Temporary helistop coming as early as Sept.

One of the potential fruits of General Electric’s deal to move to Boston – a full heliport – could be established in Boston and a state official on Monday said a temporary helistop could be set up as soon as September.

 

The deal between the state, Boston and GE called for coordination between the city and state to facilitate a “new public helipad” in Boston, subject to Federal Aviation Administration approval.

"The champion of this department was Levy Restaurants, an event and catering company associated with Hynes Convention Center. Levy’s cupcakes were basically beyond words. I’ve never tasted a better crafted cupcake in my entire 26 year-cupcake-eating-life."

Editorial: Driven by choices

Beacon Hill is considering legislation that would ban Uber and Lyft from picking up passengers at Logan Airport and the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. But the agency that runs the Seaport convention mecca — to its credit — isn’t waiting to see whether this bit of naked protectionism for taxi companies wins the day.


The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority plans to designate specific pickup spots for passengers who choose to summon a ride on their smartphones, rather than waiting in line at the cab stand.

MCCA director says BCEC must be good neighbor as it expands

The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority will pay MassDOT $21 million to leave a key parcel of land on D Street as it prepares to re-imagine the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center’s future.

 

“Instead of building a building that cuts off and kills a neighborhood, we want to build something that’s integrated in the neighborhood,” said David Gibbons, the author­ity’s executive director. “The testing lab is kind of the linchpin in that, it’s right in the middle.”

 

Although the MCCA will demolish MassDOT’s testing lab later this year, Gibbons said the authority doesn’t have any specific plans for the parcel. The MCCA will include the land as part of a new master plan process aimed at guiding how the BCEC expands in the coming years.
