Yep it was Wang's dream

When he bought Isles he always viewed them as a piece of bigger puzzle

He wanted to create something special there (And very profitable for him)

If it would have been anywhere else (Chi/Pit/Etc) the city and its leaders would have praised him and put his project on fast track

Town of Hempstead on other hand refused to allow any of it
