Jarrett Walkers pro Trimet essay on the Powell redevelopment deal

In case you don't know who Jarrett Walker is, he (and his associates) are basically a pro public transportation 'think tank' for the industry. He gets checks from numerous transportation districts (including Trimet) and functions as their mouthpiece like every other special interestthink tank in America does. 

In this piece he compliments Trimet for thier 'groundbreaking' Powell proposal. 

As far as I am concerned the Powell/division project is another useless capital project benefitting property developers and construction contractors just like all the other Trimet capital projects. I don't see any benefits from this project at all for riders
