Stuart Street would've been held up with the OMB for a decade. Look at the Setting Sail Plan as an example.
It didn't have to be the West Harbour... just building at the current location is ridiculous. Look was IWS did for that area... amazing isn't it? (sarcasm).
The proposed LRT will stop right in front of the stadium... oh, not it wont.
At least the GO train will get people from outside of Hamilton to easily commute to the game - oh, that's right - the GO train won't even be close to it.
It's even a crappy for those who want the driveway-to-driveway experience.
This new stadium can be used for summer concerts... fantastic! Oh, it's in the middle of a scummy residential area - so much for that.
Yeah, building at the current site is a great idea. It does soooo much for this city.
I'm not stepping foot inside the new stadium in that location, and the same goes for many people I know. They don't go there now, why would they with a new stadium?
