I enjoy how the writer of the KBR piece acknowledges that a mostly-residential (i.e., don’t try to do anything special, just sell the thing off) use is “possible” but complains that it isn’t very interesting.
These planner types don’t realize that their tastes and desires aren’t valid reasons to try to force development to happen in a normal way.
That should be, an “abnormal” way.
