    🔷 Open Thread Unless BI seriously ups their game this sounds potentially horrid for DFCI and for those who depend on them.

    Maybe when his ad revenue hits rock bottom he’ll address this. Otherwise I can’t imagine he gives a damn about the user experience.

    Logan Airport Capital Projects

    Oh I know. It also probably would’ve cost a few hundred million more to build but imho it was a better concept and a more appealing aesthetic. It wouldn’t have looked like every other airport in the world inside.

    Logan Airport Capital Projects

    Meh. Looks as cold and sterile as every other airport. I still think what KPF came up with would have been a better option.

    Name this US city and related urban trivia!

    Huntington, WV. The gold-domed courthouse made this somewhat easy.

    "Dirty Old Boston"

    Security concerns, upfront investment in building out the space and also partitioning off a visitor-specific lobby and elevators(assuming two required by code), annual operating costs plus the risk of upsetting existing business tenants by reducing the quality of their experience.

    Raffles Boston (40 Trinity Place) | 426 Stuart Street | Back Bay

    Looks like the highest priced unit so far(29C - $8.066m) has gone to an LLC associated with David Desmond, a nephew of Donald Trump and son of his sister Maryanne.

    I’ll take epic design fails for a thousand.

    What a waste of a liquor license.

    RI economy touted at giant warehouse ground breaking

    We don’t need a whole thread for a month-old story about the construction of a warehouse and some remarks from a state official.

    Harriet Tubman House | 566 Columbus Avenue | South End

    First closing was Tuesday. $1.675m for a 1370 square foot two bedroom with one deeded parking space so this is looking like a much more accessible price point than a lot of the other new construction in recent years.

    Covering costs is one thing and there are better and less intrusive ways to do that but the ads are nothing but monetization for the sake of monetization and at this point it’s obvious that the user experience is secondary. Everyone has to make a living somehow but the viability of someone...

    The St Regis Residences (former Whiskey Priest site) | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

    The marble work is great but the signage is [not surprisingly] tacky. The St. Regis logo alone would have been far more elegant.

    It’s probably also about maintaining year round first class service.

    Looks cold and sterile, as if the design brief called for an airport lounge furnished by Ikea.

    Golf Course Redevelopment

    Let the market sort that out. Maybe some day a club will fail and present an opportunity for another use but I wouldn’t count on it happening any time soon. The public and muni courses are playing close to capacity most of the season and virtually all of the private clubs have full memberships...

    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    Or even restaurants that do cost an arm and a leg but are worth paying for. Boston’s dining scene is an embarrassment. Last time I checked Charleston had more four and five star restaurants than Boston.

    Hull infill and small developments

    Hull(and Hingham since that came up above) are universally regarded as Boston suburbs. They both have MBTA bus and commuter boat service and are only five or so miles from Boston as the crow flies. I can’t imagine anyone in the real world would argue they aren’t part of Greater Boston. I think...
