SCT, while from a base land cost yes that would be a little cheaper, Actual construction cost may be a little more but the other pieces of the puzzle that would be needed in the long run are not in place in Pender and probably won't be for years. Sewer capacity is limited and right now ends in Rocky Point. Restaurants, shopping, and other entertainment is not available. These assets and other perks are what will make this viable. Each City has it's pros and cons. I just think of what can be done in the next few years with the added Hotels and the proximity to the convention center. Pender is just not the answer now. I think it is amazing what they did in Durham. The same, on almost the same scale could be along the Wilmington Waterfront. Cost and how to pay for it will be key. I don't see it happening without the county on board. It would be nice to figure a way to do it regionally with Pender and Brunswick. I don't know How that could be structured. It can not be with property taxes that is a given. I still want to see something in writing.
