Your guess is as good as mine.

IMO, they figure The Majestic would generate more money than the others, which means higher taxes, which means more money they will have to dish out. As for the location. It's not great that's for sure. But the South Side and Station Square wouldn't have been much better in my opinion. While I believe the Rooney's have a legitimate beef, they better watch what they say because they have been building up on the North Side themselves. I think it also helped that Mr. Berden happens to be a minority. Makes those in charge look good.

Just my opinion.
