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

    That's kind of the weather today, no?

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

    Unless I somehow missed them, I believe the renders on this site are fresh:

    West Cambridge / Alewife Area Infill & Small Developments

    This has been percolating for a while - I don't think I realized it involved so much of an addition.

    Somerville Infill and Small Developments

    Masonry makes everything better.

    Volpe Parcel C1 | 25 Broadway | Kendall Square | Cambridge

    Could be staging or worker parking.

    45 Mystic Ave | Somerville

    This probably won't get built anyway.

    Cambridge Crossing (NorthPoint) | East Cambridge/Charlestown | Cambridge/Boston

    I didn't mean that to denigrate it. Refuge areas are important pedestrian infrastructure. Honestly, I'm not quite seeing the benefit here - the park area isn't even doubled and I don't feel like direct access from that sidewalk is worth very much.

    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    Not to beat a dead horse, but I think "promised" is a strong word here. The contrast is with the vaportechture in MP's initial submission. It had zero chance of ever happening, and any of the other proposals would have been VE'd too. As for a genuine architectural success, the angled window...

    Cambridge Crossing (NorthPoint) | East Cambridge/Charlestown | Cambridge/Boston

    At that site size, is a flatiron marketable? With elevators I'm not sure how much floor space it could possibly have. It could probably only accommodate 1 or maybe 2 units per floor. You say glorified median, others could say "nicer refuge area to wait for the pedestrian signal". Of course, I...

    Cambridge Crossing (NorthPoint) | East Cambridge/Charlestown | Cambridge/Boston

    Whenever you feel that way, just head down to the Financial District, Beacon Hill, Central Square, or any of the other places around Boston that are most definitely "real city" in their vibe.

    The Ipswich | 2 Charlesgate West | Fenway

    This looks fine, especially with the textured facade (that I hope doesn't get VE'd to flatness). Go ahead and build it.

    Fantasy T maps

    Not that I think this requires a change, but as long as I'm nitpicking your Blue Line routing, I wonder why a tunneled route (which this would be) would follow a meandering right-of-way that crosses the river twice and doesn't really hit commercial or population centers? If we're doing fantasy...

    Fantasy T maps

    Maybe call it "Weston", since there are multiple stations in Waltham already (the platforms as proposed would cross the town line like the Green Line would at Route 16)... alternatively, the ancestral station at that location was "Stony Brook", but that might be confusing given the other uses of...

    Assembly Square Infill and Small Developments | Somerville

    I don't hate the tan paint - it makes it look less like a CTS, which I suspect was the point. CTS is downmarket. That said, I get the desire to keep the building cohesive given its history going all the way back to the Ford assembly hall, but we're aspiring to see most of it come down one day...

    Fantasy T maps

    That's the plan. I've seen better images somewhere, but this one does the job. The reconfiguration of the 20/117 Interchange will build a higher-capacity "Green Street Connector between the two roads, and "Jones Road", an access road for the station, would extend north from there. It wouldn't be...

    Fantasy T maps

    The issue with a Brandeis/Roberts park-and-ride is how hard it is to get to from the highway. Up at 20/117 the station/garage would be right off of the main access roads. Brandeis/Roberts is reached via either Waltham Center from the north or the relatively low-traffic River Street from the...

    Fantasy T maps

    It might make your map too busy, but I'd think the Wonderland-Watertown run should be one line, and the Linden-City Point another. If people from Wonderland want to get to Longwood, they can use the Blue Line on this map... Also, why stop the Blue Line at Brandeis/Roberts, rather than going one...

    Assembly Square Infill and Small Developments | Somerville

    The former Christmas Tree Shop has gotten a really rapid redo - I'm regularly at Assembly and it happened between last time and today. It's becoming a Raymour & Flanigan furniture store - the working guys I asked must be from near Providence or Worcester because they said that like I should know...
