You have to hand it to city leaders and planners when it comes to delivering on promises of big things taking shape at Assembly Square.

The big Odysseo show opens this week, bringing world-class entertainment to town, and a few much welcomed jobs to go around during its run here as well.

News that a Legoland Discovery Center will be among the permanent attractions within that development has also stimulated a lot of positive response from locals and neighbors alike.

While it has taken a considerable bit of time for the final face of the project to take shape – and the process is still underway – we are beginning to see some great things taking place there. Yes, there have been some false starts and disappointing turnarounds in the past, but it is finally beginning to look like the city will have yet one more thing to be truly proud of in the years to come.

Kudos also to the city for arranging to have a certain number of Odysseo tickets available for low- middle-income residents who may otherwise not be able to afford the full cost of admission. This is a world-class act in itself.

We hope that Cavalia’s experience in our city will be as rewarding for them as it will likely be for us. And we look forward with great interest to watching the continuing progress of the Assembly Square development in action.
