To be honest, I don't think so. When Vision was here previously, I was living either 2 blocks south on Peachtree, on Howell Mill, on Monroe, or at Tech, and I never knew any of my friends or colleagues to go there. They frequented Opera (1150), Twisted Taco, Sutra, Halo, etc., but I never really knew anyone in the area that went to Vision.
As far as livening up Midtown, I'm all for it. Personally, I'd just like to see it done responsibly a la Crescent. Smaller clubs and lounges plus a few more bars like the old Loca Luna and the Irish place (drawing a blank on the name) where Viewpoint is now would be great.
