The demolition and restoration requires a "Major Historic Design Review" at the Historic Landmarks Commission. They'll be meeting the 19th about this.
On the surface, it sure looks like a slam-dunk, and hopefully there will be no complications.
(But then you have to wonder if The Brick restaurant and bar is also going get an update?)
As a footnote, it should also be noted that in the Hearing Notice, there are two historic photos. The reproduction in the Notice isn't very good, but one of them shows people biking downtown and again shows the mixed transportation ecosystem and lively sidewalks we used to have.
