    Back Bay Garage Tower | Dartmouth and Stuart | Back Bay

    Okay... a few things. 1) Back Bay Station is an entrance to the city, not one of the main ones. 2) Grand Central Terminal is literally one of the finest passenger rail terminals in the world by most metrics. Back Bay Station--though functional--is not. It's like comparing Orson Welles' Citizen...

    Logan Airport Capital Projects

    ^^My guess is air flow for construction crews until HVAC is fully installed/operational. With all that glass and this summer heat, it would get pretty hot in that terminal.

    1270 Commonwealth Avenue (Old CVS Site) | Allston

    1400 Boylston Street | Star Market & Gulf | Fenway

    I wondered the exact same thing. At the end of the day, I think this whole design is the path of least resistance. Worried about shadows on Boylston Street & the Emerald Necklace? Make a generous setback from Park Drive. Looking to preserve sight lines for your flatiron tenants/owners at the...

    25 Garvey Street | Everett

    ^^Yeah, double checked and looks like this must be for the lot just west of 35 Garvey Street. Any guesses on how quickly this one gets through Everett's review ? 😆

    EXP | 795 Columbus Avenue | Northeastern University

    It’s incredible how ‘dated’ these new buildings make Snell Library and Curry Student Center look. Hopefully the next IMP proposes a library/student center revamp consistent with the scale and quality of materials NU’s seeing on EXP and ISEC.
