If you didn’t know. You had better ask somebody. Everybody knows that Mayor Brown’s Downtown Investment Authority is slammin and jammin. They are kicking butt and chewing gum but they’re all out of gum, to put it in the parlance of our times.
In spite of a handful of naysayers who try to call the DIA’s first 6 months in existence an exercise in doing absolutely nothing, it looks like its strategy is working. In spite of the deal’s relatively nonexistent involvement, collaboration, advisement, or maybe even foreknowledge by the City, I think we can all call this deal a huge victory for Brown.
