After months of negotiations, an agreement between Harbor Garage owner, Chiofaro Company, the New England Aquarium and the City of Boston was released on Friday. The deal comes after city officials consulted with State regulators on the draft Downtown Waterfront Municipal Harbor Plan (MHP) submitted last March. In the latest supplement to the MHP (pdf), the Boston Planning and Redevelopment Agency (BPDA) detailed terms between the three parties that will allow for a tower up to 600 feet (900,000 square feet capacity) at the water’s edge while securing permanent parking for the Aquarium and indemnifying it from losses during construction.Harbor Garage Site Example (MHP)The Harbor Garage site is proposed to be developed with a tower up to 600 feet by the developer, Chiofaro Company (NEWF Image)The MHP supplement also revises plans for a new park at the Chart House parking lot at Long Wharf and removes over-the-water Harborwalk requirements at the Hook Lobster site where a new 305 foot building is envisioned.At the Aquarium site, $10 million will come from the Harbor Garage developer toward the Blueway plan at Central Wharf. The demolition of the IMAX theater is expected to add toward the open space configuration between the Harbor Garage site and the Aquarium, but some limits were imposed to spread out the open space around the entire tower. City officials lauded the agreement in letter to Secretary Matthew Beacon of the State’s Executive Office of Energy & Environmental Affairs.*Advertisement* “The MHP will provide substantial baseline public benefits, with the redevelopment of the Garbor Garage site removing a relic from the days of the elevated I-93 Artery and opening 50 percent of the site for new public open spaces and improved views from the Greenway.” Brian P. Golden, Director, Boston Planning and Development Agency.A key change in the MHP supplement is that the Harbor Garage developer has agreed to indemnify the Aquarium during and an expected three year construction period for loss of business up to $30 million ($10 million outright and $20 million via a loan). The indemnification covers a loss of revenue if Aquarium visitors fall below the current 1.37 million.Permanent requirements were imposed on the Harbor Garage developer to provide Aquarium parking (250 spaces weekdays, 500 nights and weekends) during construction and thereafter once the new tower is complete. The deal between the Aquarium and the Harbor Garage is currently a preliminary framework with 60 days to strike a final agreement or head to arbitration.Specific changes to the Harbor Garage offsets as mitigation for a 600 foot tower plan (vs. 150 feet current zoning):–$10 million will go toward the Aquarium’s Blueway plan (up from $5 million in the original MHP).–$300,000 to the BPDA for waterfront design and use standards.–Removal of a $5 million requirement toward the new park at the BRA owned parking lot at the Chart House on Long Wharf. These funds are now expected to come from the development at the Hook Lobster site.Specific changes to the Harbor Garage Open Space Guidance should the developer acquire abutting property (including as the IMAX theater):–The 50% open space requirement should be applied with 30% maximum on the north side by Milk Street (see diagram on last page at the end of this post). Locate open space as close to the water, with views toward the Greenway and a setback from the harbor encouraging year-round public use.–New open spaces should discourage preferential access by private users.–Any new structures on acquired abutting property (i.e., the IMAX theater) are restricted to 55 feet in height.While still allowing acquired property to be part of a larger site plan, these changes appear to partially address concerns regarding using a demolished IMAX theater to largely satisfy the 50% open space requirement.Chart House parking lot often floods at high tide. The site is set to be a new park with mitigation funds from development at the Hook Lobster site (NEWF Image)The Hook Wharf development offsets were also modified in the supplement refocusing $4 million in mitigation toward a new park at the Chart House parking lot. Notably, all requirements were removed toward an over-the-water Harborwalk on the Fort Point Channel. A building at Hook Wharf is allowed up to 305 feet, although any proposal appears significantly further behind that of the Harbor Garage in timing.–Hook Lobster proponent will provide $4 million in funding toward design and construction of a waterfront park at the BRA-owned Chart House parking lot.–Removed requirement to create a ground floor public facility for waterfront uses at the Hook Wharf site.–Removed requirement to expand a public deck connecting the Moakley Bridge pedestrian connection.–Removed requirement for $1.5 million toward an over-the-water Harborwalk connection between the Hook site and 470/500 Atlantic Ave.From here, the MHP remains under State review that is expected to take several more months and include a public comment period. The Downtown Waterfront MHP covers the area from Long Wharf, northward along Boston Harbor to the Moakley Bridge. The three major development sites include the Harbor Garage (owned by Chiofaro Company and Prudential), the Hook Lobster parcel and Long Wharf. A design for the $1.3 billion tower at the Harbor Garage site is still in the preliminary stages by the Chiofaro Company. Another wildcard would be the reaction of abutters opposed to the plan, especially at Harbor Towers, where many residents continue to threaten a lawsuit aimed at deficiencies in the prolonged and convoluted MHP process.

