I have had numerous conversations with William about this project and we believe if there is no movement here in the next 6 months this is DOA. They had better get their act together if they are going to open in time for the new schedule they have posted.
I'm afraid it'll be a shorter timeline than this even. They've had a while now to get things moving, but they seem to have very little in the line of publicity or even public support for it.
And is this really even feasible? The era of the showroom is coming to a close, I'm afraid, and this may very soon be a very expensive anachronism. Are doctors and medical professionals really going to flock from all over the country to see fixed setups from medical companies at a location such as this, as opposed to your standard convention and trade shows?
Correct me if I'm looking at this in the entirely wrong way.

There is a reason NYC pulled the plug on this...it won't work.

Not to mention that the name just seems silly to me. I know there's the whole Merchandise Mart landmark thing in Chicago, but if this opens, every time I walk by I won't be able to think of anything other than a cut-rate walker and motorized wheel chair dealer (think: the Seinfeld episode where Kramer has to buy the wheel chair). Wal-Mart and K-Mart have completely ruined the connotations of that particular contraction of Market for me.
Ha! So true.. I guess that's why this one is actually a 'trade center'

What I saw on news channel 5 last night that the project is still a go . It's 40% leased, still waiting in till it's 60% for construction to begin.
Hasn't it been at 40% for quite awhile though?
