Jason, why are you so attached to a "civic space" that went essentially unused for 50 years. Why would that usage level change all of a sudden? THe answqer is, it won't.

There is plenty of opportunity for public space at city centre:

gore park, for one. King william can be fully pedestrianized and would be right at the entrance of "city hall" if it were moved there. And the parking lot at king william/james could be square-ified

Look beyond the as-is status of that corner and see what it could be - a civic space that is actually USED.

ANd stop thinking of city centre as a mall. It is barely a mall now - remove the escalators and change the railings to windows and you'd never recognize it as a mall again. And these are minor upgrades. THe potential goes way beyond such simple changes.
