The developers behind the mammoth Seaport Square development in South Boston want to speed up the construction of the 1-acre park called the Seaport Square Green. The Herald's Donna Goodison has the details: "The tree-lined public area — a mix of green space and promenades, with plantings and seating — would include the Massachusetts Iraq and Afghanistan Fallen Heroes Memorial, a 50-foot obelisk honoring Bay State servicemen and women killed since Sept. 11, 2001." The park would also include a food pavilion (maybe even a full-service restaurant) and an interactive room to accompany the memorial.
The developers, if the city's game, would start construction on Seaport Square Green in September. Conveniently enough, that's around the same time they would start building Boston's first-ever Yotel hotel. And! The developers recently filed plans for a new four-story commercial building at the site. Stay tuned.
