BOSTON MEGAPLEX SITES EXAMINED; BOB KRAFT PLAYS TOUR GUIDE
Published May 11, 1995
The special convention center commission investigating a possible Boston megaplex said yesterday that both Summer Street in South Boston and CrossTown in Lower Roxbury "can be made to work." The commission learned both sites have "environmental, traffic and other pluses and minuses" but nothing has surfaced to disqualify either location (Phil Primack, BOSTON HERALD, 5/11). With recommendations due by the commission on June 1, the the development team "pushing" CrossTown announced that Lehman Brothers had agreed to underwrite their bonds and Cruz Construction Co. and Suffolk Construction Co. have "signed on" as construction partners (Richard Kindleberger, BOSTON GLOBE, 5/10). PATRIOTS GETTING ANTSY? The commission toured Foxboro Stadium with Patriots Owner Robert Kraft and came away with the impression that Kraft may "move the Patriots if no new stadium is built." Kraft described Foxboro as "charming" but "economically obsolete." State Sen. Robert Travaglini: "(Kraft) made it abundantly clear to us that if the present conditions do not change, they leave. I fully believe that and the thought frightens me" (BOSTON HERALD, 5/11). CLEVELAND ON THE CHARLES? The Red Sox are looking at Cleveland's Jacobs Field as a model of how to build/finance a new stadium (Nick Cafardo, BOSTON GLOBE, 5/11).
