The Boston City Council today approved a request from at-large Councilor Michael Flaherty for a hearing to try to get Massport, the BRA and the city Economic Development and Industrial Corp. on the same page when it comes to re-use of the city-owned land on Boston Harbor.

Flaherty made his request after news broked that Massport has put land out to bid in the Boston Marine Industrial Park in South Boston and that one bid calls for relocating businesses from Widett Circle, including meatpacking plants, even though the industrial park is supposed to be limited to businesses having some relation to the seas.

Blue Hills Bank Pavilion under repair

Earlier today, Matt the roving UHub photographer noticed the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion was in the process of being torn down and wondered why. Turns out it's not going away forever, just that the tent fabric is being replaced in time for performances to start up again in the spring.

Proposed seaport hotel in Boston

The Economic Development and Industrial Corporation this week selected a company to build a 405-room hotel in the Boston Marine Industrial Park.

The proposal, by Harbinger Development, calls for the hotel on a lot off Summer Street that is one of two in the industrial park not required to be used for marine or industrial use.

Harbinger is talking to Hilton Worldwide to operate the hotel, EDIC says.

Firefighters spraying the South Boston snow pile with water

Conventures shows us that the South Boston snow pile got a surprise visit today from Boston firefighters, who set up hoses to dump water on it - whether to reduce its stench or shrink its size, we don't know. But what if, you know, that only made it stronger - and angrier?

Snow in South Boston on May 27

The South Boston snow pile made it through Memorial Day and as Conventures shows us, it's still there today. Will it be there on Flag Day? Dare we suggest July Fourth?

Snow farm on the South Boston waterfront

Several days of running rented snow melters nearly nonstop at the city snow farm in the Marine Industrial Park have helped chop down the snow mountains to size, Conventures reports.

Across the harbor, roving UHub photographer Chris Dagdigian watched a couple of the beasts at work outside Terminal C (the white streaks are reflections of lights in the terminal, not incoming laser beams):
