Great news on this project! I recieved an email from one of the managers of emporis who has placed me in contact with one of the people on the engineering side, and we now have a bit clearer view of at least the floorcounts & some partners.
From the email...

Also of interest was the mention of a construction start in July of this year. We shall see...
