From Business Journal:

Cordish has "momentarily paused" the start of construction for Three Light, but Benjamin said he anticipates work will begin in the third or fourth quarters of 2020, overlapping with progress on the Midland project.

Many of the Cordish locations are slowly starting to open back up. No clear sign when Maryland Live casino will open back up, despite the fact they've installed thermal imaging cameras, plexiglass partitions and taken other steps to make it safe.

Insane amount of money being lost over something with a .4% mortality rate, but hey.... what are you going to do!

If everything had just stayed open no one would have lost any money.

Just ask the airlines.

Power and Light has picked up quite a bit over the past 2 weeks from my observations. Any indication if 3 Light will get redesigned to cut costs?

^^ The St. Louis apartment building is supposed to open soon which will bring in additional revenues. I think their office building never closed and the hotel is still closed.

They won’t cut any costs due to the virus and current situation. Cordish feels there’s still plenty of demand left.

Go ask Sweden how staying open worked out for their economy. Just stop with this. It's a horrible situation that has no good answer for "the economy". Sorry.

That seems in-line with my experiences. I think any permanent shift to WFH will only benefit downtown living in KC. Urban minded people on the coasts will have more flexibility to move to low-cost cities such as our own. I don't envision WFH to as big of a thing in KC offices but it would only benefit us.

I’m not about the economy over the virus by any means. I think time will tell if the world handled this properly or if we tossed ourselves into a worldwide recession and didn’t need to.

The world was caught with its pants down and it’s pathetic that a virus with such a low mortality rate can cause this much damage to the world. We will never truly know how many people’s live this will have cost, because you can’t track the deaths associated with being tossed into poverty, suicide etc.

Bullshit talking points like these taking root will guarantee that we are caught with our pants down with the next virus.

“Bullshit talking points”, oh please tell me what’s not true? My point isn’t that the virus isn’t serious, it’s very serious. My point is that it’s scary that a virus with such a low mortality rate can do so much harm. If I’m any country, I’m taking 10% of my defense budget and focusing on nothing but bio weapons because that shit is way scarier than bombs.

The best man in my wedding is an infectious disease doctor, he doesn’t think my comments are Bullshit at all.

I'm impressed that the best man at your wedding takes time to read your rag posts.

I shouldn't even have engaged in this topic here. I read enough of it everywhere else. I'm out.

I’m obviously not implying he has read anything on here. I’m referencing the many conversations I’ve had with him on the topic.

I’m not sure what part of my comment you take issue with, but I’m not shocked by the cheeky comments considering the entire topic is so divisive. If you don’t wear a mask and tell everyone how scared you are of it, people assume you don’t think it’s serious or even worse, people assume you think it’s a conspiracy.

Regardless, we can get back on topic. I didn’t think anyone would be so easily sparked by my comments.

I think we should all agree wearing a mask is not divisive right now. That's a layup good person thing to do.
