In the Aug. 2 issue, we praised the Boston Redevelopment Authority board of directors for its smart “chess move” of linking the redevelopment of Hyde Square’s former Norbert School building to a successful sale of the former Blessed Sacrament Church. That information was incorrect. In fact, the BRA board linked the school project to the removal of a use-related deed restriction on the church.
Removing the restriction is still key to making the sale happen, which is the clear basic intent. We repeat that it was a smart chess move by the BRA board—just with a slightly different game piece.
