Good or Bad?

Over at South St. Louis Talk, there's a post about making Ballpark Village a sort of "Taste of St. Louis" experience. There's some appeal to that idea, but on the other hand, we might regret exposing the outside world to how bad St. Louis-style pizza really is...

There's talk of building a high-dollar, touristy, aquarium attraction, like the one in the picture above. That could be an awesome addition to the St. Louis destination downtown experience.

If you're aiming to create a sustainable, ballpark-anchored district, how would you approach it? Emphasize a ballpark/themed entertainment focus? Or just keep it simple and urban: high density and mixed use, with baseball a part of but not the central focus of the mix?
