Jay, in response to your question #3, I just read Ken Robinson's Walking Home book in which has a section focusing on the problems of "entertainment districts" as a solution to urban re-development. The problem is that nobody wants to live in such areas due to loud, late nights, so the neighbourhood economy becomes unbalanced. Better to have a mix of housing, commercial, and employment uses for long-term sustainability.

As a footnote, I once visited the entertainment district (mall) created in Flint, Michigan, and it was totally depressing.
