“These 3,000 people that work there need places to live, eat and shop.”
But they already have places to live, and they’re nowhere near the corner of Parnell and St. Louis Avenue, they’re not going to shop on that corner, either, and they’ll eat at the company cafeteria, or brown bag it.
Believe me, they’ll build only what they need to between Cass, Jefferson/Parnell, St. Louis Avenue, and 22nd, and not one square foot more, and the people that work there will only be there for as long as they need to to do their jobs.
The video says that moving the civilian part of NGA to Arnold sprouted all sorts of new businesses around there. Yes, because it’s Arnold, not Bell Curve City St. Louis. That and people actually want to be around Norm.
