New, 5 comments

SEAPORT DISTRICT—The sites are pre-approved for a 1.1 million-square-foot complex of residences and retail (rendered): "A partnership involving Asian financiers and a California-based development firm have paid $119.6 million for parcels M1 and M2 in Boston's Seaport ... The sale brings the total purchase price for Seaport Square's master-planned but undeveloped 23 acres to $665.199 million since 2011." [Biz Journal]

"Boston added just shy of 3,300 new homes and apartments in the first nine months of the year, with nearly 10,000 more that have been approved but not yet built." [Globe]
