If you look around the Stadiums on Pittsbugh's Northshore neighbourhood, you'll notice many of the empty lots have been infilled with Parking Garages with Street-front Retail, Condos/Lofts, New Businesses (JOBS)... All of which would never have been possible UNLESS the Brownfields were cleaned up.

So if North Enders were actually oposed to this stadium (which most aren't), then they could be denying their neighbourhoods the same spin-off effects as Pittsburgh.

(Keep in mind that Pittsburg's Downtown was surrounded by Steel Mills, not their 'east end'. So the fact that they have turned such an amazing corner, especially in Brownfield Cleanup & Job Creation along these clean lands, is just proof that Hamilton can too... IF We follow the lead of Cities like Pittsburgh rather than Mississauga, Burlington or Ajax!)
