Environmental group objects to zoning that allows waterfront towers

An environmental group wants the state environmental secretary, Matt Beaton, to reconsider new zoning he recently approved for Boston’s downtown waterfront, raising the prospect of a lawsuit that could further delay long-planned towers along Boston Harbor.

The nonprofit Conservation Law Foundation said Beaton’s decision to allow a 600-foot-tall tower on the site of the Boston Harbor Garage and a 305-foot-high tower on the site of Hook Lobster violates state law, and sets a bad precedent by trading public access to the waterfront without gaining much in return.
