I am sure they want the units to come online around the time the park is going up and Harwood Park is still in the process. I doubt leasing of those units will go very well until there is a park going forward.
This makes a lot of sense if you believe Centurion plans on keeping the Statler and library as a long-term investment (and I hope they do). What's more likely to happen is that one or both pieces will be sold in the next couple of years, and then whether or not to build the apartments is up to the next owner.
It's why the developer should've built the apartment shell first and finish them out at a later time, like what was done with the Parkside condos facing Klyde Warren.
