The developers of One Steamboat Place don't really want to build affordable housing at the base area. It costs them too much money, and it's a lot of work. Luckily we have our strong City Council to enforce the inclusionary zoning ordinance. I feel so relieved. Excuse me while I take my tongue out of my cheek.
