Trinity River Vision Reconsidered

A Friday leftover: Jack Z. Smith reconsiders his prior disapproval and comes out in favor of the Trinity River Vision. "Cities that are constantly reinventing themselves, thinking boldly and willing to take risks, are more likely to thrive. The chances of success often are magnified if the public and private sectors are providing ideas, money, talent and elbow grease. ... That's a big reason why, despite the criticisms of Uptown, that I keep coming back to an overriding conclusion: There's a whole lot to like about this project, and it's worth the risk."

I'm not sure that it really matters. This project WILL happen, because, unlike the slowly unfolding trainwreck that is Dallas' Trinity River plan, I don't hear anyone talking about this. Am I wrong here?
