Why Did They Build It?

I still can't figure out why they built it where they built it in the first place.

The Skywalk was constructed in a remote part of the Grand Canyon. People have to either fly in or drive on terrible roads to get there. And, when they do arrive, much of the promised infrastructure at the site has been either unfinished or left in a state of disrepair. Couple that with the fact that this structure extends out over the rim of the canyon and you have to ask yourself one question.

If all of the other aspects of building the Skywalk have been done by shady contractors who didn't get all of the requisite land rights squared away up front and by greedy developers, how safe could it possibly be?
