Walked by the Sears building this morning, looks like demo work has started on the interior.

So they're keeping the surface lot?  I thought they would replace it with a garage

From what it seems like it will be in the next phase. They have enough surface parking to forestall construction of one. My guess is that they want to put another building where the existing parking lot right next to the building.

I've been musing as to whether a "Gateway" style project, as is being discussed over the Metro TMC transit center, could work at the Wheeler Transit Center nearby to this along with the vacant lots to the south of I-69 abutting the lightrail tracks.  I reckon it'll take completion of a number of other structures after the Ion to promote the kind of density needed to justify such a structure.
