Dude, Where's My Car? Sloop Edition!

A strange development for a parker in the Sloop:
Dear Sloopin, 
I am a devoted reader and South Loop resident. I am writing to find out whether you know anything about what is happening with the parking lot at 14th & Michigan (south of Giodano's). I rent a monthly spot there but yesterday I noticed that all the cars in the lot -- including mine -- were gone and the lot is locked up with no attendant anywhere. The lot is totally empty! Where are all the cars? The attendants have keys to the monthly parkers' cars because they move them around when there are special events. At least one attendant has my phone number, but no one called me about this. Do you think you can find out what is going on, or perhaps find out contact information for the management company? I have always just dealt with them in person, so I don't know who to call. There are no signs up at the lot. 
Thanks for anything you can do!
Naturally the first thing that pops to mind is that this space is eventually going to be the Lakeside Bank headquarters.  Maybe they're starting that?  It does seem strange that there was no warning though.

Has anyone else had a similar issue?
