Boston #1

The city of Boston has been honored as part of the Lee Kuan World City Prize. It was the only U.S. city recognized in the 2020 awards cycle. 

Beantown received a special mention in the awards for its “holistic work on climate resilience, improving housing affordability and mobility options, and fostering civic participation.”

The Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize is a biennial international award honoring outstanding achievements and contributions to the creation of livable, vibrant and sustainable urban communities around the world. 

The committee noted Boston’s climate resilience foresight, urging other waterfront metros to take a similar proactive approach to climate change. It also called Boston a “visionary city where close partnership and trust is delivering significant results.”

Several projects and planning efforts were highlighted in the announcement, including Imagine Boston 2030, the city’s Climate Ready Boston initiative, the city’s Resilient Boston Harbor vision, the redevelopment of the Bruce C. Bolling Municipal Building in Nubian Square and the creation of the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway

“We are honored that the Lee Kuan Yew Prize Committee has selected Boston for this prestigious ranking, based on important work the BPDA has led on waterfront resiliency, housing affordability, mobility solutions and civic engagement,” said BPDA Director Brian Golden. “These are the priorities we focus on every day to build a better future for all Boston residents, and it is a privilege to be acknowledged alongside other innovative global cities. As the only U.S. city to receive this international recognition, we are immensely proud that Boston is being held up as a model for the world.”

The Boston Foundation came out with a report a week ago saying Boston could go in four directions, in the future. It could become a “regional city”, focused on providing jobs for its suburbs; it could become a “tourist city”, focused on visitors to the city; it could become a “middle class city”, where job opportunities for residents and quality of life would be most important; or, it could become a “global city”, focused on providing goods and services for the global economy (the world is flat, after all).

Sounds like we’re well on our way to achieve city #4:

Starting a new business these days requires more than just cheap labor and low taxes. The new standard is global linkage, highly skilled workers, and IT infrastructure, says Rob Atkinson, author of a new study on entrepreneurs and president of Information Technology and Innovation Foundation.

The study lists the top 10 states for businesses offering new kinds of products and services. They are in order, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Maryland, Washington, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Virginia, Colorado, and New York.

States in the bottom 10 that are not adapting well to the new economy, in reverse order, are: West Virginia, Mississippi, South Dakota, Arkansas, Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Wyoming, Montana, and Hawaii.