FFWPU Australia, January 7-18, 2015, Kuringai: The 2015 Oceania 2nd Generation Summer Workshop was held on January 7–18 at Kuringai Scout camp with around 60 Staff and participants attending from Australia, New Zealand and America. We were lucky enough to have special guests Uncle Jeff Adshed and Josh Schanker from Next Gen Academy to help staff this workshop.These workshops are the highlight of every 2nd gen’s year. This year was one of the most memorable workshops yet. With the theme ‘Discover the Magic’ we had presentations that were about self-belief, truth, love, service, pursuing our passion, letting go of self-limitations, forgiveness, life vitality and spirit. We learnt about breaking down the barriers, whether they may be externally or internally, that stop us from achieving what we want to in life and how important family is and ultimately learning that family is the school of love.During this workshop we learnt as a community how important we all are to one another and that we can really support and love as one big family under God. This workshop has had such an impact on all of us and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of this memorable and everlasting experience.A big thank you to Frances and all of the Organizers for putting so much work and effort into making this workshop possible. Also a big thank you to Uncle Jeff who has really inspired so many of us!

Top Contenders for Fight of the Year Latest From Our Partners King Ryan Longsleeve Shirt Standard Ranked Rashguard Brock Lesnar’s WWE Future After UFC Retirement Video: Aalon Cruz scores ridiculous jumping knee KO on Contender Series Nightmare Matchup for UFC’s Biggest Stars Should Frankie Edgar finally fight at bantamweight? Coach Ricardo Almeida weighs in Timeline of Israel Adesanya’s Rapid Rise to UFC Contender ProMax 440 BJJ GI Gloves More: Esther Lin photo Latest From MMA Warehouse Gordon Ryan Competition Kit It’s another slow-ish August weekend, but at least we’ve had enough major fight announcements over the past couple weeks to keep people talking for quite some time.So we’ll talk mostly about the big end-of-year schedule in all its permutations, in addition to the usual hodgepodge of topics, in the latest edition of Fightweets.Which fights are best?@MorganWaltzUFC: With all the awesome fights @UFC has announced recently. Which 2 are you most excited for and why?Frankie Edgar vs. Chad Mendes and Junior dos Santos vs. Alistair Overeem.I’m going to tackle the latter, first. I’m not sure why, exactly, this UFC on FOX 17 fight caught my attention among all the other fights. This one’s not likely to be a technical masterpiece. Maybe it’s because of the backstory to all this, how they were supposed to fight for so long, and how Overeem has gotten under JDS’ skin to the point dos Santos, who is usually just about the nicest guy in the world, has trash talked Overeem. Add in the stakes: JDS seems a win away from a title shot (assuming Fabricio Werdum again beats Cain Velasquez) and Overeem has revitalized his career after he seemed on his way out, and the considerable possibility of a highlight-reel knockout, and this just stands out to me more than so many other fights.As for Edgar vs. Mendes, I mean, of course I’m looking forward to Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor like everyone else, but we’ve spent so much time pondering this one by now that it it doesn’t seem like a shiny new toy anymore. Edgar vs. Mendes are the clear-cut next two in the division after the UFC 194 main eventers, it’s a great style matchup, and the stakes couldn’t be higher, with the eyes of the fight world getting to see, presumably, who will be next for the Aldo-McGregor winner. Aldo-McGregor will be a memorable spectacle and maybe even a memorable fight, but Edgar-Mendes screams “potential instant classic.”What if something goes wrong?@KevinMuehleisen: Knock on wood but what could be potential backup plans if any of the upcoming fights fall through?First off, I’m not buying into the whole attitude of “shhh … we must not talk about December, or else we’ll jinx it” that seems to be going around the MMA bubble. Screw that. I’m a lifelong Boston Red Sox fan, and all the ridiculous notions of curses and ghosts didn’t keep the Red Sox from winning in 2004.Regardless whether we pretend fight fallouts are the monster under the bed which needs to be ignored or whether we talk about it like adults, some fights will fall out between now and then. In case we needed a reminder, we got one Friday night, when Robbie Lawler had to pull out of his title defense against Carlos Condit due to a thumb injury. That’s just the nature of the game.Fortunately, UFC has a pretty airtight backup plan for the biggest show, UFC 194 on Dec. 12. They’ve got Edgar and Mendes slated to go one night before Aldo and McGregor, which means both fighters will be main-event ready if either Aldo or McGregor have to back out in the sunup to the fight. UFC 194 also features a middleweight contenders bout between Jacare Souza vs. Yoel Romero, which means someone, presumably Souza, would get a