Yes, it would be nice but vehicles DO need to be able to drive around too. King Street is already quite restricted for vehicles and as of 2022 The Esplanade will be similarly blocked-off to prevent through vehicular traffic and allow for the new bicycle lanes. There are plans (or hopes!) to improve Front Street between Market and Jarvis to make it more pedestrian friendly - better paving etc) but it will certainly not be vehicle free. (The recent closure of the Front Street median at Market Street is Phase 1 of this.)It would be nice if Front Street were made into a market square between Jarvis and Church. Then, you could just walk across some cobblestones between the two buildings without worrying about traffic. That would allow for large outdoor markets in front of the two buildings too (and west along Front Street).
