New, 2 comments

BOSTON—Both sides should find a ready audience in the city: "[I]s the future of great cities really going to depend upon the development of taller buildings? Or should we return to a more humanly scaled environment where what's important is not quantity but quality, actuality rather than impressions?" [CommonWealth]

A decision is expected by next spring." [Biz Journal]
