Here's my problem, why is street parking on Church a requirement? Especially in the area occupied by Ryerson? It's not a major retail district like Queen West, plus there's parking on side streets and in parking lots in the area. Yonge to me makes sense for pedestrians, because that's the majority of the people who use it (at least between College and Queen, which is the area we should pedestrianise). I can see the argument for Yonge having bike lanes, but at the same time, running a bike path down the centre of Yonge, where cyclists are not going to want to stop to let pedestrians cross is counterproductive to a successful pedestrian street. Just look at Spadina and Queens Quay, I was there every weekend this summer, and cyclists basically never stop to let pedestrians cross the cycle path between the street and the sidewalk, because unlike cars at that intersection, there is no stop light for bikes. You just have to run across when theres a gap, not ideal for what would be a busy pedestrian boulevard full of tourists.
