    NYC Architecture and Development

    They keep presenting Cool New Things ™️ all over the city, but once you read far enough down you realize it's just another casino development proposal. https://www.dezeen.com/2024/02/12/big-freedom-plaza-development-east-river-manhattan/

    Laconia, NH

    just heard news that the Bank of New Hampshire is has started construction on a new building in Laconia. They will build this, move their workers over, then tear down the current building. I was curious so looked up the planning board documents from earlier in the year. While the plot of land is...

    Skylines and Developments of the US/World

    They just upped the height with a spire to 1907'. This is all just a marketing ploy right? How can a city with a total of two streetcar lines support a building this size? They will have to raize several acres around it for parking because the transist system is not built for this kind of...

    The Cove | Green Street | Worcester

    I went to a coffee shop in Kelley Square and, say what you will about the economics of the stadium in and of itself, but this area has completely transformed from when I would stumble around the dive bars over here. This building has created a whole new scale for the neighborhood and when it...

    Switch out that ground floor amenity space to retail and plop this on every parking lot on Shrewsbury street.

    You don't need to read the article, just the headline. The newest pencil tower will only have 26 apartments in it. The 6 story walk up across the street from my place has more apartments than this...

    Since they announced this I thought the timber, while cool, is an odd choice for materiality. Everything is steel and concrete on the rest of the high line, why change it for this singular pathway. Even the new approach is steel.

    South Station Tower | South Station Air Rights | Downtown

    The last thing Boston needs is one of the pencil towers from NYC. They are just places for rich people to park their money and do absolutly nothing for the city.

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

    ok curved brick. I'm here for it. I think this building will really come down to what goes into the ground floor retail. With a big grocery store next door what other amenities will the building bring to this rapidly densifying neighborhood?

    Commuter Rail to New Hampshire?

    New IBX study just dropped. https://new.mta.info/document/103686 Light rail has become the preferred alternative. I'm happy they didn't go with the bus concept but I have 3 major worries: 1)This seems to be a completely different system not within the current subway or regional rail fair...

    Wellington Station Air Rights Development | Medford

    While the Davis proposal is probably the least exciting it also seems to be the most reasonable. Gives the MBTA what it wants, doesn't try any engineering tricks, and squeezes in what appears to be three easily constructed buildings for more housing which everywhere needs.

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    If we still did the archboston awards I'd be nominating this picture. Love it!
