Is it commonly accepted that city planners prefer subway entrances/exits to be inside buildings to save on sidewalk space? As a subway user, I generally prefer entrances outside of buildings and they're easier to find.

I would expect the restaurants and stores in the building to also not be open much after 5pm as they'll be servicing the tenants of the building not the occasional straggler en route to the subway.

I also don't know if this affects how the building interacts with the public school right behind it but that penned in playground always strikes me as somewhat dystopian.

What they've designed at the base works well. It's the tower that looks disjointed. That slab doesn't work with the existing curved building.
