    I'd venture to guess it would potentially worsen the situation. The original shutdown a few months ago was because of the sheer impact of the falling structure on top of the century-old tunnel. While intentional wrecking-ball demo would slower and more calculated than the incident, there'd still...

    There was a public meeting 06.15 regarding the vacant Star Market/Wallgreens on Broadway, that (I believe) has been going through public comments and meetings for 2 years now. They've drastically increased the affordability (now 45-55% Market Rate) of the project as a result of public feedback...

    It'd be nice, but you need materials in place and enough labor to multi-task. Not to mention, maintenance requires additional time/focus from dispatchers, and we all know what the dispatchers can afford to do right now..

    Tim Logan is reporting that HYM stated they have discovered "years of water damage" to structural columns. Unclear what columns they are referring to. I would assume it would be related to the garage structure. Edit: WCVB:

    What is this? A railing for ants? (In all seriousness, what is the intended purpose of the 2" "railing?")

    Commonwealth Magazine (link): "Lawmakers plan T safety hearings, call for $400m in extra aid Say FTA concerns, T response ‘don’t inspire any public confidence’" Lot of thoughts, but I'll just leave this one for now: it's very much raining at the T (link).

    Yeah, the FTA's language essentially says they have no other choice but extended shutdowns. A lot of us on here (myself included) were a bit concerned of the new ~2018 rip-the-band-aid-and-throw-money approach leading to a never-ending cycle of shutdowns, which hasn't really stopped since. I...

    These repairs are gonna be quite painful for riders, but at least someone's finally applying pressure to fix them for longer term improvements.. We'll know what the plan/schedule is within 30 days.

    I'm really confused how many are missing Ruari's point here. There are better ways to incorporate a storage building in an urban context than what's proposed. This isn't a binary No-Storage-At-All vs. New-Suburban-Esque-Storage-Facility. I think they've made that clear.

    Metropolitan Storage Warehouse Redevelopment/Renovation (MIT) | 134 Mass. Ave | Cambridge

    I'm fairly certain this version you have here is the more recent design that got approved. It's likely there's no lettering on the RR side.

    ^ The "signature" roof comes in Fall, apparently. While things here have shaped up rather well/quickly for a new headhouse project, we're likely going to be waiting some time for a finished Kendall Square stop...

    The materials, putting a frame around the whole thing, and the rounded edges. In my view it's somewhere between cheap retro and a first year student discovers that the fillet tool makes renders look like the ones on low-effort Instagram pages, while the rest of the project has a much more...

    I'm loving how it's turning out, except for the little gate pop-outs. Those things will be screaming the age of the building in no time.
