On the 238th anniversary of the original Boston Tea Party, Mark DiNapoli, President and General Manager of Suffolk Construction’s Northeast Region, joined officials from the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum to celebrate the raising and placement of the cupola on the roof of the museum structure. This milestone event marked the topping off of the $27 million, 18,700 square-foot project.

“Suffolk Construction is extremely honored to be building such a prominent and historically significant project in the City of Boston,” stated DiNapoli. “We know that on this day, December 16th, a pivotal event occurred in the history of our country. Today, we celebrate the boldness of a group of present-day entrepreneurs, visionaries, and advocates who persevered to bring the vision of the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum to reality.”

A.B. $27 million?

Silly me, I thought we were still going through a recession. I thought the MBTA was bleeding money? 93 North is pretty bumpy.

But I guess it’s a good use of $27 million dollars if you think about it. I mean it will be open forever & nothing could possibly go wrong.
