50s. At least this one is far enough away from me that I won't ever have to look at it.

Yah, I'm starting to doubt that this is new news. Not even the UMass Boston website says anything about it. That's too bad, I've always felt sorry of UMB because they have such a crappy campus. This project would have made it sooooooooo much better.

Yeah seriously. This is the HBS addition on a smaller level. I really don't like that building and it seems like this will be exactly the same thing but smaller and crappier.

A dorm was proposed several years ago, but rejected (by the state legislature maybe?). I don't know why.

Come-on guys. You're supposed to ignore the troll not feed it . Only a troll would ask for updates on a 10 year old thread.
