These owners may be looking to just cash out, and we'll instead see building demolition for bigger projects.
...because the guys putting up all the big projects are the only ones who can afford to buy these places in the first place. And if rents continue to rise, even the better class of tenant will have a hard time justifying the rent.

I can't think of any other reason they would be locating utilities underneath a surface parking lot.

This is one of my favorite projects yo. We really need more office development. I'm getting hype for this to begin. Has this passed through the various loopholes that developments need to get through?
