It doesn't necessarily have to be all or nothing for the tennis courts. There are 14. Removal of just the 4 on 47th st would open a fair amount of land for redevelopment.

That would be a reasonable compromise but a waste of space still for such a prime spot - and once realized could become more complicated to redevelop the rest. Think big then reduce what can't be realistically accomplished...

* Any neighborhoody/streetcar stop friendly retail that Plaza owners apparently don't want to touch - upscale CVS and/or Market3 small counter eats/coffee joint/basics, local counter eats, drycleaner, etc.
* Some form of a park plaza with lots of seating, fountain(s) facing actual streetcar stop.
* MainCor 'safezone' office/security with public restrooms, ATM, etc. perhaps staffed during streetcar hours. Or even better...
* KCPD Midtown/Plaza pedestrian/bike patrol unit? Just thinking big. Should reduce troublemakers for what will become a key touristy hotspot.
* Next Floor (or two) - Plaza Library
* Top Floor - Indoor tennis courts/sports (or on rooftop)

Anything TOD related would be better than surface courts using up space that will clearly become a major hotspot. But to Grid/Highander's point, a full blown transit center that tends to attract congregating vagrants might not work, buses should pass through a nearby stop rather than layover. Maybe just call it Plaza Streetcar Center.

I pray for the day that the Plaza has a Burlington Coat Factory.

I love Burlington, but it would bring in the wrong purely ghetto element.
It will never, ever happen.
