Developers drive development. Look at the South Waterfront in Portland-- it only really exists since developers wanted some towers like Vancouver.

And Pearl District? Developers.

Seattle's Belltown developments? Developers.

The city is what stops things from happening when the market is alive. Of course, when the market dies, nobody can turn dirt anyway.
