I believe somewhere in the design guidelines that planning staff go through for developments like this it is stated parking garage entrances should be located on the side street to avoid creating conflicts and traffic issues on the more important street. In this case Victoria is the side street and given the steep grade it likely couldn't be placed further back to avoid the intersection.

If they mean to keep the commercial space I can't really see anywhere else the driveway could be located.
