It's a bunch of thing: NO VISION being the first one.

Then, a bunch of lax zoning regulations that don't require anything substantial or attractive to be built in it's place. You can knock down Sanford and replace it with a stucco box that will be falling apart in 20 years.

Other cities have strict design guidelines, especially downtown. You think Shoppers Drug Mart, Sobeys or Canadian Tire are building those amazing looking urban stores in Toronto and Ottawa out of the goodness of their hearts?? No chance. Those cities demand excellence. We demand nothing....and as a result, we get crap.
