WATERFRONT—The developer called the study "ambush diplomacy": "The New England Aquarium has stepped up its opposition to developer Don Chiofaro's plan to put a massive development at the neighboring Boston Harbor Garage site, issuing a study Wednesday that said the project would choke traffic along Atlantic Avenue and gobble up parking spaces that are essential to the aquarium and other waterfront businesses."

SOUTH BOSTON—Those various big-time development plans near the convention center include a lot of parking spaces, apparently: "Massport is also designing an above-ground parking garage on a parcel adjacent to the World Trade Center Commuter Rail and Silver Line MBTA station that will include up to 1,500 parking spaces and is scheduled to be completed in 2019."
