The beautiful thing about an East Mountain wheat-field site is that it opens up all sorts of other farmland for development.

This development can be "green", with high-density, low-rise housing for lower-income people, plentiful transit access, parks and vegetable gardens everywhere. It can have a train station, a hospital, schools, maybe even a mall with a library, theatres and a Farmer's Market. We can build it all to conform to strict heritage building codes, encourage multiculturalism and even attempt to engender a thriving arts community.

See where I'm going with this?

Anyone wanna venture a guess on the price-tag needed (publicly and/or privately) to rebuild all the amenities available within a 20 minute walk of the West Harbour site? Billions. At least.
