The latest info suggests they're "renovating" the Varelli's building, not demolishing it outright.
Honestly, I'm disappointed. I mean, the hotel does look better than the parkominium thingy, but I was really hoping for a redevelopment of the corner property too. The CDR submission's design strongly suggests they're not expecting to (even though the building would only occupy half of the zoning envelope).
