I hate the eagerness to lump everyone together, but are some posters comparing this actual project to an imaginary project? Or am I misinterpreting complaints? No one's stopping any of our posters from bankrolling a $250+ million dollar tower that they would like to build.
Yes, but I said "alleged" and I was under the impression that the other version of this project was in fact quite real, but isn't what Opus is doing.
And FWIW, yes, when I get $250M I will ABSOLUTELY pour that money into the city (half joking -- I always thovught to myself that if I ever am lucky/good enough to become a big-time developer it would be fun to "donate" one project a year/cycle to the city, and make it a zero CAP project that's higher quality than a for-profit developer would ever construct. A different form of charity, if you will, for people like us to appreciate).
Do we have to have a bankroll that large to critique this project? I mean everyone else does all the time, so presumably you all are one hell of an elite group of Urbanists!
