The problem with the land swap idea is that the city doesn't have a large inventory of inner city industrial/commercial land available to swap. IMO its a far better use of FF money to buy up sites, clean them up and sell at a small loss than to finance mega projects that cover only a small area of real estate. Basically what I'm suggesting is taking a site like Rheem and cleaning it up for sale and eating about $5M on the deal. This would allow the city to buy 10 sites for the proposed city cost of building a stadium there. With the Longwood site the city is getting 4 to 5 times the acreage developed for the same $45M.
