I don't doubt that a mixed-use waterfront development would be successful here. As I suggested, it's a concept that has already progressed a fair way through the HWT pipeline. What I wonder about is the six months of the year when the waterfront can muster single-digit temperatures at best. That won't impact residences or offices, but it could diminish the appeal of heading out to shop or dine. This may be a baseless concern, and I'll concede that I know nothing of Halloween-to-Victoria Day foot traffic in watefront promenades in Halifax or Boston. Private sector investors will obviously be more thorough when it comes to their homework.
