Ask yourself: if you were an office worker commuting in from the mountain, Ancaster or Aldershot, and working all day, would you be satisfied locking your bike to a post? If you had a "really expensive bike" (a nice racing bike makes a lot of sense if your commute is over 10km and make $70K/year). This kind of facility does make a lot of sense in that case. Or even if you're coming in from the east end and want somewhere safe to leave your bike for a few hours while you meander around the shops, instead of bringing your bike from place to place.

This kind of facility makes a big difference for workplaces in cities like Vancouver.

The only drawback I can see is that most office buildings are south of King St., other than the City Centre, and thus all would be closer to the bike garage which already exists in the Jackson Square parking lot.
