I am still really bummed out that the build out is 3 to 5 years. Would have really liked to see this project tackled all at once...seems this would be the least disruptive and most cost effective in terms of construction.
I'm with Echoes. I think this is great news. Nasser seems much more transparent about the project than Lobsinger and Lake Placid's proposal, when we were promised for months that he was "just one signature" away from securing financing.
I'm excited to see the final product and I'm wondering how the renders have changed. I didn't mind the initial renders, but it'll be interesting to see how the details been finessed, what the floor plans will look like, etc.
As for the build-out time frame, I think that's realistic. Any major project takes time (thinking of buildings like the new Academic Health Sciences wings) and it's extremely encouraging to hear talk about the project going ahead at all.
