The Aerotropolis sounds like an obvious idea - to drop developments around a small cargo-oriented airstrip.

Which means it's been tried somewhere before.

And yet nobody's saying "this worked in X, Y, an Z, and it will work here too".

Yeah, that doesn't inspire confidence. Nor does the fact that Westjet is gradually abandoning this facility, and the highway that was supposed to go through the area has similarly been cancelled.

Even if the Aerotropolis was a good idea when it started, it sure isn't now. What's going to end up there is a lot of vacant land that the HHHBA will be happy to offer to take off the city's hands for more housing sprawl.
