The official site calls for a 2014 opening, but...
I think they're still aiming to start construction early next year but I suppose that's all dependent on finalizing the TIF (now a smaller amount than before) and financing.

Well the parking is all underground. The second floor is actually retail, possibly TJ Maxx and Michaels (apparently they don't like or need windows?).

Completely I believe. The orientation of the remaining tower has changed and I don't think there is any space left for a second lobby/elevator core.
