Quote of the day: make sure Spire developer pays for DuSable park

“If Kelleher can come up with a billion or more to finance the Spire, he should have no trouble sorting through his pocket change to come up with a $6,000,000 good-faith commitment to fund DuSable [park]. The city should put the screws to Kelleher to get this money, now, before they allow him to turn a single spade of soil for his gargantuan project. That way, even in the worst case scenario – Kelleher goes bust and the Spire goes unfinished – we at least get the park and DuSable finally gets his fitting memorial.”
