Seems like a good thing for Lynn, and a good TOD plan. Hopefully the fact that GE is moving HQ into the area will be advantageous towards them wanting to talk about making this work. This development and GE going to Eastie should be an opportunity to bring work into River Works, too.
Dunno what to think about the mention of the Blue Line, though, besides that they obviously should at least plan for its build in the future.
[Patsios] said his team recently reached a milestone deal with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) to expand the use of the nearby MBTA River Works Station at the GE plant on Western Avenue. Today, the T only stops at the factory on the Newburyport/Rockport Line for GE employees. But under an agreement in the works with MassDOT, the station would be expanded for all commuters, including the new residents at the Patsios project.
