Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't that result in your housing not being connected to the road network, and thus making ineligible to contribute workers?
Even so, is there really a need for the inner road to be physically disconnected? Don't roadblocks do the job pretty well? Or is there something that I'm missing?

You could play with the desirability a bit by flipping the 2x2 buildings around or moving the agora down 2 spaces. You could also drop the gym to the bottom and move the 2x2s up. If I knew the desirability of the different buildings I might be able to order them better. The big problem is the infirmary. It might be better off in the top row against the boulevard than on the bottom against the avenue.
Desirability plays differently on Olympian vs. Hero so I'll try them both.

A blocked road is what I'm using in Jason Episode 1, as I cannot build gardens yet. It works fine that way, but I'm just so excited that I can build a truly concentric block that I'll change it when I can.
The block does not demand competitors anyways so they are redundant for worker housing. Only a small portion of the houses would get them anyway (2 or 3).
I'm going to stick my stadium in my disconnected elite housing block so they wouldn't produce competitors anyways. I managed to get it working with 14 estates yesterday in a test.

I had a test block about 30 tiles from a granary and it worked fine. It does have to be well-stocked if you have a lot of blocks being serviced by it. I tend to place my palace complex/distribution centre in the 'centre' of my housing blocks. Don't know quite what you mean about the theatre though?
