Description : Abstract
Marcus Jones reports that a group of minority developers will work with Ray Flynn (Mayor of Boston) and the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) to develop a multi-million dollar complex including office, retail and residential space in downtown Boston. Jones notes that the complex will replace a downtown parking garage. Jones reports that Flynn's "parcel to parcel linkage program" will link downtown development to development in minority neighborhoods. Jones adds that this project will be linked to a parcel of land in Roxbury. Jones' report includes footage of Flynn and the developers at a press conference to announce plans for the development. Bruce Bolling (President, Boston City Council) and Davis Woo (Chinese Investment Group) talk about the need for development in minority neighborhoods. Jones interviews Stephen Coyle (BRA Commissioner) about opportunities for minority involvement in development.
