They might very well do exactly that, it just hasn't been decided yet. I know the original offer by Hunt's people had some endzone seating (though I don't recall if it was one or both).
The Hunt group will meet with city officials soon (if they haven't already; it was supposed to be "mid-July"). From that...
A Fall report to a joint meeting of the Corporate Service and Economic Development and Planning and Environment committees will identify what is proposed by the Shenkman business plan/CFL proposal, including financial terms as well as any potential requests for development rights on the site, and [b]a recommendation to Council to accept or reject the proposal[/b]. A second report will seek direction from Council on whether to proceed with the Design Lansdowne competition, and in the event that Council wishes to proceed, propose modifications to the competition process based on the results of the public consultations.
If Council approves it, then we're off to the races, finally! If they don't, then we go back to this retarded competition deal and presumably the Hunt (or Shenkman, whatever name you want to use) Group prepares an official bid.
