Hey there, I haven't blocked you (I try not to live in an echo chamber made up of only those who agree with me) but I decided to not to reply to your previous post as you seemed to be certain of an unpredictable outcome. I appreciate your further info on building codes; I will likely look more into this as I find this kind of stuff interesting. You and I have no beef. I appreciate your contributions and perspectives on urban design/architecture.
With that said, I drove by again today to get a better idea of what is going on. It seems they have removed the darker bricks that were laying on top of the pavers and somehow (perhaps using an industrial router or tile saw?) cut out the pavers. It's not 100% certain, but I'm still betting the whole plaza will be at the same grade with the darker bricks.
