Cross Street Market redevelopment flawed

I read with astonishment Arsh Mirmiran's comment defending Caves Valley Partners' ill-considered plan to evict Nick's as part of its proposed Cross Street Market renovation ("As Cross Street Market developer shares details, community members share concerns," Jan. 9).

"We are not doing this project to make money," he told The Sun.

But if the giant vacant hole Caves Valley Partners has created in downtown Towson is any guide, perhaps the city should find a partner motivated by profit so it will actually complete projects and give the community what it wants.
