In support of the different factions in an area that will be negatively affected by the construction of a tower called Kensington Place, Boston Globe Columnist Steve Bailey writes:"The [Boston Redevelopment Authority] is out of control, Kensington Place providing only the most recent example. It is an organization willing to game the system to get what the mayor wants. It holds endless community meetings but never wavers from its appointed mission. Its 'master plans' are good until the next developer walks in the door. The money, the power, are always on the side of building bigger, not smaller. The opposition, with neither money nor power, can't fight City Hall. What we need is a counterweight to the BRA and what it has come to represent."
