    Why is this even a question?

    Let's see - chronic shortage of hotel rooms vs. massive oversupply of luxury apartments in the pipeline?

    Maybe for appearance's sake they had to make it a horse race?

    Too small

    Both options are tiny buildings. We should have something at least 10-20 stores there

    Don't see a hotel here - it

    Don't see a hotel here - it would have to be small, and the Millenium is right there already. As for the market proposal, it sounds like our version of Pike's Market in Seattle - and that would be a good thing. But where does that leave the proposed Public Market in the MassDOT vent building/garage across the street? Is that still on? the website says 'opening as soon as 2012'.

    Yes, that proposal is still on. This market would be related more to the pushcart vendors of the Haymarket. Both projects are part of branding that area as a "market district."
