The project is now in serious jeopardy as a result. This is a very standard and customary request and something anyone financing improvements at the airport (or anywhere else there is a ground lease for that matter) is going to need. We aren’t asking for anything that liens the City property or causes any harm to the City and have always been open to reasonable modifications or edits. I truly hope we can all be professionals and work together so we don’t have to resort to filing a lawsuit and waste tax payers dollars over something so silly.
