Interested Bystanders: The Real Estate Profession and Behemoth Public Works Projects

Spring/Summer 1991, Vol 16, No 1

Abstract: Despite a $4.97 million artery-tunnel construction project and a $7.0 billion harbor cleanup effort, the private sector real estate industry in Boston finds itself on the outside looking in. This commentary describes the problems this city is facing and sketches a modest role for the American Society of Real Estate Counselors as a facilitator in public-private sector dialogue in Boston and elsewhere.
