    Jeramey Jannene, It would make an interesting article to compare North Western Mutual new 450 million dollar downtown building and surrounding projects with the out of town billionaire’s proposed new arena project in terms of; tax incremental financing, percentage of jobs to city residents, city and state involvement and spurring new development.

    Also, it would be interesting to know if the NWM downtown building developments are a magnet in the out of town billionaires supposedly upper hand in negotiations to stay in Milwaukee.

    Given the fact Milwaukee political leadership have proven time and time again they have no “Growth Leadership Vision” in keeping pace with other cities in the nation similar in size and geo-location e.g. Minneapolis and Chicago.

    These billionaires may view Milwaukee and the State, as EASY PICKINGS willing to giveaway away promising prime downtown land and taxpayer giveaways financing.

    Studying mention, and not mention comparisons might reveal hidden motivation by the new Bucks owners gamble purchasing a third-rate NBA team.

    More than likely another team in the NBA will relocate to a booming city like Milwaukee, to take advantage of the vacuum if the Bucks leave.

    tony M. while I may agree with most of your comment, in what world is Chicago the “same size” as Milwaukee? Chicago’s metro area is bigger in population than the entire state of Wisconsin. Minneapolis is a fair compairson, Chicago certainly is not!

    Actually, Chicago and the twin cities may be geographically in the same region, but the metro area pops are so far apart, even the the twin cities are a poor comparison, Chicago is around 9.5 million, twins 3.5 million and MKE 1.5 million
