Interviews start today for the firms vying to study the feasibility and the timeline of a major re-imagining of the vast urban veldt that is Boston City Hall Plaza.
Recall that everything from a soccer field to a hockey rink to restaurants to some kind of man-made lawn has been envisioned for the more than 200,000-square-foot square. The interviews, which are open to the public, are only the beginning. A master plan is due within a year and will cost $500,000. After that, the fun starts—assuming Kitchengate doesn't derail it. Stay tuned.
