    Constellation Center is dead. Long live something else! Here are the renders. Kenmore Center Phase II made love to MIT Building 5. http://www.cambridgeday.com/2020/02/27/gas-transfer-station-is-removed-in-proposal-for-250-foot-lab-tower-with-public-arts-space/ That's a little more arts...

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

    According to Tim Logan's twitter, the meeting had nowhere near enough capacity. People are arguing with each other outside the room.

    Props to you for doing that! It's not a mystery why they oppose the tower - they want to keep the parking spaces. They've admitted that before. That's what Ron meant when he said it would "lower visitors".

    Not great optics on that pool at the moment. I guess that's why you typically cover pools in the winter...

    Constellation Center | 43 Thorndike St | East Cambridge

    The correct address is 585 Third Street, but I was waiting to point that out until we had proposal documents.

    Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike Parcel 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

    Isn't that true on every face? I know they have an elevation change and the passageway borders the parking garage, but this is a really non-permeable facade. The brickwork on the prior version at least helped it pretend, but now it looks almost hostile. Better than a freeway, but again, compare...

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

    Ah, the post-truth age, when tearing down a concrete box and replacing it with something narrower somehow "limits access". The worst part is that they don't ever have to justify this position, just as the CLF hasn't justified it when they've used that argument here and with Cronin. It's a...

    MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

    Which again raises the question: MIT knows what its students make. This is not market-governed housing. Why would the price-gouge people when they set the amount those people have to spend? The only plausible answers are (a) they aren't and we don't have all the information or (b) they're...

    MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

    But the counterpoint to that is: there's a whole petition on this, presumably run by students (Eastgate residents). If students were as happy with this arrangement as MIT is, why would we be hearing about it at all?

    Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike Parcel 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

    It's not bad on its own merits but when you compare to the far more thoughtful Parcel 12 (even post-value engineering) it's kind of weaksauce.

    MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

    Uh... yeah they did. That was literally the number one demand for the KSI. From these same petition-signers. I doubt they're trying to make a profit - just pay off construction costs - but I agree in principle. The prices MIT sets for Eastgate should be the same ones it carries forward, since...

    Northland Newton | Needham St. @ Oak St. | Newton

    And it's really important for them to do it in this case - the "Yes" campaign doesn't inspire people to lawn signs in quite the same way that "No" does, and Right Size Newton has (shrewdly) refused to participate in any debate or discussion event not held by themselves. There's real danger that...
