Thanks for the pictures shoeflack!  I dunno, from that last picture, at least to me it definitely looks too small of a lane to not hit the curb when going straight or turning.

I walked by here last night and the curb lines up pretty well with the curb to the north on the other side of Fort St.  These lanes have always been a bit tight so don't think it has changed much if any.  I also noticed that the center line as you approach the intersection from the south actual splits and there is a small painted median between the north and south bound lanes on the south side of Fort.  The City could borrow some of this space to shift the two north bound lanes a smidge to the West to make them wider if they wanted to.

 

This would create a slight jog in the alignment of the intersection but nowhere near as bad as Fort and Foul Bay for instance.  Besides, then the intersection would be Akimbo just like the building!

Like I said, they have built out the sidewalk to what previously existed. So the only thing different about the through lanes now than before construction will be some new pavement. Looks can certainly be deceiving.
