DEVELOPER PUSHES NEW BOSTON STADIUM PLANS
Published October 7, 1994
Boston developer Joe Corcoran is pushing his $800M plan for a convention center, baseball park, and football stadium in an area called Crosstown. The Red Sox and Corcoran's group have been talking "behind the scenes" for months. Red Sox CEO John Harrington: "We want a new ballpark and when these labor problems are over in baseball, we will focus a lot more attention on that." Corcoran's idea is to have the Sox "develop their own stadium with their own investors." The Boston Redevelopment Authority was to begin talks this week on a convention center and sites for the teams (Will McDonough, BOSTON GLOBE, 10/6).
