Now compare those costs to the much higher costs of doing the same things in the West Harbour

You mean much lower costs. The municipal infrastructure is already there, there are already 5-6000 parking spots within a ten minute walk, there's walking, cycling, transit (with LRT coming) and GO service to offset the number of cars, and already plenty of great restaurants and bars within walking distance so everyone isn't leaving at the same time.

Because the stadium is in the middle of an actual community instead of next to a giant parking lot, there's lots of opportunity for new businesses to spring up in the area to take advantage of thousands of happy people walking through a pleasant neighborhood instead of across a parking lot.
