It appears that the drawings pre-date the decision to keep the west half of the Federal Building. It doesn't look like the footprint as shown in the drawing matches what's on site presently. Certainly that little laneway/drop-off thing off Main St. wouldn't fit in the space that's there presently.

I'm a bit disappointed in the treatment of Main St. It really looks like the plan is to face everything toward George St. I hope the building doesn't entirely turn it's back on Main St... then again, with the traffic there, the complete absence of any pedestrian environment on Main, why should developers treat Main St as anything other than the traffic sewer that it is? Pretty tragic that our main streets are relegated to utility corridors and nothing else.
