These things don't spring up over night. They are completing the project in phases. The plan right now is to have people living and eating at the Banks by the end of 2009, which might be a little optimistic but nonetheless I hope GABP isn't obsolete by then. From what I've read the whole project won't be completely finished until around 2017.
And from the way West Chester is building, they won't have a single acre available for construction in a few years...
