@JonC/Urbanetc.

Don't get sidetracked.

As interesting/awful as the corollary stories are, the point remains that this iconic building is NOT the right site for affordable housing. If the discussion becomes how 'evil' the proponents are, you will be accused of not liking the project because of who is proposing it, rather than the merits. On the merits alone, the proposal fails all kinds of tests, regarless of who is backing it!
The sidebar issues just make everyone look bad as Dreshel said. The columnist, however, nicely avoided blaming himself and his paper for editorially backing a flawed project. The rest of the world may not pay lots of attnetion to editorial writings but rest assured the politicians do.
Today's letters to the editor are a truer reflection of public feeling on this issue, as readers to this site already knew.
