The car wash is gone! Can the expansion be far behind?

While the Cubs are off in Arizona, other things are afoot around Wrigley. I stopped by the park Saturday morning to pick up new tickets for the rain-rescheduled Cards game, only to see a surprising sight: Bulldozers trashing the nearby car wash/bike check. What could this mean for the long-proposed Wrigley expansion?

As part of the Wrigley expansion project the Cubs were planning on adding a new building on the triangle-shaped parcel of land just to the west of the park, where the old car wash stood.

According to the Cubs, the expansion which would include "a five-story multipurpose building, to be located just west of Wrigley Field, with 400 parking spaces, a restaurant, a museum, and retail shops above ground, as well as underground workout facilities for Cubs players." But the construction stalled. With the demolition of the car wash, does it mean these plans are now moving forward? Does anyone have insider information?

I would be absolutely thrilled to see the Cubs upgrade the area right around the park to make the Wrigley experience even better, while improving the overall player facilities too. What do you all think about the expansion, and it moving forward? How many rooms in the new building will we need to display this year's World Series trophy? :)
