I dont understand how they could build a supermarket over the mass pike in suburban Newton in the 80's but now it is prohibitively expensive to deck, even in a much more valuable location.
Can there be construction approvals with stipulations attached? In this case, could authorities have mandated that Phase I include Building 1, Building 2, and the highway decking, and then Phase II would include Buildings 3 and 4 and the parking garage? That way any sort of developer leverage from the possibility of air rights development would be eliminated.
