They want the buildings around the circus to be curl round and focus onto the obelisk. On this basis, there is no chance of the site being used as a public open space, even if this was financially possible.
Umm, yes. As I understand it, for an area to be called a circus, buildings fronting onto it have to be curved otherwise in this case, it would have to change its name to St George's Square, or something.
But that it just for buildings - surely anything that surrounds a circus and faces inwards could be curved, such as a fence, lawn, flower bed, benches, path ... And they'd be cheaper...
