I don't know the details, but looking at the building, I can see some "ingredients" that probably added considerably to the cost.
Yea!!! Rowlett......Go!! Rowlett........Any more good news and we won't be able to get developers in Rowlett unless we give them 50 years of tax breaks........oh, we've already done that. I wonder what we'll have to do to get "top shelf" developers to Rowlett.....100 years of tax breaks?
Whoops......wait a minute. Bay View IS "top shelf." I don't know what concessions were granted for Bay View. Now I'm more worried about Rowlett "officialdom" designing it, too. I don't need "officialdom" looking out after my interests. If the developer, Kent Donahue, looks after his own interests, I will do just fine. Donahue is an experienced developer attempting to make a profit. You don't attract buyers and tenants by developing junk. It's okay for the city to oversee certain traditional capital improvements, but they should leave their maniacal obsession with Form Base Codes on the back burner. The old Robertson Park area isn't exactly inner city Philadelphia.
