The battle over Boston’s ‘Parcel 9′

The state is thinking of putting out to the highest bidder a piece of public land abutting the Rose Kennedy Greenway near Haymarket, otherwise known as Parcel 9. Some people rightly aren’t happy.

Now for the rest of the story…

A week ago, the local news reported on $52,000 per month rental at the Mandarin. Well today, I looked up the penthouse listing and I found out that it was withdrawn after four days on the market. What’s up with that? On another note, two of the Bryant auction condos are now listed for rent. [...]
