More specifically, GE is meant to house 800 employees in this facility. They are most interested in supporting IOT and healthcare devices, both of which will almost certainly remain under control of the core GE.

If GE fails to deliver on the 800 employees, it would be appropriate for the Commonwealth and City to revisit their incentive package. As long as the 800 employees are there in 2025, it doesn't really matter what form the company takes by then.

What the GE investigation could mean for the companyís future

http://www.bostonglobe.com/business/...4KO/story.html

By Jon Chesto GLOBE STAFF JANUARY 24, 2018

Another General Electric Co. call with analysts, another dose of bad news. This time, itís a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation thatís adding to GE chief executive John Flanneryís headaches.

Last week, Flannery disclosed that the Boston company would take a surprise $6.2 billion write-off and set aside $15 billion over seven years to prop up its portfolio of reinsurance policies.

Flannery also reiterated that all options are on the table in terms of the massive restructuring he has underway, words that were interpreted by many to mean that he is open to breaking up the company.....

What will be built first? Columbus Center or the GE HQ?

I am 100% convinced that the glass building will never get built now, but if they rehab the brick buildings to the condition of the render... that wouldn't be so bad. Not sure what they would do with the parking lot then.

you're 100% convinced of that? GE remains one of the 10 largest companies in America and is a global force.

Is that a bad render (the canvas from the site hanging on the fence), or are they re-cladding the side with faux-brick?

GE---is in a big trouble. I say they file bankruptcy and liquidate to avoid paying all those bloated pensions.

It was a hell of a run.

They have also raised the Harborwalk (3 or 4 feet) at a point that flooded this past winter.
