    Parcel 12 | Massachusetts Avenue at Boylston Street | Back Bay

    Wow, really? I get that being 10-20ft below street level skews the view a little, but isn’t it at least 3x the height of adjacent buildings? Also, do you go to Berklee?

    All of that looks pretty fun.

    Bulfinch Triangle Infill & Small Projects

    To be fair, this would be more in the Bulfinch Triangle area and not the North End proper. Still just across N Washington from the neighborhood though.

    Parcel 12 | Massachusetts Avenue at Boylston Street | Back Bay

    I don’t know about you all, but the renders didn’t really prepare me for how tall this was going to be. Drove into the city on the pike this afternoon, and boy does this loom.

    Raffles Boston (40 Trinity Place) | 426 Stuart Street | Back Bay

    Is it? Didn’t Cambridge get rid of the licenses a few decades ago?

    Why is going under broadway crazy-ville? They were doing cut-and-cover tunnels 100 years ago. Can’t be that logistically difficult in 2022, right?

    Not a single bench or place to sit visible.

    Bulfinch Crossing | Congress Street Garage | West End

    But these columns are underneath the station, not in the garage. I kind of get what was said before about “owning the liability” but it just seems like they’d be out of scope for garage maintenance.

    Bulfinch Crossing | Congress Street Garage | West End

    I guess it's no wonder the developer rolled back plans to build over the station if said station is being held up by sh*t like that! I'm also a little confused about why maintaining station infrastructure is HYM's responsibility. I'm sure they aren't the ones that let it get that bad down there.

    What if there was a totally new line that began and turned around at a station south of Malden rather than a branch? Wouldn’t that be more feasible since it shouldn’t impact frequencies on orange, only ridership?

    Allston LabWorks | 250, 280 and 305 Western Avenue | Allston

    Was that the Breakfast Club that got torn down? Shame.

    Verizon, Converse, and State Street aren’t enough?

    Bulfinch Crossing | Congress Street Garage | West End

    The city should take the land and make it a park or some other for-the-public space. It’s a terrible location for a hulking lab building.

    Revere Beach Developments/infill | Revere

    Is the landlord not legally obligated to put them up in a hotel or something??
