Walking by on the Centennial Parkade side this morning one gets a pretty impressive view of the tower with nothing (even a short podium) in the way.
If it was empty land, or say a very lightly developed couryard (say, you know, you could put up a large tent 10 days a year in, and have other smaller stuff going on the rest of the time...) I wouldn't be too opposed to that. You'd have Olympic Plaza anchoring at one end, this new Courtyard at the other anchoring Stephen Ave.
If it's 11 years, 12 years, or never for phase 2, they can take that rebar they just put above grade, add it to the top of phase 1, leave the courtyard and call it a day. If only I could find the parallel universe this is happening in...
