I find that unlikely. Personally I am guessing it is at Front and Portland. Also Wealthsimple already have exposure though ads on Twitch, so clearly they identified this demographic as their target.

Front and Portland? Is that not the well?

I can however see them building it on the North Side where the car dealerships are there.

The lot where Toyota is is to small for a stadium. You need a lot the size of Coronation park to make it work. Look at the size comparison on google, there is not much room left downtown for a stadium. Even the Portlands are a tight fit.
If it is an e-sports stadium it will have a much smaller footprint. The one in Philadelphia gives you an idea:


Also:


It's like a few 10K sq. ft., seats what, 3.5K.

Jeez... as if Portland didn’t have enough traffic congestion as it is.

I find it hard to believe that this could make more money than a condo. So maybe the property owner is going for both. Expect this to be an imagining by an artist, not an architectural rendering.

The actual design will likely be a pair of condo towers in the lot from Front to Wellington with a 3000-4000 person venue in the podium.
