    One Bromfield | 1 Bromfield Street | Downtown

    There are a few storefronts on Bromfield that have literally been vacant since the late 90s. Over 2 decades.

    I count 10 birds flying in that pic! Did I miss any? Love the pic for many reasons.

    The New Retail Thread

    According to the Brookline Tab, the new Comm. Ave Taco Bell will be their "Cantina" concept (i.e. alcohol served and sit down dining). https://brookline.wickedlocal.com/news/20200227/taco-bell-tolls-for-brookline?fbclid=IwAR3sMtK9uzofzaIBufxnpItELYUfLyhmPfQbw3D8YfZ6qMUGGEsjbgKbKag Has anyone...

    The New Retail Thread

    Easy compromise. Let him open until 2am on the weekends only for now. If there are no major issues after a period of time, he should be able to seek to expand the hours during the week. Absurd that a taco shop can't stay open until bar time on the weekends at least.

    The New Retail Thread

    Interesting that 872 Comm Ave is in Brookline. How close is that to the Boston line? One building over?

    Encore Boston Harbor Casino | 1 Broadway | Everett

    To all the people suggesting a pool, there are really only 3 full months a year that a pool can operate around here. June, July and August. Sure, parts of May and September might also be doable depending on the weather but we routinely get 60 degree temps in both months especially the first...

    Wellesley Office Park Master Plan | William Street | Wellesley

    There are at least six 40B projects currently seeking permitting in Wellesley. https://www.wellesleyma.gov/893/Chapter-40B-Development-Projects and yes, pardon me, a hair under 90,000 people live in Newton, not 100,000.

    Downtown Crossing | Discussion

    I moved down the street from Bromfield Street in 1998. Many of the storefronts that were vacant at that time are still vacant to this day 22 years later.

    Wellesley Office Park Master Plan | William Street | Wellesley

    Comparing Newton (especially the Northland and Riverside projects) to Wellesley is silly. Newton is a large city with a six figure population that has several subway/trolley stops and large transportation centers like Riverside. Putting the silly comparison aside, I thought Wellesley did have...

    Skating Club of Boston/Studio Allston Redevelopment | 1240/1234 Soldiers Field Rd | Allston

    Is there a new strategy to not release building heights or # of floors that I am not aware of?

    Sounds like you have never met a serious gambler. LOL.

    The Alcott (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

    Now even $5,000 a month is outrageous for a 2 bedroom in a brand new luxury building in some of the most desirable locations in town? I am all for seeing rents and housing prices in general come down but we need to be realistic. We are never going to see $3,000/month for a 2 bedroom in a brand...

    Boylston Place (née Scape Student Housing) | 1252-1268 Boylston Street | Fenway

    As an attorney, I can't help but wonder what legal force "try to avoid" has. Sounds highly subjective. "We did try hard to avoid leasing more than 25% of the units to undergads but our efforts were not successful." "try to avoid" = worthless. Sounds like just silly neighborhood optics to me.

    Logan Airport Flights and Airlines Discussion

    JetBlue tweeted it this morning. I just went back to look for the tweet and it has since been deleted although you can still see that the JetBlue account did respond to a tweet this am about things to do in Bozeman. Hmmmm.....
