Because the existing buildings have uneven floors, are structurally difficult to work with because of their long length, and Blanchard has had incredible difficulty finding tenants to house them and the existing facade, doesn't exactly scream grocery store.

I'm would assume they would open the parking garage on King, given that is now a pedestrian zone, I think that would be incredibly stupid to do. Even if it was converted back into a roadway because that section of King is just so narrow. This parking garage would open up onto James or Main.

One of the articles states using the Bank of Nova Scotia as a (Pedestrian?) entrance to the Grocery store, which makes sense given it's massive interior. Then use the James/Main St Parking plaza for shoppers to access the store, and run underground parking for the Condo Unit, which is another reason to demolish the existing buildings, to make room for underground parking.

That all being said, there is a great deal of speculation in there.
