Barton/Tiffany will sit empty for the rest of our lives if we honestly expect some Toronto condo builders to come along and redevelop it. They won't. a well-designed stadium can become a catalyst for well-designed condos. See PNC Park in San Fran and the new stadium in downtown San Diego.

To call Barton/Tiffany an established residential neighbourhood is a stretch as well. It's empty, former industrial land with a smattering of a handful of homes. It's the best possible urban location without damaging full-functioning neighbourhoods downtown.

But what does Richard Florida know anyhow?? Clearly this stadium belongs beside a rinky-dink airport in the middle of nowhere. That'll change Hamilton's image and cause massive spinoffs.
