Their premier "Cosmopolitan by the Canal" rental thing that they are now supplementing by a similar thing on a neighboring Indianapolis lot, was nothing during construction but combustible wood frame above a reinforced concrete retail ground floor:
Then there is this picture of it:

They did a "Phoenix" from the ashes, and it's now near 100% occupancy, and I hope they are getting first floor commercial tenants, since that's what was lagging.
Presuming they want to minimize or eliminate any chance of a repeat in Ramsey, those folks have to pay for private security at a level sufficient to meet that purpose.
Our Ramsey Police are not Flaherty hand-holders. It is NOT their job, and with budget being a concern, those the city are able to afford to employ in law enforcement are for the city, its residents, and not for Landform or its allied developers to overutilize and begger the security of existing and established neighborhoods.
Hopefully with the fire history Flaherty's insurance carrier will be requiring site security as a term and condition of issuing a policy. The point is that it is Flaherty's private sector responsibility, his cost to bear, not the responsibility of Ramsey's taxpayer-citizens to watch that project tightly while at vulnerable stages. And if there is a fire, possibly then an owner project abandonment, one wonders, what's Ramsey's security position re insurance proceeds? Zippo, I expect.
I hope the city is insuring itself separately, for the bonding amount, in case of tornado, fire or other devastating mishap.
Bottom line put simply: I don't want the neighbor's home burgled because the cops are subsidizing Flaherty yet more, in yet another way. End of story.
