I think it is absolutely ridiculous that local media is letting Stark get away with overpromising and underdelivering (er, not delivering at all) on something he has been front and center pushing for over five years. Where is the criticism directed against him? Why isn't any reporter at least hounding him for an interview so he may publicly comment on the latest status with this project? I have no idea who Stark is or what his reputation is among developers, but as a new resident to this area and as an urbanist who wants nothing but forward momentum for Cleveland, he seems like a colossal disappointment (Beacon notwithstanding).
Bottom line: reporters should be pressuring him for a public comment. Developers like him need to eat crow if this is dead. Those nuCLEus signs near the Q ought to be removed. And he owes Cleveland an update after years of benefitting from free media and big promises on what would have been such a nice transformational project.
