    Middlesex County Courthouse Redevelopment | 40 Thorndike St | East Cambridge

    I wonder if the Owners will have a Shaman perform a ceremony to rid the site of ghosts and bad juju of prisoners past.

    Allston-Brighton Infill and Small Developments

    249 Corey Rd. The original renderings had darker, brownish panels. These gray color panels are a bad color choice for a gray day in New England. I hope the single family homes on the Brookline side of the property have a different architect/designer than this building..

    "Dirty Old Boston"

    Cheaper air travel and the rise of the travel industry when the "Middle Class Family" had a little extra money for trips. Why go to these cold water beaches when the are the beaches in Miami, the Caribbian, California, Mexico and Hawaii?

    Boynton Gateway | 495 Columbia Street | Somerville

    The moment connection load of the projecting awning beam got nullified by the beam on the inside running along the ceiling line in the opposite direction.
