The John/Charlton lot is private. Almost all of the people who park there are employees, mostly ones on the wait list. They pay more than those who have parking passes at the hospital. Yeah, that doesn't make sense.

The other lots you mention are private as well. They haven't been turned into parkades probably because it wasn't a good business venture for the landowners when land was cheap, and now that land is getting more expensive they might be looking at more lucrative land uses in the long term. That's speculation on my part, but I doubt any new parking garages would go up without public money, and I'm not sure where the public money would come from. Parking garages are crazy expensive to build.

Parking is now about $100 per month for those who can get it. I think about 2000 people work at the Charlton site.
