I'm a thinkin' we need some real estate red meat for Paul-doh and Bilbo.
In today's Bulletin: "Few Builders Make Use of Fee Deferrals."
Ever tried to push a wet noodle?
Also in today's paper: "Wilson Development in Works Once Again."
Well, if you read the story -- not really. They want to change the zoning to higher density. (Which would make whoever develops the land more money per foot, no?)
This little tidbit was interesting: The project was being developed when: "...the head investor died shortly afterward and the project lost steam." Once again unmentioned was that the 'head investor' committed suicide, I believe. Which I think is an important part of the story -- it speaks to the very viability of the original project. It didn't fail because of random circumstances.
I know that the Bulletin doesn't want to add the burden and grief of the families -- me neither, and I've avoided using the name. But I still think it is part of the news...
