What makes sense to me in their answer is leaving open space on collector street side to blend in better with other setbacks and provide a buffer to the new taller building. Also, while open space would normally be better on the south, the neighboring 3-story bldg negates that.

What doesn't make sense is the office entrance. IMO, they placed it in the 3rd best location. I think east is best, not only because of parking access, but also to maximize retail storefront on streets. West would be the worst entrance location.

Case study
Staff location in your solution places most of plaza in shade and crowds pedestrian access.
I have no idea what hotspot refers to because nothing in the write-up mentions services.
