Public Market to Open Over Big Dig
The site, Boston's Parcel 7, is an office building with an 26,000 sq. ft. ground floor.
Steve Holt reports:
"The site market organizers chose is in a state-owned building along the Rose Kennedy Greenway, the popular strip of urban parkland that used to be Interstate 93. The infamous "Big Dig," the most expensive public works project in American history, left numerous land parcels, the air rights over several tunnel on-ramps and a few buildings sitting empty along the central artery, many of which were originally promised to nonprofits and cultural institutions. (On the Greenway itself, several developers have backed out of plans to build facilities housing a museum celebrating Boston's history, a center for arts and culture, an indoor arboretum, and a YMCA.)"
