I guess you can put the final nail int he Landing coffin. FL-GA and the like would move to the Cordish project.

Pretty much. Sleiman would have to counter with something like making the Landing a mix of a local food hall, limited retail supported by the Northbank core and some strategic cultural use type destinations. Cordish is like a new age Rouse. They probably aren't going to jump all in on a local authentic route. You'll get a similar tenant mix to the other Live developments across the country. However, who knows what's going to happen with the Landing, outside of it being tied up in court for years.

Looking through Cordish's portfolio. Could we possibly see a "LIVE!" hotel & entertainment concept coming to the sports complex area? It's really one of the pieces that's missing outside of any major shopping experience. Especially since all recent Khan roads have been pointing towards both hotel and entertainment. Why not knock out both with someone who has the experience?

Here's a thought. They are moving the entertainment part of the Shipyards to the sports complex proper. They are saving the Shipyards and the District for Amazon.

Hopefully, it will be built on Lot J in the image above.

Thank you.  That was going to be my next question. 

Is there currently enough parking down there for Jags games, assuming a full house?  I mean, would giving up this lot greatly impact parking?

Sleiman is pretty much putting the nail in himself

The Shipyards was supposedly included as part of the Amazon pitch, with the Jags blessing.

Mark Lamping worked closely with the city on the pitch.

Clearly not going to happen, but Shipyards for Amazon was definitely discussed.

It would certainly affect parking revenue. But it was always in the long-term plans to develop some lots, and potentially to build more garages to make up for the lost spaces. That's why the lots are gridded following the nearby street pattern.
