    North Washington St Bridge

    This bridge sucks. It's like the moakley bridge over the fp channel. Just a concrete lab with some ornamentation on it. Yuck city.

    Hall of Shame Nominees

    Think big. New front door for North Station, facing the river, and a north-of-boston intercity bus terminal, with extensive development of rail air rights and redev of the jail across the street.

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    Fun fact, i've had two different jobs in that building, and another in the building in the background. Great place to work / buildings to work in.

    Northern Avenue Bridge Fort Point Channel

    The approach on the seaport side involves raising the level of northern ave into a ramp starting from about sleeper st. The video shows this with a new set of stairs in front of the courthouse, at about 30 seconds. What it only barely shows is how much the ramp is going to crowd the barking...

    Dorchester Bay City (nee Bayside Expo Ctr.) | Columbia Point

    Exactly. All those orange areas were originally marsh, of course, and then were filled in for RRs etc. Now theyre available for redevelopment. (Should incude the Pru area in that btw). I like that it's an archipelago of mini-cores that's a mirror image of the original archipelago of terra...

    Encore Boston Harbor Casino | 1 Broadway | Everett

    If I'm reading this right, theyre underperforming expectations but not exactly struggling. The thing about a casino is that you have essentially guaranteed profit in the gaming operation. And all the revenue trends cited here are month on month comparisons, not same month year on year (for...

    US2 Redevelopment | Union Square | Somerville

    They should just carve the words"This is not an arch" in roman lettering on the top of it and call it post-modern

    NYC Architecture and Development

    Worst case they should just have to take the estimated cost of removing the floors and donate it to the local garden club or something

    Future Transit Technologies

    Hot take: the transportation tech of the future is bike lanes for electric-assist bikes, and light rail in protected ROWs on surface streets. Like 1910 but with less noise.

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

    Believe whatever you want. But it's not like Boston harbor is the only place where high tide is higher than it used to be. And a 2 foot higher seawall would be the difference between a foot or more of water on seaport boulevard or long wharf and no water on seaport boulevard or long wharf...

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

    Vulvic and phallic at the same time; a blossoming choad

    Crazy Transit Pitches

    Thanks as always. Seems like the focus in that post is portals not stations? What about aquarium and courthouse? The vent box next to the water on the Eastie side of the blue tunnel? The pike portal @fort point? The cat vent at the intercontinental? I get it though, convinced that it's...

    Crazy Transit Pitches

    Thanks for yet another informative post. With this in mind, my crazy transit pitch is to build a harbor barrier to keep a near-future Boston Sandy (whether hurricane or blizzard) from doing to our tunnels (both road and rail) what the actual Sandy did to NYC's

    Reasonable Transit Pitches

    Pro tip; there's a liquor store on the other side of causeway. My friend told me you can put a can of beer into a medium size coffee mug. Can't confirm.
