Developer: Deal “Imminent” For South Weymouth Naval Air Station

By Anthony Silva, WBZ NewsRadio 1030

SOUTH WEYMOUTH (CBS) – After 13 years of negotiations, a deal could soon be announced for the sale of the South Weymouth Naval Air Station.

The navy has already sold part of the base, but another 835-acre tract may be sold for 25 million dollars.

Kevin Donovan of the Tri-Town Development Corporation says a deal in “imminent.” Donovan tells me work has already begun on single-family housing, with other plans including an apartment complex, a nursing home, commercial space and new roads.

Together with 530 acres already transferred by the navy, the site could eventually create hundreds of homes, thousands of jobs, and millions in new tax revenue.

    seeing is truely believing… when things start to happen then the folks around the base will finally believe it, till then this is all just fluff talk..

    Just what Massachusetts needed. Another poorly built upscale development. These type of deals are very annoying and angering to me.

    Beware the Section 8 units that are planned. Baby mommas and thier living-there-illegally ex-con drug dealer boyfriends will be moving in.

    Who said anything about section 8 housing , affordable housing does not mean that, besides they have been playing games with this base for over 10 years, enough is enough Build homes, and jobs. Is that what we want. or do you want your taxes to continue to pay for a empty peice of land that boarders 3 towns, sit and rot further and become more of an eye sore…. I rather it become a usefull peice of property, I rather homes some business we can go to maybe a few resturants rather than all office buildings that will only be vacant for the next 20 years and waste even more of our tax dollars paying for their up keep… look around the towns how many empty office buildings and parks do you see, to many, we need homes and viable business not empty store fronts that waste tax dollars
