Falcon -- Boston Ship Repair is considered a "Current Tenant" under the basic concept of "Last Legal Use" -- they are the last entity [outside of possibly some people "unofficially occupying" the site] who paid the city rent on the site. Probably about 15 years ago [circa Gulf War II] or so when they did some ship repairs in the Navy's big Southie drydock*1Funny how they call Boston Ship repair a current tenant. That building has had broken windows and been completely vacant for at least 3 years. Always wondered what would become of it.

Boston Ship Repair
Falcon -- HUH??WTF...Are you talking about!? The building is and has been empty for 5 years. There is NO tenant. The ship yard HAS been occupied for several years. They are not developing the ship yard...they are developing the brick building on the edge of the property.
Did you know that there are active ship operations there? The building has remained empty with a red X on the door for several years.
Falcon -- not to get too too deep into the SeaWeedsYes, the dry dock/repair dock. I assume we are saying the same thing with different terminology! The Navy still sends ships here, I did not mean the Navy itself controls it. Routinely the hospital ships and the Navy cargo ships are in for repairs here. The small building you mentioned is a pump house though? It appears more like a 2-3 story former brick office building. I believe it sat next to 24 Drydock which was torn down several years ago.
