Actually, I just realized what's wrong with this "square". THERE ARE NO SEATS! Why the heck would they think anybody would hang out here without seats? People aren't a bunch of SIMS that just walk around in useless spaces. Some seats and tables here might actually attract some people, specially residents. But then again, that's probably what they're trying to avoid.
Though the 'plaza' was paid for by Section 37 funds from L-Tower it actually belongs to Sony/Meridian Centre. THEY should put seating out, of course.

I walked up there once or twice just for the novelty of it. There is literally no reason to ever be there, and you feel like you're in a space where you are not supposed to be in.

Meridian Hall is only interested in that square as a place for people to wander out during intermission of whatever show and have a drink while standing around talking with each other. These people would all have been sitting for about two hours, so generally they want to stand a chat for a bit.

Why the square gets closed though, who knows. Even with it having been "fixed up" by L Tower, the square may be too old to be under a POPS agreement with the City, and even as a City agency, it might be complicated to force them to open it more often.

Here is yet another example of the small things they got wrong when designing the L-Tower. Because they failed to get the levels right, they had to construct a large concrete platform and ramp at the Stage Door entrance to Meridian Centre so it allows wheeled access and is AODA compliant. They just installed the (permanent) metal railings so I assume the wooden one will soon go.

Just when I thought this building couldn't get any worse... Honestly.

So is this the BMU at the top of the L Tower that has failed? And why are the police so clueless when it comes to properly describing this stuff??
