Boston is expected to outpace the overall region Assumption 2: Hotel / Extended Stay - Employment Growth - Masterplan “The Seaport Public Realm Plan” (Convention Center)

Site Analysis (Outstanding Attributes) • Cons: • - Poor Geometry • Limited Vehicular Access • - Heavy Traffic Flow (noise and visual pollution) • - Tunnel Exhaust Stacks at neighbor site • Pros: • Substantial Investments in Infrastructure • Strong potential for competition or beneficial development of new neighborhood • Good Public Transportation Linkage (Silver Line to the Airport) • Good linkage to Convention Center, Waterfront and CBD 5 Site Analysis

  11. 6A. Opportunity - Multi-Family Housing >> opportunity to attend particular demand for single, mid-income employees from CBD and Convention Center (employment rate growth) - Hotel / Extended Stay >> opportunity to attend particular demand for conventioneers and business travelers from CBD 6B. Risks • Exceeding Current and Projected Supply for above mentioned uses • Uncertainty about neighborhood development timeline 6C.

However, substantial available land in the market area will require careful product differentiation in order to produce an acceptable capture rate
