    Pinnacle at Central Wharf (Harbor Garage) | 70 East India Row | Waterfront | Downtown

    I would assume the containers would get dirty over time but looking at typical container yards they seem to surprisingly retain their color. Although I can appreciate the modern elements of the current design, the over all building seems to be just under the iconic factor needed for this...

    Pinnacle at Central Wharf (Harbor Garage) | 70 East India Row | Waterfront | Downtown

    How about an homage to the working port of Boston with a container tower and a splash of color! credit; https://www.dezeen.com/2015/08/20/shipping-container-skyscraper-crg-architects-replace-slum-housing/

    General Boston Discussion.

    Twin City Plaza Somerville has been active with a boring truck taking samples in the parking lot from McGraph Hwy all the way over to the Gore St entrance, any ideas of what is being considered for development?

    I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

    There needs to be another bridge over the Charles that would provide a more direct route from Memorial Drive to the turnpike interchange A new one way Pleasant Street Bridge out of Cambridge that aligns with Hotel Way which appears to be an under utilized street could be an option.

    Hurley Building Redevelopment | 19 Staniford St | West End

    It also shows the long Union Street hotel and tower, not built, on the other side of City Hall. I prefer the park. I hope the entire complex gets ultra modernist architectural incorporation of rusticated steel, wood and glass shell that basically saves the original building as an interior...

    One Kenmore Square | 560 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

    It will only lead to the same old complaint that the bar's last call will be 12:29. On another note, I don't like how Commonwealth Ave is interrupted as a grand bollard into Kenmore. It is out of box thinking though, moving the building into the square to satisfy the next door neighbors. I think...

    Red Line Extension to Mattapan

    If it gets replaced, it will most likely be replaced with a Silverline type system, which will be fine if the traffic crossings are synced in the buses favor; unlike D Street. (Opinion)

    General Infrastructure

    Waiting at traffic light does make for suspenseful scenes in a couple of movies though! On another note, when traveling Commonwealth, you can't help but think there is a traffic algorithm in use that utilizes every one of the pedestrian crossings as a traffic calming device.

    West Cambridge / Alewife Area Infill & Small Developments

    \\ The Biogen and Monster campus would be a great location for a station / stop, plenty of parking already. How long before Indeed buys out Monster? Bio-gen should be downtown. Brandeis students can Lyft over to their campus. If the site became available, it would be a great opportunity.

    West Cambridge / Alewife Area Infill & Small Developments

    Long term planning, the Porter commuter stop could be pushed to Alwife when the the Green Line union square line is extended to Porter.

    Let's Make Boston More Fun

    Allow public drinking... (only joking) The State / City needs a "Zar" of Let's Make Boston More Fun " A couple of ideas for the Zar... Attract more national sponsored contests like when Red Bull had diving at the harbor. It was a lot of fun to watch and drew large crowds. Have a public Tough...

    Hurley Building Redevelopment | 19 Staniford St | West End

    Suffolk Superior Court is about to fall down. The State should sell the Suffolk Tower to a developer with the caveat that the Hurley and Lindermann get re-purposed into a new Suffolk courthouse; a program that could take advantage of the existing architectural language. Employment and Mental...

    MBTA Bus & BRT

    I actually took the 80 from Lechmere up to Pats towing on Mystic last Thursday. At 11 am the bus had 10 people on or off the route; especially along Main St.. I thought that was good ridership for the middle of the morning. The customer base was parents/nannies/babysitters with strollers. The...

    Allston Yards (Stop and Shop) | 60 Everett St | Allston

    I can't believe these new buildings cant be integrated into the station somehow to allow for elevators or escalators, especially up to the peak of Everett bridge.

    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    Looks like they are taking one floor for office, one less residential. This is not going to help with the housing shortage. (wink)
