The developers of Lovejoy Wharf are getting some city tax breaks to help them proceed with the $230 million project, which includes Converse eventually moving hundreds of employees into the future renovated building.
And, boy, does the building need renovation. The tax breaks are expected to offset some of the costs of rebuilding and extending old wharfs for future public use.
Once completed, Lovejoy will include offices, retail, and about 100 residences, all conveniently near TD Garden, North Station, the North End, Faneuil Hall and Charlestown.
