I'm sorry, but downtown isn't an amusement park. It's a neighbourhood. The heart of the city. Bring in 10,000 new residents and some big name retailers as mentioned above and we'll be on our way. If someone from the Meadowlands or Mountain never comes downtown again it doesn't matter. Successful cities are 24-7 cities, not 9-5 cities. We waste so much time in this city begging suburbanites to "please give us a chance". I echo Ryan's sentiment - who cares? The young generation wants to live downtown and lately have been snapping up lofts, condos and homes with a vengeance. Thousands of more quality housing units are what we need. Not theme park promises and free parking.
