I don't want to sound like a naysayer because I've been really supportive of this project and the York streetscape, BUT I am a little worried that if they don't open up the market to the street and actually have some stalls or cafes out there that we might end up with a nice glass box on a completely dead street.

I wish they'd have gotten rid of the ramp in the market on the north wall and instead made 2 floors with one being streetlevel and opening up via the glass wall.

Unless I'm missing something in the drawings, it seems to me that a long glassed in hallway will separate the market from the street.
Stalls, vendors, buskers and cafe patios would help animate the street, so hopefully that will happen.
