Plus the report says:
- That Phase 1 was to have 10,560 sq ft of commercial space in two one storey commerial building flanking the tower, but Jung did not build them due to market conditions (proably where the pth of grass is located in the rendering)
- That Concord reduced retail space from the podium of the Phase 2 towers from 16,400 to 15, 200 sq ft.
I don't think that Concord likes to build commercial space. That's the catch-22 of having a big residential developer in there - they'll build the residential, but that's about it. This certainly isn't worthy of being in a "downtown core" location and isn't much of a transit oriented retail/commercial node (how about a small 10 storey office tower?) They should have space for at least one or two anchors. Maybe they can expand out onto the [massive] plaza that's in front of the commcerial building in the future? But that would be unlikely if residential strata consent is required.
