"A lot of people do live here in the neighborhood," he said. "I don't want to turn Grant Park into Navy Pier, where people come down to party all the time."
You could hear the "but" in this guy's speach long before he said it.

Bridge to Art Museum = Ferris Wheel?
He was constantly reminded of how startlingly different a place the world was when viewed from a point only three feet to the left.
