Harbor Point at 10: Where BLT Has Been And It’s Going

The band of volunteers decides what goes up in this fast-growing city, but rarely visits sites as a troupe. So the board packed into a muted-gold minivan on a recent afternoon and toured the now 10-year-old Harbor Point project, taking stock of all they and the city had agreed to — billions of dollars worth of investment, a new taxing district and a sprawling development comprised of some dozen buildings that began construction a decade ago....

Local Commercial Leasing Rebounds

Vacancy rates throughout the area have declined in the past year as a series of deals involving major companies have helped to fill the space.
