I think Plastimet is superior to Longwood and offers some interesting trade-offs with West Harbour; poorer access to the water but fewer "neighbours", better arterial road access from the East/QEW, mountain accesses and Ferguson Avenue railtrail. Both sites have similar access to downtown and GO. As well, the City owns it.

Although Young HAS mentioned the "Burlington Street connection" he's probably stuck on the "visibilty" thing which I really don't believe has any traction. He seems to be equating a football stadium to a fruit stand or chip wagon where impulse buying rules the day. I've yet to meet anybody who, while driving along, squeals with delight and says "look there's a stadium, let's go to game".
