The state is close to selecting a developer to build on one of the last prime parcels along the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway. Two finalists were tabbed to compete for the rights to a triangular sliver of land at Blackstone and Hanover streets. Blackstone Market LLC has proposed building apartments above a food market, while Normandy Real Estate Partners LLC would build a hotel with winter gardens.
Each team will be asked to submit a final proposal by Nov. 16, 2012. The state plans to make a decision soon after.
