Treasure or No?

A WSJ story Saturday on the conversion of Treasure Island into a pedestrian eco-wonderland is a pretty straight-up summary on the whole project, including a quote from an excitable think tank director who says it "could turn out to be one of the premier examples of base conversions in the country." But Tony Hall, who used to head the effort but was ousted after locking horns with Gavin, remains frowny-faced: "My contention is you'll never see that island developed under this present scheme." He cites the cost of toxic cleanup and seismic prep as potential project killers. [WSJ, previously]
