It's not going to cause a massive redevelopment boom like what Wicker and Logan have undergone the last decade or two, but it SHOULD certainly bring some fresh faces and new money into the general area! What in the hell is wrong with that? It's not like any new development in Woodlawn is going to feature million dollar condos!
