Stadium FAIL

One of the great mysteries to me is why the stadium complex developers have so far been uninterested in putting anything but stadiums and acres of parking lot there. It's a shame that the baseball stadium wasn't put somewhere closer to center city, though I understand the difficulties/resistance to doing that. But it's still puzzling to me that there hasn't been any interest in trying to develop the strip between the subway station and the stadiums or put anything there at all. There's talk that some sort outdoor mall type complex might go in once they knock down the old hockey arena, but just developing along the street grid would make more sense.

Such a lost opportunity to create a lively area/attraction.
