Sheesh.....talk about a bunch of Negative Nellies........
I think this is a great idea.
They can easily make this area another trolley route. It is also right next to the cruise ship area-relatively easy to widen the road if needed.
Gives the cruisers another choice so takes the pressure off Palm and Eagle.
Provides a ton of construction jobs so enforcing building limits in other areas will not result in a bunch of unemployed construction workers.
They can certainly shape the beach there and screen off the direct line of sight so people on the beach do not just stare at the ass end of the cruise ships.
I believe someone (ahem) mentioned a "Playa Aruba" idea a while back. Hey Eddy please feel free to market this name for the beach. I promise to cut you in if it flies.

Not trying to be very negative, but have lived through years of construction 'inactivity'.
Took years to build the first building of Divi Village, but look at it now.
Took years to complete the timeshares that are now near the Seaport Mall...was first called Harbourtown.
Is that shell of a building near the high-rise mall finally nearing completion or open (the Aqua?).

I think it is a good idea, but probably out of our time-frame for completion.
