    Union Square D6 | Somerville

    I really hope they break up the facade of that building along Somerville Ave. I know it might be a bit fake or Disneyfied, but a long low building running the length of the block will take a whole lot of character out of the square. and putting 122 underground parking spaces in is just daft...

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    I find it crazy how the T are so bad at messaging on this. I thought, during the close down, they were actually getting better at it. But no. Even the orange line slow downs, seems like their message didn't get out broadly enough, and no messaging on any GLX slow down.

    If a utility company was putting in a new row of poles along a street, I’d expect them to all be the same height.

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    yea, I guess it would be aesthetic. I presumed it would be a given. I don't get why we'd budget for art installations at the stations before it even looks finished. This is not a slight on having art installations.

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    so in layman's terms. They're all different sizes because the ground they're in is different? Why not put them in then top them off at the same height above ground? Only the AC poles being higher but them also being uniform with each other?

    thanks for the info, good to hear they're back testing straight away after the shut down.

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    The lack of street lights between cross and Washington seems crazy. It’s the darkest section of the path by some distance.

    Green Line Type 10 Procurement

    Ah Memories, I used to live in Freiburg. If the green line can run even half as well as their system, we'll be doing well!

    Middle East Nightclub Redevelopment | 468-480 Mass Ave / 6 Brookline St. | Cambridge

    I didn't go to the venue too much but for years I drank at the corner bar after work. There was a great bar man there called Bobby! River Gods, the Field, the Peoples Republik and now the ME all gone from central in recent years. A lot of decent drinking holes gone.

    100 Chestnut Street | Inner Belt | Somerville

    this could definitely have done with being a bit taller and narrower! Hopefully it turns out alright but doesn't set the tone for the rest of brick bottom.

    Assembly Innovation Park | 5 Middlesex Ave | Somerville

    Well, after what, 8 years of development in the area, it’s still a mess.

    Assembly Innovation Park | 5 Middlesex Ave | Somerville

    Countless millions to build all this and I still had to walk through glass and trash in the depressing Kensington underpass today. Has no one ever heard of public private partnership.

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    interesting, is there activity on the path? In fairness, If they are still using it for construction, I've no issue.

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    am I right in thinking that construction on the rail section of the Medford branch has stopped for the duration of the shutdowns? If so does it not make sense to finish off the path and open it as an extra option to get down town? Seems like it just needs somerville to paint 3 crosswalks and...

    Also seems mad that they haven't installed any lights between cross st and Washington st.
