Show 'em what they've won!

Will interested residents and visitors to the WTC site be awarded the hotel, the hotel with the jazz-taurant, the hotel with the daily fake Mardi Gras parade, the hotel with ferris wheel, or the monorail and "iconic" tower package with probably more hotels and condos nearby?  OR will they take their chances with whatever was behind the giant red question mark? 

All will be revealed Tuesday!
After years of failed attempts to redevelop the run down city-owned high rise at the foot of Canal Street, a five-member selection committee is scheduled to meet today to make a recommendation on the fate of the former World Trade Center building.

The committee, appointed by Mayor Mitch Landrieu, is expected to choose one of three proposals, two of which call for turning the vacant building into a hotel and apartments and one that pushes for its demolition and replacement with a public park.
