Seaport Development; Boston's No. 18 Ranking; More!

BostonA huge cargo terminal project
planned for the South Boston waterfront is getting new life
after being shelved for 5 years. Cargo Ventures originally
had a $130 million dollar project on 50,000 square feet of a
3 building complex on 30-acres of city-owned land. The plan included a mix of
seafood processors, cold-storage facilities, warehouse, and a bulk cargo
handling facility. Cargo Ventures lists Millennium Partners
(as in developers of Downtown’s Millennium
Tower) as its primary equity
investor. The BRA board is scheduled to vote on the revised project at today’s
meeting. Stay tuned! [Herald]
