As I noted above
, the "they" in question has an absolutely abysmal track record at Faneuil Hall, and, as a result, the worst reputation/credibility gap amongst all major CRE operators in the city. (Seriously, I defy anyone to name another developer/owner in Boston that has as dismal a rep as those guys, based on what's transpired.)
So, no, definitely do not look to the current operator regime for anything remotely positive here--in fact, you should probably pray they exit the scene as quickly and efficiently as possible, given that, realistically, every. single. other. alternative
to them would be preferrable.
