Can anyone give me any specific insight as to why Disney is so good at renovating attractions and areas, yet pleasure island has been an awkward kind of ghost town ever since it closed.  I've been there now 4 times over the last 12 years and I just don't understand why they do the bare minimum or nothing at all to address it.

Whatever happened to Pleasure island being transformed into Hyperion Wharf? What happened to that project?
