Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Re: KBTV - Burlington Int'l Airport

I like it!

All we need to do is wait for metro Burlington to quadruple in population and maybe this will become reality :p

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

I guess it depends on how they define "on peninsula" I can't think of a single site on what we would think of as "the peninsula" that would be suitable for a distribution center of any size...and I...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

I can see the flight to Denver doing very well. There's lots of demand for that route. Raleigh-Durham seems like an odd choice but it's good to see some solid growth at the jetport. Whats worth...

Re: Portland Bayside

I'm starting to think that Federated never actually INTENDED to build anything....They've stalled and delayed for 3 years now over petty bickering with the city.
