You can’t blame us for being jaded regarding the North End. After all, this redevelopment plan has been in the cards for years. You may recall that the original NERP has been on hold because of what? WAVE, the elusive redevelopment group who has never produced a set of construction plans or a redevelopers agreement, supposedly has been working on financing.
Meanwhile, several years ago, WAVE tried to announce a new plan supported by Randy Bishop and the OGHOA, but that plan never was approved, and so we still are dealing with the original concept that would offer 165 new residential units at the North End, a hotel, and an underground parking garage.
Yesterday we heard from a citizen reporter who noticed some “digging” going on at the North End.
He took a photo (above) and said, “They had been digging this morning. They dig about 3 feet deep then take measurements of the hole and soil samples. Think they could be perk tests? What do your followers think?”
