That surprised me too. They reconfigured that whole loading entrance. The tunnel to under the Civic Centre used to run East out of the building. TV production could/would park some vehicles inside the building and have the rest parked up the ramp. Now the ramp down to the tunnel is 90-degrees to the entrance as seen from the way the refrigerated trailer is parked.
Given that the cameras and broadcast personnel are mostly located on the South side, perhaps the trailer parking we saw last week is a temporary solution until the landscaping and such is completed on the south side.
I read somewhere on SSP that TSN was consulted during the design phase of TD Place, so either way, I'm sure it's not an issue.
