One important difference with what Vancouver did for the Olympics, however, is that most of the facilities were destined to be multi-use and public after the games - community centers, public rinks, etc. - the Richmond Oval being the most obvious example.

By comparison, Hamilton's stadium in particular is a single-use facility whose post-Pan Am profits will benefit a single, private company almost exclusively. Moreover, both the (proposed) velodrome and stadium are located in relatively peripheral areas. The public "legacy" potential for these facilities is dubious at best.
