Вот эта веселая зеленая область в левой части картинки вдоль реки. Не сомневаюсь, что там появится удобный причал для трансатлантических дирижаблей, биохакерская клиника на тысячу пациентов, огромная подземная оранжерея с круглосуточным освещением для гидропонного выращивания кустов коки, и зона свободной торговли с Китаем и Ираном.

To ensure that underrepresented groups get a fair share of jobs and contracts, developer Related Midwest has created a “diversity council” of outside partners, including nonprofits and minority contracting and labor groups. The council will monitor hiring and contracting for the planned $7 billion mixed-use development, which is expected to generate 15,000 construction jobs and 24,000 permanent jobs.

“We’re not just going to have a job fair and call it a day,” Related Midwest’s Dan Biernacki told the Sun-Times.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get this right, and set the standard for how other organizations can do this in the city, state and nation,” said Jorge Perez of the Hispanic American Construction Industry Association.

Очередная позиция, которая "не глупость, а просто деловой расчет".
