Here we go again. First they designed a massive open aircraft hanger sized structure that will cost a mint to heat, now they say the fill is not strong enough and the bedrock is uneven so they will have to drive pilings or float a heavy base under it to support it. Not to mention the size of the property originally sought but abandoned for a smaller site, (read parking) plus pedestrian accessibility.

Seems to me there is a better site that would be easier to access and a new design that is more economically sustainable than the disaster that has been to date proposed. Why not the plot behind Tatsuda's or some other that is pedestrian friendly?

We don't need another expensive boondoggle.
