Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

In reference to an earlier post / rumor that the redevelopment of 58 Fore St. was on hold until the Portland Pipeline lawsuit was settled

A Federal judge just ruled against SoPo in the city's motion to dismiss the suit. It looks like this lawsuit will be going on for at least another 2 years according to the PPH article.

Woodcock’s anticipated next step would be to rule on the merits of the company’s claim against the Clear Skies ordinance.

Whatever the outcome in U.S. District Court, the case is expected to wind up in the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston and take another two to three years to reach a conclusion.

“(The company) will not complete the reversal project for at least another three or four years,” Woodcock said. “Three or four years is a lifetime in the oil business.”

So the question is, how will this impact the 58 Fore St. / Portland Foreside redevelopment?
