The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court threw doubt on the legal status of multiple building projects when it ruled the NorthPoint complex in Cambridge is not exempt from certain state environmental regulations governing waterways.
The decision reverses a lower court judge who determined that a provision of regulations adopted in 1990 exempted NorthPoint and other projects from state law covering where and how buildings can be developed on and near state harborlands.
The provision was also applied to the 22-acre site on the South Boston waterfront being developed by John B. Hynes II and other land in the Back Bay, some of which has already been built on. Jones Lang LaSalle, development managers of NorthPoint, had no comment.
Oh, I’m sure they had a comment! Something along the lines of, “HFS!”
