    Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

    I still hold that this is going to become seflie fuel and so many inappropriate pictures are going to be taken with it.

    New official renderings for JPMorgan Chase's headquarters at 270 Park Ave just dropped. The tower itself is interesting in shape and how it expresses it's structure, and I'm into how it is raised off the ground like 175 Park, but that ground floor is a disgustingly empty no-man's land...

    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    I am absolutely loving the pleated façade. The fractured reflections of the sky are so interesting. As the glass gets further up we should see some spectacular sunset images with the pleats catching different colors of sky in vertical stripes all the way up the building.

    Blue Line extension to Lynn

    I think this is the right place for this as connecting Wonderland to the commuter rail would reasonably be a first step to extending the blue line, but please feel free to move if I am mistaken...

    Commuter Rail to New Hampshire?

    But doesn't a state have a right to tax goods and services? Isn't the storage of a vehicle or a train ticket a service? If there is a passenger station in Nashua shouldn't the state be able to add a tax in the same way local airports can add a "fee" to airline tickets? In NY you get hit with...

    Commuter Rail to New Hampshire?

    Forgive me for maybe being a bit naive on how passanger rail networks work, but all this scheming between MassDOT, CSX, Nashua etc. Seems to be a recipe for disaser. If they all really do decide to run trains into NH without the NH state government behind it you would suddenly have a bunch of...

    BU Data Sciences Center | 665 Commonwealth Avenue | BU Central

    I understand the façade treatments on all but the lowest level of this building. Is that just the same glass in strips with varying bands inset about a foot? are those inset bands at a slight angle or is it two different types of glass with different reflective properties? Wait, is it actually...

    Union Square D2.1 | 10 Prospect Street | Somerville

    There is some real depth to that facade. Should do some wonderfull things with shadows.

    Riverside Station Developments | Auburndale | Newton

    The architecture is a bit "Anywhere, America" now but I'm still all on for the density and concept of the development.

    Bulfinch Crossing East Parcel | Congress Street | West End

    Then we should be complaining abut the MBTA's late-in-the-game decision against building over it, not claiming the developers pulled a "bait-and-switch."

    Bulfinch Crossing East Parcel | Congress Street | West End

    According to the current plans, a good quarter or so of the building already is designed to be raised on columns. It doesn't seem like a bait and switch to me, it seems like they were working with a different set of givens for the early design, namely that they could build over the tracks and...

    Bulfinch Crossing East Parcel | Congress Street | West End

    Oh woah. I've been following this tangentially never realized just how much space is taken up by the station. The original design is pretty unworkable if they need to avoid the station.
