Yeah that area might work and help to keep costs down. I think Dartmouth Crossing developers wanted to turn some of that area into residential, however if you built a stadium right next to their retail area I'm sure that would be a benefit for DC. It would be like Scotiabank Place up in Ottawa which is located outside in Kanata near a retail development.
