Excellent article. What does it take to create optimal conditions?

(In my observation, in the case of BNY after having recently gotten familiar w it myself):

Manufacturing zoning that cannot be converted to residential;

competent planners;

lots of public AND private money up front;

as many stakeholders as possible;

a native base of intelligent;  ambitious entrepreneurs;

a multi-generational commitment from all parties.

Mix ingredients, let settle for 5-30 years, and don't lift the top off the pot!
