Struggling newspapers across U.S. are selling off their HQ sites

The Boston Herald isn’t alone in selling off its old print and newsroom facilities and moving into leased spaces elsewhere, as the newspaper industry continues it long decline.

Now a commercial real estate recovery?

Comparing residential and commercial real estate to each other is like the proverbial apples-to-oranges comparison: They’re not quite the same. But there are similarities between the two that reflect overall market conditions, just as both apples and oranges require water and sunshine to grow. So it’s encouraging to see that the planned sale of the [...]



From charter school to office building

The Bay Villiage Neighborhood Association appears to support transforming 100 Arlington Street from a charter school into an office tower. The choice was never about housing. It was going to be either a hotel or offices.



Boston Commercial Real Estate

Sales of Boston-area commercial properties plummeted 86.5 percent last year, with about $1.35 billion in property changing hands compared to $10 billion in a red-hot 2007, according to the global real estate firm Jones Lang LaSalle.
