I linked to this on my blog entry this morning, but wanted to offer an easier route for people to check out Adirondack Life’s article about the Adirondack Club and Resort project in Tupper Lake and the Front Street development in North Creek.
Their article was written (completely independently — I had no idea they were working on a piece) by Albany Associated Press reporter Michael Hill.
“I think it’s going to be nicer than Lake Placid,” [developer Tom] Lawson said over the hubbub of skiers at the Big Tupper base lodge this winter. “I think it’s going to be the place to be.”
Opposition to the long-brewing mega-project has been as ﬁerce as the developers’ ambitions are grand. Critics fear the Adirondack Club could become a lasting liability for the very area it purports to save.
