CROSSTOWN MEGAPLEX BACKERS SAY THEY WILL CAP COST

     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).
