Good points in the comment above. I've not kept up w/this development. I did think that there were investors involved, based on what I read approx 2-3 years ago. But I could be wrong, and/or they pulled out.

In more positive news, Cooley Landing Park opens next month! They have a good Facebook page is you haven't checked it out.
