One of the biggest construction projects going on near us has been the demolition of the old Polaroid plant on 128. It’s an enormous project. They plan to replace the plant with more than a million square feet of office and retail space.
One of my companies was just up the hill from the site, and I still go by it several times a week. It has been kind of fascinating to watch their progress. It is pretty complex because there are major high tension power lines running through the site, and those are being moved. Lately they’ve been blasting several small hills of the site.
Sometimes it can be hard to guess exactly what’s going on, but I just discovered that they have a blog! They don’t seem to update it too often, but it is still nice to be able to get some insight into what all that activity is.
