Herein lies the problem. This forum appears to be mostly architecture students and/or architecture nerds who are interested in pretty buildings. They aren't interested in the business of development, just the end result. They want this project to go forward and don't have the experience or knowledge to understand the issues that have been apparent for years. So you get a bunch of people cheerleading projects that were doomed from the start.
I remember reading the exact same arguments when Fortress Real was running their scam for years and tons of architecture fans fell for it, hook, line, and sinker.
Reading the comments here make me audibly chuckle. People have ZERO clue what they are talking about and get constant upvotes and validation. But that's the internet for you. The people with actual knowledge and expertise are shouted down by the loud idiots.
This project will be finished one day but it won't be this iteration of the project. If Sam and Jenny were in the US they would be both be getting a full ride scholarship to Con College. The only thing saving them right now is Canada's ineptitude and disinterest in prosecuting white collar crime.
What a crock of you know what...
