    Union Square Somerville Infill and Small Developments

    They know how to get stuff past the Planning Board. That counts for a lot when you're trying to develop efficiently.

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    They'll be turned loose regardless. The question is whether the MBTA hires them.

    Union Square Somerville Infill and Small Developments

    5 stories of backstreet housing at 3 Hawkins: https://s3.amazonaws.com/ifa.somervillema.gov/documents/planning/Hawkins%203%20-%20Revised%20Submittal%202021%2004%2008-.pdf

    Take Back The Streets (...and alleys)

    Maybe they could raise it and blend it into the plaza? Bus traffic might be heavy enough that it wouldn't typically be empty, though.

    The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

    Borders is gone and B&N is perpetually hanging by a thread (mostly by selling an eReader). I don't think that example proves the point...

    The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

    Actually, I thought Arclight of all cinemas would survive because they could make a living on midnight screenings, classic films, and some lingering demand for nostalgic cinema experiences. The writing's on the wall for this whole industry, though. By 2023 no major release will be through...

    The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

    Much likelier that it's been retrofit as research space in 4-5 years.

    Because they're cheapskates.

    New Red and Orange Line Cars

    I've never seen the press ask questions at an FMCB meeting in the public portion, although I think they may get an availability beforehand. That's not how I read Gonneville's comment, though. I think he meant "not even as a contributing element have we identified a problem with the cars, much...

    Regional Rail (RUR) & North-South Rail Link (NSRL)

    Well, in this case it's more a way to start service where they have the electrification already with borrowed vehicles. The rest of the presentation doesn't sleep on the Fairmount and Lynn lines.

    Regional Rail (RUR) & North-South Rail Link (NSRL)

    Slides for the FMCB today (technically these won't be presented for a few hours, but they've been posted): https://cdn.mbta.com/sites/default/files/2021-04/2021-04-12-fmcb-J-regional-rail-update.pdf Providence EMU pilot targeted for service in Q2 2024.

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

    Saved from notoriety by the even worse building next door.

    The Quinn (née The Berkeley) | 370-380 Harrison Ave | South End

    Like Lovejoy Wharf, this project is a testament to the power of quality materials. Your close-up of the brickwork is genuinely pretty. Put these bricks and glass on Kenmore North and we aren't bashing it (...as much - it still replaced what it replaced). Simple as that.

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    Now they need to fix the Blue Line so that RBX, famed as the shortest, straightest subway connection yet to build, doesn't map as an elbow.

    General Google Mapping Tips & Fun

    FYI, Google Earth Pro now has imagery for Boston from 10/17/20, but you have to use the historic view and pull it all the way forward.

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    Yeah, it's reasonable to suppose that more people would be trying to get from Somerville to Longwood vs. Kenmore.

    Waltham Infill and Small Developments

    While we've all been hiding, MassDOT/BXP completed the northern end of the interchange work in Waltham: https://www.mass.gov/news/massdot-boston-properties-highlight-new-operational-and-safety-improvements-at-route-128interstate-95-interchange-ramp-and-roadways-in-waltham

    Union Square D2.1 | 10 Prospect Street | Somerville

    On the GLX Union Square webcam fencing has gone up to separate the station site from the development site, and some site prep seems to be starting. https://share.earthcam.net/GreenLineExt/green_line_extension/glx-unionsq-cc4k/panorama_-_regular

    200 Boston Ave | Medford Hillside - Tufts | Medford

    I see now that I look at the streetview - this project is really at 196 Boston Ave and effectively copies the building behind. I'd honestly hope for a little denser there, too, with better street level interaction with the primary Green Line station approach. There;s the potential for a little...
