Potential Downtown Neighbor

Not that this is a brand new video, but I find it more exciting than most of the other press coverage about building a stadium.  

Last year, downtown lost a prospective buyer because our city had failed to capitalize upon our position on the Mississippi.  They were shocked that this resource didn't have more public use space.  This plan to build a stadium has too many factors to mention, but seeing it materialize with the support it has garnered this summer is inspiring, and considering its place just north of the newly redesigned archgrounds is especially appealing.

The Harvard study is a good plug for the overall investment OPPORTUNITY, but in my mind, only if every phase of the project is well thought out and other positive changes (ie City to River) materialize.
