This is pretty bottom of the barrel. It is good news for one reason - added tax revenue - but we will need a lot more business to even begin to justify the Red Hill in terms of upfront cost and negative externalities (sprawl, commuter drain, big box). I opposed it, but now that it's there, I hope for the benefits it was supposed to bring. That is not hypocritical, it is the correct attitude.

As someone who is currently forced to commute I just can't get excited about jobs in this area. It's just as far away as where I'm currently working except there is no effective transit. Anyone who works on the floor at this new facility will spend a significant portion of their wages on the vehicle that is required to get there. This is not progress.
