You're still not getting what I'm saying. I'm saying you're thinking too small by focusing on one shopping center.
The opportunities are 100x greater to look beyond the functionally tiny area of 46th Ter to Ward Parkway and Main to Jefferson. Here's a map

It's quite a bit smaller than many think it is. There's zero hotels actually on the plaza, for example (they show two for positioning) to go back to your point on hotel guests
We need to expand the walkable retail areas of midtown and the country club district, not limit our amenities to one small area because it has the name everyone likes.
Why is there such a push to mess with this shopping district when we could put the same things a few blocks away off the plaza?
Would a CVS three blocks from the plaza t 45th and Belleview really be a horrible place to go?
Is the mixed use project at 51st/Main, 0.5 miles from the plaza, so far away that it can't work as a neighborhood amenity?
Is the library at 49th/Main so far from the plaza that someone at 45th and Penn can't walk there?
We need to think of the greater area and connect neighborhoods to amenities much more directly than them needing to go to the plaza. There's nothing wrong with a shop not being within 3 blocks of Broadway and Nichold Rd. It's not in the wrong place because it's not next to the apple store.
I'm saying we need to spread these amenities out more so they're actually in the residential neighborhoods. We need bike lanes TO the plaza, not just on it
We don't need to upend the purpose of the plaza to open neighborhood amenities.
