Just days after the announcement, the BRA participated in Suffolk University's Center for Real Estate Development and the Greater Boston Real Estate Board's public forum, "Downtown Crossing - Back in Business," to discuss the increasing momentum surrounding Downtown Crossing.  Deputy Director of Community Planning, Randi Lathrop, served as a panelist, alongside Roger Berkowitz (President and CEO of Legal Sea Foods), Howard Elkus (Principal at Elkus Manfredi Architects), Rosemarie Sansone (President of the Downtown Boston Business Improvement District-BID), and Mike Telser (Founder and Partner, Retail Concepts). Here are a few facts that were shared at the forum, and ones you'll want to know about Downtown Crossing.
