Well, if Edmonton is that small of a market where someone doesn't want to pony up the vast majority of an over half-billion dollar development, scale it back down to what is reasonable and do what you can afford. This makes sense.

Don't expect to have the citizens automatically bend over and take it just because something is out of your pricerange, but you still want it as your legacy project. THAT makes zero sense.
