Progress in Bayside?

"City councilors on Monday approved the sale of nearly two acres of land on Somerset Street, a $1.72 million deal they hope will kick-start another round of development in Portland's Bayside neighborhood.

The approval followed questions about the plans that MaineHealth and the United Way of Greater Portland have for the area.

Critics said the $40 million office and parking garage complex would create an unsafe walkway between the new structures and take too much space from a developing trail system."
