Noting the size of the project, Stephanie Irvine showed a map of the future Compass Business Park and said laid on top of a map of Joliet it would stretch from the Slammers baseball stadium downtown to Joliet Junior College on Houbolt Road.
"This is absolutely huge when you look at it," Irvine told the audience.
The entire project could someday stretch from Joliet to Manhattan to Elwood.
Irvine said there are weak points in the NorthPoint plan.
The developer does not have the contiguous land it needs to annex into Manhattan, she said. Even the land NorthPoint plans to annex into Joliet is questionable, she said.
"They don't own it all," she said. "It does not mean it's a done deal just because they own a few parcels and have options on the rest."
