Rookwood Exchange update: “nothing at all happening”

According to Enquirer reporter Steve Kemme’s article in today paper, Rookwood Partners still has no plans to develop the 11-acre site at Edmondson and Edwards roads until their case with Joe Horney, the last hold-on, is settled. "Nothing at all is happening," said Tracy Nemenz, director of marketing for developer Jeffrey R. Anderson Real Estate, which formed Rookwood Partners with the Miller-Valentine Group. Joe Horney’s building is the last one standing on a parcel where the weeds and grass are high again, residents living nearby continue to complain, and everyone waits, and waits, and waits some more for resolution. Is it too late to plant corn there and sell it, as one resident suggested?
