    Kenmore Square North | 533-541 Commonwealth Ave | Fenway

    To make matters worse, this building is clearly visible on the Sox TV broadcast, every time a home run clears the monster. Millions of people across the world are going to see it 81 days a year.

    National Development Mixed-Use | 323-345 Dorchester Avenue | South Boston

    Hot damn. Built it now Then build twenty more.

    Marine Industrial Park | Seaport

    In Tokyo sushi restaurants, one of the most prized cuts on the menu is "Boston Tuna"--fish that's caught here, flash-frozen, and then immediately flown out of Logan to Japan.

    Midtown Hotel Redevelopment | 220 Huntington Avenue | Back Bay

    If we're moving brownstones, there's only one neighborhood they should go to: Roxbury, to help rebuild the once thriving urban fabric there that was deliberately destroyed.

    MBTA Commuter Rail (Operations, Keolis, & Short Term)

    Run a train through those towns, though, and they’d probably undergo some pretty rapid and significant growth (particularly in light of the new zoning law). Every time I drive through Medfield I’m tempted to pull up Zillow—the little downtown is that beautiful—but I would never actually consider...

    Marine Industrial Park | Seaport

    Maybe one day we can move ALL the jobs out of the city! Stick this stuff out past 128. Cities are for living, not working!

    Parcel 12 | Massachusetts Avenue at Boylston Street | Back Bay

    Are there any renderings of the Newbury Street side of this? Sure would be nice if this stretch could be de-alleyfied a bit.

    Clippership Wharf | East Boston

    The ICA runs a ferry between Fan Pier and Piers Park. It’s designed to connect visitors to their shipyard annex, but anyone can buy a ticket. There definitely should be something cheaper, though.

    One Post Office Square Makeover and Expansion | Financial District

    The Custom House Tower is really going to pop from this angle when the glass is up.

    "Dirty Old Boston"

    The molasses tank was located right on the water, where those ballfields and pool are located now. There's a plaque there.

    Roslindale Infill and Small Developments

    An important development that adds much needed density and paves the way for further height in the square revealed its facade this week and, uhhh, god damn it: Roslindale Square is filled with some truly beautiful old brick buildings, and this hideous, suburban siding spits at all of them...

    Bay Village Apartment Tower | 212 Stuart St. | Bay Village

    Exactly. Given it's combination of scale, architecture, quietude, and walkable access to. . . literally everything, Bay Village is one of the very best urban neighborhoods in the entire country.

    Widett Circle Development, so it begins.

    As recently as 1965 it still extended all the way to Newmarket: And both of those waterways are still there, in the form of culverts that empty into the channel here: If full-scale development in this location is just too difficult at this point, can we at least deck a park over the tracks...

    Reasonable Transit Pitches

    Bingo. I live in the square now, and I’m only ever a “bus person” when the train schedule forces me to be one.

    Boynton Yards | 101-153 South Street | Somerville

    What's the story with this housing? Is it part of the bigger project and how much are we getting?
