I’ve never been a fan of the Eagle Market Street redevelopment project that has been trying to get off the ground for about fifteen years. Beside the fact it had beginnings tainted with legal challenges, the developers proposed creating subsidized housing in a high-rent district. To belabor the obvious, conventional wisdom teaches the subsidies could go further somewhere else. Although many public agenda items turned out to be repeats, for awhile local governments were regularly approving millions for the project. Well, it is now 2016, and spokespeople are hemming and hawing about a completion date. I can’t help thinking the $4 million concrete mistake responsible for the current delays would not have happened in a totally free market.
