How are you going to fund a parking deck that is reserved for the public?

The single most difficult financial hurdle is the parking deck. The cost of the parking deck is currently estimated to be around $6.1 million, a significant sum. No developer could or would absorb that cost, as the deck is mostly a public amenity. Using the money raised from the sale of the 84, 88 and 90 N. Avondale Road properties and the windfall of tax revenue generated largely from the hotel into the TAD, this $6.1 million cost can be absorbed with no capital outlay from the City or DDA.
