So, politics aside should the city sell city hall for redevelopment? Personally I am in favor of this and not simply based on economics. The standards that are available in the construction industry far surpass available options of ‘67, how we use space has evolved, and we have learned to do more with less.
The mayoral race seems to still be very crowded, but this got my attention.
The Boston Business Journal reported, “State Rep. Martin Walsh, a candidate for Boston mayor, wants to sell Boston’s City Hall to a private developer – who would presumably bulldoze the much-maligned structure and its underused, adjacent plaza in favor of hotels, apartments and retail development.”
Walsh spoke with the Boston Herald and noted, “You could put a hotel boutique here. You could put a full hotel here. You could have an office building. You could put so much in this area…we could have shops … that would fit in with Faneuil Hall Marketplace.”
