Schoen couldn't agree more. But, he figures, that momentum toward a cleared-out, revamped, upscaled riverfront has a dark underside for those not invited to the celebration. Schoen says he's not blessed with the resources, or the patience they can buy, of some of his larger riverfront neighbors: He owns a building the city won't buy and is crippling his ability to sell; because of that, he now stands a good chance of losing his property to the bank. Call it attrition. Schoen, with resignation in his voice, calls it a shame: "Time--and money--is not on my side."
