"That deal closes July 18th."

Unless it doesn't.

Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

It's about time.

If Rummell can really deliver on this, he's going to be enshrined as one of the people who changed this city forever. And he'd deserve it.
So, to the young people fighting in this movement for change, here is my charge: march in the streets, protest, run for school committee or city council or the state legislature. And win. - Ed Markey

I'm not sure about that. How many units has Vestcor added in the core? No one is saying they changed the city.

Agreed. I can’t see a negative (aside from whether or not it was the best use of incentive money). Transformative? No.

The District will absolutely be transformative for the Southbank, and I think it's one of those catalytic projects like the Laura Street Trio that will cause a lot of other dominoes to fall behind it.

I think will have residual effects on everything from JTA's new Skyway, to Duval County Schools and their HQ, to the way people use the riverwalk.

I also think it's going to create some friendly competition with Khan and the Jags.

Can you imagine looking across the river and seeing all those cranes at the District, while the Shipyards and Met Park sit their on your front lawn festering away?

Further down the line, I think we're going to see some really cool synergy between the District and Lot J/Shipyards.

Good times ahead.

I'm incredibly excited about the Ambassador Hotel project.  Hope I'm wrong, but I'm just very doubtful that the District gets off the ground and that the deal looks anything like it's described today.  Will the city build a street grid on the District property so that once Elements fades, we are left with urban plots for other developers?

2034. Wow. Little to no optimism? If that is true, I...will...be...dead.
