Obviously, it’s good to hear that the developer of the old Downtown Crossing Filene’s site may have Arnold Worldwide lined up as a future tenant and that it may mean the developer can now get crucial financing for the project.

But excuse us if we’re more than a little dubious about this.

How many times do we have to play Lucy With The Football on the Filene’s project, considering how many plans have been dashed in the past? Fyi: The public is Charlie Brown.
