Georgetown prognostication

See if you get the same feeling from this article as I do. Namely, the Georgetown developer got a break on the demolition grant, but isn't saying whether he has money to build the new thing.

That is, there'll be a demolition site sitting there for years while the current guy goes broke and the city scrambles to find somebody else. See Maiden Lane as an example, or remember what South Main and William used to look like.

Is this just the way it goes, or is Ann Arbor especially trusting?
