Once again tagging in off the top rope after the great Dave Levinthal does the actual legwork, I point you to his report from Mayor Leppert’s speech this morning at a Belo Mansion breakfast hosted by The Real Estate Council. The money quote, in reference to pretty much every controversial project (the Convention Center hotel, the Trinity Project, etc.) under his watch:
“But if we’re not willing to invest in the city, then in essence, we’re throwing up the white flag. The greatest risk is that we don’t move forward, that we don’t invest, that we accept mediocrity.”
So there you go. Get yer ya-yas out in the comments, which I have helpfully turned on.
