The plan put forward by Starwood Land Ventures would shift responsibility for public services and property tax revenue to the surrounding communities of Weymouth, Abington and Rockland, while giving Starwood more flexibility regarding the pace of the project …

The $1.5 billion reuse plan calls for up to 8,000 housing units, 19,000 residents, 140,000 square feet of commercial space and 100,000 square feet of office space to be added to the site in the middle of San Francisco Bay …
