Federal officials blocked Menino's earlier plans for a hotel on the plaza, for fear that criminals and spies would book rooms there to eavesdrop on the FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration's Boston offices. Officials at the US General Services Administration, which manages the John F. Kennedy Federal Building complex on the northwest side of the plaza, could not be reached late yesterday. The high-rise of the Kennedy complex is 387 feet high.

The Boston FBI office is a joke; I'm sure they were worried about Whitey Bulger being the first to book a room in the new hotel! Thankfully, they're looking for space outside of the JFK building which might allow the city to redevelop the plaza.
