While I do agree with this, the lot size isn't big enough for the CCH.
I would really hate to see a combined lot running from 115 South to 200 South hosting the CCH. That size would be big enough but it would also mean a very short CCH. It may also cause problems for accessing the Benihana/Blue Iguana with only the entry along 2nd South, it would become forgotten quickly
I would rather them leave the buildings on 1st South and build over Kilowatt park. That is roughly 1/2 the block length if not just over. Allow parking to be accessed from parking ramps on West Temple (similar to CCC). This could allow for a landscaped median and an upgraded midblock crossing.
They could put the parking under the APS land and the current open space. Killowatt park can be built over with supports going down so it wouldn't need to be excavated (possibly saving relocation costs), just provide access to the equipment from behind the CCH or via the underground parking structure and create a N/S walkway behind the CCH through to the Zion Parking lot where it could be continued to the current midblock crossing on 1st South.
