CommonWealth Magazine’s Bruce Mohl and Fox 25 Undercover issued a special report on perpetual “resale payments” made to the Boston Redevelopment Authority from condo sales at Flagship Wharf and other Boston developments on property once owned by the city.
“I estimate they (the BRA) have made $4.5 million in payments out of this building, and it just keeps accruing over time,” said Mohl, a veteran Boston journalist who is now the editor of CommonWealth Magazine. For the BRA, Flagship Wharf is a gift that keeps giving. Mohl discovered the so-called resale payments while investigating activities at the BRA and found the agency is collecting money every time condo units are sold, not just at Flagship Wharf, but at about 25 buildings in the city.”
