City tries its hand at real estate speculation

The first paragraph in this article says it all:
Fort Wayne wants control over how the land near Parkview Field is used, despite having no specific plan for development.
One would think that officials would welcome almost any private investment downtown. Instead, the city has bought this land so that it can cherry-pick potential buyers. If the redevelopment commission tries to micromanage downtown land usage, fewer businesses will be interested in locating there. It seems like many businesses "support" downtown but refuse to move there.

Poor John's Lounge probably wouldn't want another competitor so close nearby.

I say we build a rooftop lounge on top of poor John's and run a cable car from there to the stadium.
