More on the New Balance proposal

Seems to me that what New Balance is proposing would do a whole lot more to improve the neighborhood than a big box home improvement store ever could.

Companies vie for Brighton site -


  1. Could it be possible that the city use eminent domain in the case that the owner doesn't want to sell?

    There is no way a lowes can hold any ground what-so-ever against this proposal (even as it has yet to be announced.)

  2. I don't think eminent domain is needed. When Menino tells Carole Brennan that he will not approve a Lowe's, no matter how much they downsize it, then Marathon Realty will sell the land to New Balance.
