Finally, there’s her whole idea of Real Estate Philanthropy. I’m hoping the writers are going to at least keep this a plot point, touching on just how involved this venture is (not only buying property, but inspections, repairs and renovations to bring buildings up to code, which would be a tremendous loss leader, plus taxes and insurance, as well as expenses of normal upkeep and the desire to keep rents affordable). After all, without a sufficient amount of income, no fortune is inexhaustible, and I’m thinking it’d be desirable for her real estate ventures to be self-sustaining.
Admittedly, all of this would be diving into the issues of affordable housing, deferred maintenance, and profiteering … which I suspect falls outside the showrunner’s intent for the show, but it is something where I wish it would be touched on, and maybe an episode spent dealing with it as Kate Kane becomes a rising force in Gotham real estate.
Oh, did they actually mention that Kate Kane was the named heir to the Wayne Fortune, or would this enterprise be handled in Bruce Wayne’s name.
the G-man Himself
Let me strive every moment of my life to make myself better and better, to the best of my ability, so that all may profit by it.
Let me think of the right and lend my assistance to all who may need it, with no regard for anything but justice.
Let me take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage.
Let me be considerate of my country, of my fellow citizens, and my associates in everything I say and do.
Let me do right to all, and wrong no man. -- Doc Savage
