COMMISSION APPROVES A "TAJ MAHAL" OF SPORTS IN BEANTOWN
Published April 20, 1995
The 13-member MA Convention Center Commission unanimously voted yesterday to build a downtown Boston convention-sports complex that could include stadiums for the Patriots and the Red Sox and cost as much as $1B. Now the "real challenge" is in forming a financial plan that "brings in the private investment interest that everyone agrees is crucial and win legislative approval." The commission also eliminated two sites, leaving three sites in the running (Richard Kindleberger, BOSTON GLOBE, 4/20). According to records filed with the MA Secretary of State, Patriots owner Robert Kraft's Foxboro Stadium Associates has paid $8,500 to the lobbying firm of Joyce and Joyce during the megaplex debate. New Boston Garden Corp. paid $19,500 to lobbyist William Coyne in '94 and '95 to "monitor megaplex issues" (Phil Primack, BOSTON HERALD, 4/20).
