Hey Lawrence et al - It's about more than footprint. I don't have any special knowledge but reading John Kernahan's report on Dutch Velodromes points out a significant barrier to re-use of any of our old industrial buildings - a clear interior. The Pan Am requirements are that there be NO support pillars (presumably to ensure completely unubstructed views) in the interior of the velodrome - Kernahan mentions how the games committee forced another velodrome to abandon their original design for that very reason. We MAY have industrial sheds that large in Hamilton, but I kind of doubt it.
