“Every investment in beauty yields an economic payoff”

“There is no excuse for anything to ever be built that does not add to the beauty of a city.  Every investment in beauty yields an economic payoff. If you build beautiful places — whether they are parks, parking garages, or public housing — the land next to these places becomes more successful. They become catalytic agents to generate economic activity.”
–Mayor Riley, Charleston SC
