That's a pretty good analogy at the end

I agree with you that both pieces are really quite vacuous.

To your and CK08's points - I want to stress again that several of the proposed uses in NDXC explicitly cannibalize Eddy St. uses from the Campus Master Plan (which is apparently still at least partially operative, per Jenkins' dorm announcement yesterday).

Centralization can definitely end up as too much of a good thing. The "city within a city" model has a long history (both good and bad), and never forcing students to leave the same 500' x 500' area might not be the best thing. ND is much more Holland, MI than it is Detroit, but here we are dropping a Renaissance Center in the middle of campus.
