I certainly have no problem with developing on parking lots, but I'm going to guess that King/Spadina has rapid transit options and neighbouring amenities that King/Bay (or Wilson/John) does not, which encourages the kind of development that can do without parking.

Incidentally, it's not merely a matter of thinking of downtown as a place that suburbanites might or might not visit. I'm going to wager that it's a place where most of its white collar workforce does not live downtown (Queen to Wellington, Hunter to Barton), which raises the question: What does it take to convince them to move downtown? Something approximating an upmarket urban experience, in all likelihood, which is something that ideally doesn't rise or fall on massive infusions of public capital.
