Why aren't they planning on spanning the IC tracks again? Is it the cost? It just seems like drilling caissons between the tracks and bridging them shouldn't be exponentially more expensive than a normal building construction. What am I missing?

I think that master plan rendering is older; it's from May, and I thought the developer had released better renderings much more recently

They said in articles this week that for phase 2 they'll have the option to buy the air rights over the tracks, either to build over them or transfer the FAR to build taller buildings east of the tracks.

I apologize if this has been answered before, but is the plan to eventually build on the McCormick marshalling yards? Aren't they needed for exhibition set up and logistics? Or will the developments simply build over them?