call if anything happened to Chris Weidman or Luke Rockhold leading up to their middleweight title co-main event.It’s not like every main event throughout the late fall/early winter run has as strongly detailed of a backup plan, but there are others. Ronda Rousey’s the only truly irreplaceable fighter on the upcoming docket of big fights, but if her UFC 193 opponent, Holly Holm, should fall out, I mean, it’s not like this would be the first time Miesha Tate stepped into a fight with Ronda, you know? And former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, who has been rehabbing from an injury, seems to be holding back to see if anything happens in the Rafael dos Anjos-Donald Cerrone title fight on Dec. 19 in Orlando before committing to any opponents of his own.So yes, even if we lose fights between now and December — and if we do, they’ll happen regardless of we’ve spent time talking how great that month will be — even a Plan B December schedule will still have the potential to be one of the best MMA months we’ve ever experienced.Edgar-Mendes the right place/right time?@ADillon_: What do you make of Edgar /Mendes as opposed to Edgar/Holloway and should the fight have been put on 194 instead?Edgar-Mendes is fine where it is for the reasons I just mentioned above. Not only will one of the elite guys get to step in if either Aldo or McGregor pull out, but there will be no “short camp” asterisks attached if such a fight goes down.UFC made the correct call going the Edgar-Mendes route, as well. Holloway is an impressive, young contender growing up right before our eyes, but there’s still something about him that seems one fight away from challenging an Edgar or Mendes. All the circumstances are lined up for the top four featherweights to fight the weekend of Dec. 11-12, so there’s no need to throw Holloway to the wolves.Early retirement@RuckerYeah: What’s with all the guys retiring in their 20s all of a sudden?Back when I worked at the Boston Globe, we used to joke that if a New York Times reporter walked into Starbucks and saw two people buy Frappucinos early in the week, you’d see an overwrought trend piece on Frappucinos in that following Sunday’s Times living section.Point is, we in the media are a little overeager to declare new trends at times, and I’m not ready to call the retirements of Frankie Perez and Jordan Mein anything more than a coincidence just yet.Mein has 39 pro fights at age 25. That’s equal to Fedor Emelianenko’s entire career output. That’s one short of what Anderson Silva has at age 40. Ten more than Chuck Liddell. His 10th pro fight was just after his 18th birthday. That’s a lot of wear and tear on someone who basically gave up his teenage years for a brutal business. Even if there were fighters in their 20s retiring left and right, I’d still think his reasons for quitting were pretty unique.If there is a trend starting, Perez makes a better example. On paper, there seemed to be no reason for Perez to quit, other than he’s decided this isn’t for him and it’s time to move on, which is entirely his prerogative.If, a few months from now, a handufl of similar fighters come to the same conclusion as Perez, then, sure, we’re on to something. But let’s wait and see before we call this one a trend.WMMA’s Mt. Rushmore@Patkawesome: Who is your WMMA Mt. Rushmore?Interesting thought exercise for a slow weekend, here. I mean, if someone doesn’t think Rousey belongs, they should probably be banned from watching MMA for life. Gina Carano is another no brainer. She was the first breakthrough star, the one who proved women can headline major MMA events. Showtime was squeamish about airing Carano vs. Julie Kedzie in 2007 and had to be talked into including it on an Elite XC broadcast; by 2009, Carano vs. the then-Cyborg Santos delivered Showtime record ratings.You have to reserve a spot for one of WMMA’s pioneers. You know, the women, like Kedzie and Tara LaRosa, who made very little money at first, did it out of pure love of the sport, broke down barriers, and paved the way for others after them. You could certainly make a credible case for Japanese trailblazer Megumi Fujii, but I’m going to go with Marloes Coenen, who made more of a worldwide impact.So that leaves the final spot, which for me, comes down to Cyborg Justino or Miesha Tate.Justino’s record in the cage speaks for itself, starting with mauling Carano and through her continued dominance of the featherweight division. Of course, she also has the giant albatross of her steroid suspension after a Dec. 2011 fight in San Diego on her permanent record.As for Tate, if it wasn’t for Rousey, we’d be talking about Tate as the greatest bantamweight of all-time. Would Rousey have become as big as a star as she was without Tate as a capable foil? Tate is the second-biggest star in women’s MMA and had a solid run as Strikeforce champ.I’m torn on which way to go with this one. How much does Justino’s cheating affect her legacy, and is that enough to give Tate the nod over her? I’m curious what you guys and gals have to say.Got a question for a future edition of Fightweets?

