In Boston alone, 32,640 homes could face the threat of chronic flooding, the study finds, pointing to a group of homes that now constitute more than $80 million of the city's tax revenue.

Over the next 30 years, the study finds 1,100 homes in Revere could face flooding every other week. In Nantucket, a billion dollars worth of homes could be at risk, and across the Massachusetts coast, nearly 14,000 people could be hit by chronic flooding.

Not a harbor barrier, but proposal for $500 million to $1 billion in coastal resiliency efforts along the city's coastline.

Good find!

Slides 3-5 highlight my neighborhood. Interesting, Slides 6-8 show Don Chiofaro's Harbor Garage tower @ ~600'.
