Auto-sales businessman Herb Chambers has sold the former WLVI-TV property at 75 Morrissey Boulevard for $14.5 million. According to the Dorchester Reporter:
“Chambers sold the parcel to POB CC 75 MORRISSEY LLC, a subsidiary of the Center Court, a New York-based firm that pulled out of an agreement to buy the Globe property earlier this year… Civic leaders who reviewed the new Chambers plan last summer asked that he postpone it amid uncertainty surrounding the future of the 16.5-acre Globe property next door at 135 Morrissey Blvd.
David Ridini of Center Court Properties reportedly had a deal with the Globe to purchase the site for more than $80 million. The agreement fell apart in May 2017. The newspaper’s staff relocated to new offices on State Street last week.”
