We Told You So
Last week’s recommendation of Eagle Realty as developer of The Banks was no surprise to us. We told you it was coming, in the April 26 edition of “Porkopolis,” before CityBeat had a blog.
The first part of the prediction — “The commissioners will choose a developer team, including Eagle Realty …” — is still in process. So far only the county advisory panel has recommended it (see Kevin Osborne’s story, “Friends of Phil,” in today’s edition of CityBeat). We hope the full prediction won’t come true: “The commissioners will choose a developer team, including Eagle Realty, without input from the city and will attempt to get the project up and running, but it’ll stall again when the phantom funding promised by the county doesn’t materialize.”
