The BRA granted a Tentative Developer extension for this project tonight. It was noted that Melnea Cass Partners LLC, is actively pursuing funding for this project (Melnea Hotel).

The Parcel 9 hotel project has been green-lit:

http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/201...lrL/story.html

Quote:
The Boston Redevelopment Authority board unanimously approved the project Thursday. The $38 million project promises to transform the barren city lot known as Parcel 9 into a 108-room Marriott Residence Inn, 50 rental apartments, and retail space.

It would add at least 44 permanent jobs and remake the corner of Melnea Cass Boulevard and Washington Street, now dotted with subsidized housing and a field.
It seems the key point was raising the wages from $15 to $18/hr and job training.

We now have a fence up around the site, a site office in place, and a small earth mover digging up turf.

I interviewed at BMC a good while back... didn't go so well but I don't think there would be any way I could have worked there, I would have been too scared.

Now, that area is exactly where they should be building up if Boston was actually serious about housing.

Should go vertical soon. They have also started to trench on the residence site.

Tsk Tsk ... do we never learn that the only people we help by building temporary structures is the initial investor?

Boston, lets be a bit smarter.
