It also seems like they have an opportunity to move the garage's entrance closer to Laura Street, and expand the retail if they wanted to.

That probably depends on maintaining a proper slope on the ramps.  Moving the entrance closer to Laura would likely require re-engineering the entire structure.  Which is not to say it shouldn't be considered.

The ramps are on the backside. The front looks to be flat.

Anyone know where this stands? I'm surprised (or maybe not) this hasn't broken ground

^It's imminent.

Nothing to be concerned about, purely logistics (the Trio is still being used for staging for the completion of the Barnett).

Should go up fast once it's started, as both the Barnett and Vystar are depending on it.

HOw quickly can a ramp this size go up these days?  Is a lot of the work prestressed ( ? ) concrete pieces that are built off-site  just trucked in and put together on-site?

Smaller parking ramps these days, once the site is prepared, seem to take maybe a week or so to do.  I'm not sure how that scales.

My company just put in a 4 story 800 space garage in 4 months. I'd imagine just a couple months longer if there's retail on the bottom. As you said it's all pre cast off site and just Lego blocked together.
