What's Being Built at 1521 S. Wabash?

Do you know what is happening with the digging in the lot next to 1521 s wabash? It had been used as a parking lot but now they seem to be building more structure under the ground...
We're pretty sure this was a parking lot being used by Old St. Mary's church, but not sure what the plan is for it now.  Does anyone have the scoop?

I think Old St. Mary's is just fixing their parking lot.

Nothing is permitted for that space, so Mr. F is probably right.

It is indeed going to be an improved parking lot for Old St Mary's. It used to be an overflow lot for the church. They build the new school on their main lot so now they are making this area part of their main parking with access from Wabash.
