Because it's a lot more dangerous and more likely to cause a building collapse by digging an underground parking lot under a location while it's still standing safely. That is if it's even possible to dig under the building to make said lot safely. It is a big building.

If you had watched the demo, you wouldn't have many doubts as to it's structural integrity, and it suddenly collapsing. However, that's no engineers assessment, which Vancor was required to provide to allow a partial demolition to occur instead of the full demolition that the they originally had with the city.

So pretty much the gripe at this point becomes "Vancor should have to put up a sheet a plastic up on the side of the building, to protect the interior that they are going to gut anyways."
