I hear Tony Sleiman will have some cash soon - I'm sure he can turn this into a gold mine!

With a 7-11 and a nail salon.

Well at least those two would still be open in a year unlike an apple store or traders joe.  I still say you need to hold out for a whole foods or nothing.

Stock the pond with fish... call it "The ol Cowford fishin hole"  The surrounding businesses could be the country store, olde tyme photography, a bbq joint, and a saloon.  Throw in a Waffle House...
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

I think the  Starbucks Waffle house and BW3's are all good ideas that would survive, especially with the new housing and a few more hotels in the area.

While the City has put the screws to the Landing and the Friends of Hemming Park, they never looked into Unity Plaza... 

The developer signed a development agreement accepting City money for in exchange for running the Unity Plaza event space.  Does the entity that signed the development agreement even exist anymore?  Who knows - the apartments were sold off to another owner as soon as they were done. 

Would the new owner be legally required to maintain that commitment?

The city money is long gone. It is easy for a business to fold and take money with it.

They would have to clean all the trash out of it first.
