Crowbar - sounds great! Have a great time discovering the area. Dsahota makes a great point above - probably the most 'run down' or less valued homes in the area are the ones closest to the old factories and empty buildings of the stadium site.

The marshalling yard is a bit of a pain, but having lived in Portland and been to Vancouver and of course, Toronto with it's a huge marshalling yard right next to the Skydome and new condo district, I don't think it's too much of a problem. That home I mentioned, listed at $725,000 on Crooks St is literally on a cliffside overlooking the marshalling yard.

Be sure to head up Bay St to Bayfront Park and Pier 4/8 as well as on James North. You'll notice on Cannon and York how close the stadium site is just beyond Central Park.

And please find some time to head up to the now defunct East Mountain proposal and check it out. The ONLY thing it can trump the west harbour with is highway access, but they'll be a jammed mess if a stadium and 100 acre box centre were to go there. The piece of land in question is in between the highway off ramp called 'Stonechurch' and the Leons store.
