Cathy Thompson panelist at Boston Globe’s Talking Points Event

Talking Points Event Series: ‘Beyond Boston: Building in the Outer Urban Ring’


On October 6th, 2016, the Boston Globe and Rockland Trust co-hosted their Talking Points event, ‘Beyond Boston: Building in the Outer Urban Ring.’ This installment was moderated by Jon Chesto of the Boston Globe; Panelists included Larry Curtis of WinnDevelopment, Cathy Thompson of THP, Richard Henderson of MassDevelopment, Ted Tye of National Development and Tim Logan of the Boston Globe.

The discussion centered around the trend of developers and companies seeking to capitalize on the lower costs of building and operating outside of Boston and Cambridge.  This shift could potentially work their favor as many residents are moving into the Suburbs after being priced out of the high Boston housing market. The migration is also aided by the rise of many ‘Work, Live, Play’ developments scattered throughout the Greater Boston area.
