They even could have placed another hotel above the convention center to maximize density and give the skyline another shot in the arm.

I really do like the open space. Few cities can boast about that much park space so centrally located.
You're right about the open park space and I think that is the one positive out of this entire project. I'm still (obviously) bitter about the design and how it came about.
