I present a personal summary of the first ARENA conference on the prospects of building large astronomical infrastructures at the Concordia station in Antarctica, and my view on our progress to date in achieving this goal. In particular, I discuss the basic scientific, technical, and political conditions which I believe must be satisfied in order to develop a world-class international astronomical facility at Concordia.
