    BPDA Austin Street Parking Lot Development | Charlestown

    From an urban perspective, I am liking the DREAM-Onyx proposal better. The Trinity Financial one is more straightforward, but the amount of surface space for cars cutting through the site, especially on the east end of the parcel, bugs me. Also the fact that Trinity has one more curb cut on to...

    Quincy General Developments

    Not sure why Quincy would do this without any activation around it. I would think a developer could do something like this. The blue area could be a garage (go below grade and above grade), the red outline could be ground floor activated commercial (IHOP, Urgent Care could be possible tenants?)...

    Wentworth Mixed-Use Life Sciences Complex | 500 Huntington Ave | Fenway

    As a WIT grad (Class '11), I can attest that WIT is doing lots of good things. As a native New Englander living in the south, watching WIT's progress from afar is really encouraging. I really hope they are maintaining all the land ownership because that land is sooooo freaking valuable as we...

    Park 151 | 151 N First Street | Cambridge Crossing | East Cambridge

    Really like the emphasis paid to the bike parking. Would've hoped to have more than one fix-it stand or bike wash, but baby steps.

    Marine Wharf (Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites) | 660 Summer St | Seaport

    My bad, I shouldn't have used that reference. I really just wanted to give the impression of a blank wall, and I know how the aB forum has expressed their love for that wall over time. My original point was to say that you don't always need fire rated curtain wall, as long as there is a...

    Marine Wharf (Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites) | 660 Summer St | Seaport

    I agree entirely! I worked on the new Johnson and Wales building and we ended up using rated curtain wall in A LOT of places. The stairs came out awesome! If i remember correctly though, technically you only need curtain rated glass if it is within 15'-0" of another glazing system (curtain...

    The new building portion of this project has sprouted. It’s been climbing out of the ground fairly quickly now that they’ve started vertical.

    Millennium Tower (Filene's) -Discussion and Photo Thread

    Re: Millennium Tower (Filene's) | 426 Washington Street | Downtown Not that I am a fan of the shadow laws, but if I understand them correctly, all the buildings casting shadow in this image are within the Midtown Cultural District and are therefore exempt from the shadow laws. Can anyone...

    128 Widening

    So I lived in Pawtucket for a few years and would drive this route alot. They just recently (within the last year) finished the new I-295 interchange, and now I believe they are replacing the north and south bridges just north of the interchange. They did a similar project up in Boxboro for the...

    🔹 What's Happening With Project X?

    ^^^ I have the mouth of a sailor on most days, but even i know by using the language that you are using pretty much invalidates any and all points you make, no matter the validity of them. You can do better.

    Pier 4 Office Building | 140 Northern Ave | Seaport

    Re: Pier 4 Office Tower | 140 Northern Ave | Seaport As always, thanks for the pics BeeLine! I will hold my final judgement till the entire pier is done, but as this has been glazed more and more, the more disappointed I am. I understand that it is sandwiched between several buildings and they...

    Quincy Center Redevelopment

    Being that it is being brought by the city council, why would this have to go through the state government? (Sorry for the lack of understanding the politics of it all) I think this would be an amazing thing. Granted there will be opposition in terms of people saying the builders will pass this...

    Mixed-Use Washington @ Walnut | Newtonville

    That was pretty impressive! My girlfriend lived over on Galen Street for two years, but we would use Washington Street to go down to Cabots sometimes and on days where i hated the pike and needed to get to Rt. 16. Overall I love this scheme and would love to see something like this happen. One...
