There are some successes in the Seaport -- the ICA, MetLife, the Harborwalk extension, and the new mixed use waterfront development looks promising. So, while the planning piece is unfortunate, it is not all bad. If you don't believe me, just head out there on a nice day and read a book on the ICA deck. It's a success.The entire "Seaport" should have been on that list. Maybe it was planned prior to the last decade. Ehh, I guess that's more about urban planning than architecture.
I personally don't have too big of a problem with it, but some don't like it because they consider it less urban than the old elevated highway and that it shows the political favoritism for auto transportation over other modes.What's wrong with the big dig? They'll be able to build on the RKG in the next 100 years.
Please explain or if you already did on another thread can I have the link?It's the ultimate proof and symbol of Boston's suburbanization.
The RKG isn't a park, its a parking lot filled with grass; this is way different than the emerald necklace.How many hundred year old parks in Boston do you know that have gotten developed recently?
1. At best its at the fringe of the Seaport. It's surrounded by industrial-zoned land on three sides.terrible for the development of the Seaport.
