It was disheartening but not surprising to learn that Cate Street Capital is already starting to walk away from the commitments it had with the town. We knew going in that the economics didn't work, and that is was just a matter of time before corners were cut and promises program.
This week we learned that there will be no River Walk, and I'm sure soon we'll learn that landscaping is too expensive and that since nothing matters but profit, the plant will continue to be a massive eyesore in the middle of our town.
And, by the way, the alleged difficulties in creating the River Walk are pure and utter BS. I run around that exact territory
regularly and there is absolutly no reason why, with some imagination and engineering you couldn't put a River Walk in. Pretty funny that a company that says it "provides innovative green technologies" doesn't have the green technology to create a Riverwalk in Berlin.Cate Street Capital is just too cheap, and our City Council too much in their pocket, to enforce the agreement.
