Again, in the news article the developer is saying that market studies show that the construction of lagoon and fountain are not supported by the study. Another way to say the same thing is that the market study supports the abandonment of the lagoon and fountain. That is what the developer is spinning. The two meanings are not exactly the same thing. The developer is trying to twist his story as being supported by the people to justify eliminating the amenities. Well, I don't know who he is talking to. He won't tell us. All I have is his opinion of what market research shows, without disclosing the data or the manner in which the data was compiled.
In other words, "Trust me." If the city has information supporting the developer's wishes, where is it? If they don't, I can give them the names of awfully good lawyers.
