IF and ONLY IF this office space is used for non-gas industry, well paying jobs, does it truly benefit the citizens in this area.--wwhickok

Why the animosity towards the gas industry? Why is one well paying job better than another? If by well paying you mean manufacturing, fuggettaboutit! As Bruce said, "These jobs are going boys and they ain't coming back." So, all the high rise offices in the cities are no good because they don't offer the type of job you think they should? I just don't get the resistance to change and development. It's here to stay and all the grumbling won't make it stop or go away. This is 2013, not 1950 and it will never be 1950 again in any respect.

It sounds like some of the posters here need to get their heads out of their backsides and actually look around at the development that is going on. A large portion of it is private investment and these people don't toss away money, unlike our govt, on a maybe. We have a product to produce and sell. Yes, it may not stay in the area. To those who are miffed about that, what would you do if those producing goods in other states and countries kept all they produced only for themselves? Can you see the silliness of the comment? We are in a global economy, like it or not, and that means we sell to other states and countries what we produce.

The Community Arts Center contributes nothing to the local arts scene. I think the Pajama Factory is more significant.

What's going to happen when all the wells are drilled? Do the wells go in to a "monitor and maintain" mode where one guy monitors the well and it's all controlled electronically? My guess is once everything is in place it's all controlled via remote. Every now and then someone will have to visit the site to do maintenance but I can't see the wells needing more than one or two people for everyday. So who is going to sit in the 100,000 sq. ft “class A” office space? 160 foot tall black-glass office building? Sounds like it'll be giving the "middle finger" to the valley.
