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

That is a nice catch! They actually reported that leasing went from 33% to 42% probably between q4 2016 and q1 2017 so that people would think there's more progress and they have momentum...sneaky

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

I think it is Phase 1 so Super Market, Movie Theater, probably some other restaurants and such. There's also I think a couple hundred thousand sf of 'creative' office space which I've heard nothing...

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

Re: ACKS | Alexander Center Kendall Sq. | 50 Binney | E Cambridge

Isn't this about 50/50 Genzym and Blue Bird Bio? Not sure about retail tenants which may be what you are asking about.

Re: 111 Federal St. | Formerly Trans National Place (Winthrop Square) Part 2

Re: Winter Garden | 100 Federal St. | Financial District

Re: MXD | 145 Broadway/250 Binney | Kendall Square

That would make a lot of sense. They took a hard look at BP's Causeway Project, a build to suit in Kendall with the same developer might have been the counter proposal after they said publicly they...

Re: 30 Dalton St. Residences | Back Bay

Re: Millennium Tower (Filene's) | 426 Washington Street | Downtown