This Craftsman-style manor for sale on Commonwealth Terrace is a rare find for many reasons, the most interesting of which is that it was built in 1912 for a distant cousin of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.Situated on a hilltop corner lot just steps from Comm. Ave. (and the Green Line, naturally), the bungalow boasts plenty of privacy thanks to mature trees and plantings. A set of stone steps leads to the grand front porch, and around the corner, there’s a sizable driveway, a garage, and a fenced-in yard. Inside, period details abound, from crown molding and stained glass windows to stately wainscoting and wood-burning fireplaces. There are more modern features, too, like a newly updated kitchen, renovated bathrooms, and a new furnace.The home stretches to a whopping 3,384 square feet—indeed rarity within city limits. There’s the potential for an in-law suite in the walk-out lower level, and up above, the master suite connects to a seasonal sunroom. It overlooks the street below, and would be the perfect reading nook, if you ask us.For information, contact George Ballantyne, Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty, sothebysrealty.com.Photo via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyPhoto via Gibson Sotheby’s International RealtyThe Boston Home team has curated a list of the best home design and home remodeling professionals in Boston, including architects, builders, kitchen and bath experts, lighting designers, and more.

PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland — The requiem came in a whisper. A small group had gathered by the 9th green of Royal Portrush to pay their respects to Tiger Woods’s dearly departed Open chances. Roger Maltbie, in a moment of candor between TV takes, said softly what all the mourners were feeling: “There’s nothing there. He can’t hit it in the fairway and he can’t hit it out of this stuff” — he ran his foot through the gnarly rough — “so how long can this last?”The mood was as gloomy as the dark skies. Tiger’s round had begun with a snipey smother-pull stinger that didn’t sting. More dispiriting was the wince that followed. It was more than metaphysical. Woods had looked stiff and creaky in his last start, at foggy Pebble Beach. A month with no competitive golf had followed, leading to questions about the state of the reconstituted spine. (In little moments of candor Woods has hinted at the physical toll of his Masters victory.) Now, after a long flight across the ocean, how would he fare at cold, wind-blown Portrush? That wince said it all, and it only got worse from there.Tiger Woods is off the first tee at Royal Portrush. Little grimace after his drive. Not good. pic.twitter.com/Fm2aotBFO7— Kyle Boone (@Kyle__Boone) July 18, 2019Woods followed his drive on the 1st hole with a tentative swing out of the weeds, coming up miles short of the green, though he saved par with a crafty bunker shot. On the downwind par-5 2nd — the easiest hole on the course — Woods drove into a fairway bunker and had to scramble for par, giving up half a shot to the field.After a routine par on 3 — was it me or did it take him a really long time to bend down to tee up his ball? — Tiger had a long wait on the 4th tee box. He did a series of stretches and gyrations, looking like an old man at the YMCA trying to get loose before aqua-aerobics. The 5th hole is when Woods’ game began to seize up. While plenty of other players were having a go at this downhill par-4, Woods laid up to an awkward yardage, leaving a half-wedge that had no zip and trickled to the back of the green. A three-putt bogey ensued.At the par-3 6th, Tiger produced a strike so hollow — to use his favorite term of disparagement — his ball helplessly drifted left on the wind. That left a tough chip … followed by another. Suddenly, Woods faced a do-or-die 6-footer to save bogey. As he waited to putt, the skies darkened, and by the time Woods stood over his ball a cold, hard rain was falling. The crowd sensed the magnitude of the moment and it was dead still, the only sound the pitter-patter of the raindrops falling upon umbrellas. Woods blew the putt and trudged to the next tee, his face clouded with disgust. “Wasn’t hitting it solid,” he said afterward. “Everything was off the heel. Just trying to scrape it around.”
