Fan Pier Residential Development “It’s all about the View”

John Joseph Moakley Courthouse on Fan Pier Boston

Fallon has built a string of projects that work together to push the South Boston waterfront past its recent pedigree as an urban backwater awash in commuter parking.

Poor Roger Berkowitz, I figured, had eaten so much mercury-tainted swordfish that he had completely lost his mind. I mean, who builds three restaurants with 700 seats under one roof hard by an industrial park in a corner of Boston where precious few people actually live? As I pulled up, something unusual caught my eye — people. Everywhere, people, people walking, people sitting at outdoor cafes, smiling, happy people. Then the nice hostess at Legal glanced at a … [Read more...]
