During a 152-game career with the Calgary Stampeders, Jon Cornish racked up some impressive accomplishments, including 7,401 rushing yards, a pair of Grey Cup rings, three Most Outstanding Canadian baubles in a row and a touchstone Most Outstanding Player nod.

Yet it could also spell the end of McMahon Stadium, one of Calgary's most hallowed landmarks, and create a development opportunity that many experts say is rare in a city this size.

"It's an interesting situation because it doesn't happen often that you have a large piece of land in the inner city ready to be developed," said Bryan Romanesky, a former city planner and CEO of City Trend, a planning and permit firm.
