Byram regrets the failure of the Whaba boys’s condo project. Total bullshit. The community held up this project for years, screaming about size, scope, the lack of free ice cream for kids,whatever, until they succeeded in getting it scaled down to a completely unprofitable size. Now the head of that opposition (or to be fair, his successor) laments the “market timing” that doomed the project. Nonsense. I wrote columns on this, back when I had a column at Greeniwch Post, asking what, exactly Byram wanted.
They got what they wanted – a derelict, abandoned project that they now complain is a blight on the neighborhood. No sympathy here.
