Personally I'd like the velodrome to be well-integrated into the neighbourhood, wherever that is, with features such as an attractive streetscape, integrated mixed use retail (Heck, maybe even have a gym as one of your retail establishments.), cheap office/meeting space for use by community recreation organizations, and additional complimentary recreational land uses nearby (maybe a skate park, connection to cycling/hiking trails, etc.), soccer fields, lawn bowling, etc.

Ideally it would be not just a centre for cycling, but the start of a cross-recreational precinct, where you can try your hand at just about any sport to encourage activity in everyone from youth to seniors. Something with such a broad appeal should be able to get a variety of stakeholders on board.
