    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    I think there's some common ground in this thread in that we agree it's a beautiful space but that it isn't a real draw for pedestrians yet. You guys were right that even during the work week its still pretty dead. A new restaurant might help a bit. Something a bit less elitist--like a...

    North Washington St Bridge

    It took me 45 minutes to cross this bridge on Saturday. They had a lane closed by Blackmoor during the busiest time of day. And no one works on the bridge itself on the weekend. Charlestown has been a disaster with poorly planned construction work recently. So frustrating. Was hoping the bridge...

    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    The website for the connector shows most shops are open during business hours. Makes sense, but hopefully they expand them in the future.

    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    This was early Saturday morning. It gets much busier during the work week. It's the financial district.

    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    Thanks, it's even better in person. My gf and I were laughing because even the wet floor sign (partially visible in the bottom left of the pic) is gold plated. Seems they spared no expense.

    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    I know there's been some debate but I think this connector is beautiful. So classy. Has a nice variety of shops too.

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

    Looks like the vacant lot is being turned into a tree park. At least for the foreseeable future. Some very modern looking structures (streetlights?) And a turtle.

    10 World Trade | BGI Office Tower (Massport Parcel A2) | Seaport

    It's so close. I was there today. Once the park in front of the new Amazon building is open it's going to be the nicest neighborhood I've ever seen. It probably already is. So many new businesses. Part of me thinks the 300ish foot limit must have made architects get creative because it is unlike...

    South Station Tower | South Station Air Rights | Downtown

    One Post Office Square looks phenomenal in its context. I was just admiring it a few days ago. Very few buildings around One Post Office and South Station are glass, so both really add.

    New England Revolution Stadium | 173 Alford Street | Boston-Everett

    We might just be arguing semantics. Of course the owners will try to get whatever fees from hosting other events they can. But these stadiums are built specifically for the game of soccer, to create more of a European club feel, so I don't think of them as "multi purpose venues" by design.

    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    I think the building looks great from this angle.

    New England Revolution Stadium | 173 Alford Street | Boston-Everett

    How do you explain all the stand-alone soccer-specific stadiums being build in the US? E.g. GEODIS Park.

    State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

    I can see that are still working up to the top finishing the floors, so I'm hoping they'll add some more lighting when that's complete. Probably not. I think the renders had the top lit but obv that means nothing.

    General Boston Discussion

    Anyone think 'smarter' streetlights, and even AI, might help traffic? These changes seem pretty modest. I wonder which city has the most advanced traffic signals.

    State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

    Anyone have any guesses as to whether the top "fin" will ever be lit up?Or maybe some lighting around the cylinder on top? The area looks very different with the garage gone. Can't wait for congress st to open up.

    New Bedford Developments

    Aw I have to say I love this bridge. Not the most efficient, but I'd be sad to see it go.

    South Station Tower | South Station Air Rights | Downtown

    Per the radio, this project is halted pending safety reviews. Hope they get back on track soon.

    New England Revolution Stadium | 173 Alford Street | Boston-Everett

    And how often is the property full of people on warm sunny days?
