Ah, I see.
Then chalk it up to the City allowing lane closures.

Pics by me today:



I think the orange squares mark the support columns that run down through the mall and the underground parkade.

I see they have made some of the steps into benches to encourage sitting.

Side note:
They are going to fill-in the loading zone on Georgia in front of the rotunda!
There's already no stopping in front of TD Tower for the buses.
