Just let us get used to relating with the water. Do something temporary with the sheds for the Rugby World Cup party central and for a year or two just let the wharf be a market every weekend. Define Queens wharf as a people place before we clog it up with ill conceived buildings.
We have waited a hundred years to get it back - we can wait a bit longer and just enjoy it as an open space.
The CBD needs a market
Here is the place
I am sure the Paris City Council would give us free advice on how to handle shifting outdoor markets
I believe some of them know our waterfront quite well!
