did anyone really think the city would actually have a cohesive vision for any west harbour changes when they are seemingly incapable of making straightforward, evidenced-based decisions for even fairly minor projects?

i think it is fairly clear that the sudden interest in this "redevelopment" is being spurred by the city seeing dollar signs from selling valuable land to developers. money that the city desperately needs because despite going through this magical "renaissance" city officials can't stop gloating about, the city seemingly has not been able to translate this into sustainable revenue as infrastructure deficits grow year to year. by taking the path of least resistance the city is able to raise a significant amount of capital in a short amount of time to patch up some ongoing problems temporarily.
