Just my opinion but there is NO WAY that Cosmo breaks ground anytime soon.
So this morning I called the office of Simplon Development (Cosmo's developer) to inquired about the project. I asked why they started construction on the sales office but haven't finished it yet. All the woman could say is "It's coming along". When asked whether the project is being delayed, she then said that she only answered the phone and couldn't really answer that. Hmmmm.......

I drove by the site tonight. There is no evidence of anything about to happen. In fact, the current site still has the old VW dealership building and a home/garden type shop opened up on a portion of it. I am unsure if teh home/garden/chatchski store is leaving any time soon. I hope so tho.
