The city owns the land and gearing up to sell it. Like any subdivider/land speculator, they're being conservative and thinking mainly about what will maximize value for the person(s) or entity(s) that might be interested in bidding for the land. Sadly, that means that using prime waterfront lands we collectively own to do something innovative is not the main intention here. Yes we are missing an opportunity. Maybe not a car-free neighbourhood. But something that incorporates more than just private-sector condo development. Part of that might be to invert the priority typically given to automobility. The dutch still have cars, they just don't design their cities to prioritize their use.
