Why dont they just build lots on all that vacant land surrounding the joint? Doesnt make any sense to me. $25M for a frikin "garage" in the desert? Why bother? Just grade & pave the desert. Like, is there a problem with snakes and spitting gila monsters or something?

They're everywhere and get into everything.

Killy.... Westgate is barely a quarter the size of its original plan. At full build-out all that land around it would have something built on it. All the other plots of land surrounding Westgate we also destined for development. So parking garages would definitely been required in the end.
