    Boston Landing | New Balance Complex | Brighton

    Saw LCD earlier this week at Roadrunner. Great sound, and the space really absorbed the crowd. Line was around the block to get in and I think security got us through in maybe 5 minutes. Good impression all around

    Stanhope Hotel | 39 Stanhope Street | Back Bay

    Fucking Globe... this is anything but a "quiet corner". IDK why but that title is really rubbing me the wrong way. Between the Friendly Toast and Flour during the day, then the Red Lantern, Mistral, and Club Cafe, that area is hopping constantly. I literally logged back in just to complain...

    Harvard - Allston Campus

    It's great to see the producers of Westworld putting so much effort into their set design for the upcoming season

    Green Line Reconfiguration

    Hi. This was always kind of my baby, so I might as well reply... Riverside, when you're running your calculations I think it's important to consider a Oak Square via Common Ave and Boston College via Comm Ave as one line together, not two. Demand dramatically drops off beyond Harvard Ave, hence...

    Fantasy T maps

    I do still lurk form time to time. Got a job as an Architectural Designer in Vermont right around when I stopped posting, moved up here and have a massive piece of land and falling apart house. With all that my time is 150% spoken for, I haven't logged in until now. But it rained all day today...

    Assembly Row Development | Assembly Square | Somerville

    They had to do a bunch of electrical work around the site to power it up, and some structural work to the outside. Seems to be moving a lot faster now.

    Mixed Use | Wharf 8 & Pier 7 | Seaport

    Isn't the drydock still used occasionally? I may be getting it confused with another one

    Suffolk County Courthouse Discussion | 3 Pemberton Square | Government Center

    Step 1: Build new Suffolk County Courthouse Step 2: Upgrade and rehabilitate existing structure into new City Hall. Step 3: Demolish Center Plaza 2 and 3, extending Pemberton Square to Cambridge Street. Step 4: Redevelop all of Government Center to recoup costs. I never thought the new Suffolk...

    That sounds awesome. You'll probably be really happy if you move there.

    Fan Pier Developments | Seaport

    With the northern ave bridge closed and all the construction fan pier is currently an island. Hopefully when the cross streets reopen the area will appear more permiable, and encourage the kind of foot traffic you see further down by legals. It's also COLD down there in the winter. Street life...

    General MBTA Topics (Multi Modal, Budget, MassDOT)

    Porter makes the same mistake that most modern transit stops (inexplicably?) make. They try to BE a place instead of existing WITHIN a space.

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    ...good to be back?? :rolleyes: I'm actually around daily, but I'm finishing up my thesis, preparing to move out of state, etc, etc. So my only posts tend to be out of frustration when I think I'm going to click on a topic I'm interested in, and instead read two pages of unrelated drivel...

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    Guys, this thread is about the northern extension thats actually happening. It has barely anything to do with extensions beyond Porter, and nothing at all to do with the red line. We've already talked about all of this, ad nausium, in: Green Line Reconfiguration Reasonable Transit Pitches...

    Assembly Row Development | Assembly Square | Somerville

    It's been sitting like that well over a month, I think they're waiting for the connector park, or some adjacent businesses to get finished before they open

    Boston Landing | New Balance Complex | Brighton

    Remember Beacon Park was a horse track before it was a railroad yard, so the name has a history of sticking.

    Encore Boston Harbor Casino | 1 Broadway | Everett

    Re: Wynn Everett Casino | Everett There are three marinas and a public boat launch on the Mystic, which leads to lines on both sides of the locks all summer long. The dam is well patronized, trust me.
