CROSSTOWN MEGAPLEX BACKERS SAY THEY WILL CAP COST
Published August 3, 1995
The group that wants to build Boston's megaplex in the city's Roxbury neighborhood is telling state legislators that it would "cap the cost to the public" at $525M, according to Jerry Ackerman of the BOSTON GLOBE. That figure is below most estimates quoted for the South Boston site, which range from $550M to $850M. Developer Corcoran Jennison, which came up with the figure, said it is based on an architect's estimate derived from the cost of building the Georgia Dome in Atlanta (BOSTON GLOBE, 8/3). Also yesterday, Patriots Owner Robert Kraft said he would play in either South Boston or Roxbury's Crosstown site. Kraft: "We believe both sites have appealing features and would spur economic growth" (Phil Primack, BOSTON HERALD, 8/3).
