    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    Is it just me or are the slides really blurry? For Union square, having one egress point be emergency only is a huge offense to those living on the other side.

    Hanover St "Tower" | 244 Hanover St | North End

    And brick? Page 1 says: "The three units per floor would vary its offered amenities, and the exterior copper-clad facades would age nicely and help this new complex mesh with the existing neighborhood fabric."

    Why on earth is the left window closed off like that?

    Encore Boston Harbor Casino | 1 Broadway | Everett
