Get your hands on the latest Architect's Newspaper and let me and my colleagues show you how multi-headed public agencies are stalling as they try to finance better public transit. Then consider the conventional wisdom roiling investors' minds, nugget-ized in an April 22 Deutsche Bank report that warned of $200 million in defaults on commercial losses this year. So if public transit money lies in a political snakepit and commercial landlords are looking at oblivion, where do we look for investment in replenishing our cities? Private, green-focused funds like that at the Jonathan Rose Companies look promising as models and as investments. I'll be following them in coming weeks.
