RenWatcher, I too wondered about that, but then took a look at their design panels;

You'll see a rendering 'photo' taken from James and King on the Gore Park side looking NW towards Jackson Square and the LRT station. The station looks like it will be about 25 steps to Gore Park which seems suitable to me. The Walnut station is one block from the Crowne Plaza and 3 blocks to the Connaught. I wondered if a station on the SE corner of King and James would be better, but that probably doesn't make sense with the MTT.

I have an idea I'm looking at suggesting to the rapid transit team that could still see a Walnut station in IV but also allow one lane of westbound vehicle traffic to continue along King past the station.
