That strikes me as an incredibly odd thing to say, although I could be missing the sarcasm due to being extremely tired. Not sure I've ever heard the word "vibrancy" to describe the current state of Lebreton Flats. There have been a few mediocre condos for about a decade now with hopefully some better stuff to come in the future. Prior to that it was a contaminated field with nothing going on for decades.

Not really the best example either. The current incarnation of Regent Park seems to be doing quite well but one of the the principles of the development was to avoid just tearing everything down en masse and replacing it with new. That's that's what originally happened and things didn't go so well (for lots of reasons). It's proceeding at a very manageable pace.
