Frank Clair Stadium is similar to the West Harbour proposal as in it is close to a body of water (i.e the Rideau Canal), except in this case it is physically seperated from the body of water only by the Queen Elizabeth Driveway instead of a CN freight yard. It is a rehabilitation of an existing century-old stadium directly on Bank Street, which is Ottawa's main commercial avenue; it is in an established toney neighbourhood with an healthy commercial environment already in existence; it is one kilometre to the Queensway (Highway 417) with a direct express link to it via the aforementioned Queen Elizabeth Driveway; it is about two km from the downtown core of Bank and Somerset; it has twice seen a CFL franchise go bankrupt trying to operate from the site, and currently does not play host to any CFL team. Other than all that, it is a proposal practically identical to the West Harbour.
