Calgary tried this with 8th Avenue SW and it didn't work very well. The street became a ghost-town and people actively avoided the street, with the exception of during lunch hour. They eventually opened up the street to a very small amount of one-way traffic during select hours and that helped bring people back to the street, as cabs and purposeful traffic could access the businesses there.

I'm not saying the pedestrian only idea couldn't work, but for it to be the 'best answer' you'd have to build an awful lot of condos.
