Willow Creek Community Church Taking Over Entire Property of 1319-1347 S State Street?

A reader sent us a link (via Willow Creeks website):
Willow Chicago has been searching for a permanent home for a number of years. While we have enjoyed hosting services in the Auditorium Theatre, the cost and the limitations are hindering us as a church community. After years of searching for a permanent home, God has answered our prayer with the property at 1319-1347 S State Street.
You can read more about their plans on their website, but judging by this rendering it seems like they're taking the whole building over:

Congrats to them, but curious what's happening to the rest of the businesses in the building.  We know Rainforest Learning Center had a pretty big space in the middle, so wonder if they're relocating or what.  Anyone have the scoop?

It looks like their "Worship Center" is slated to open in Spring 2018.  This appears to be on the south-side of the building, so maybe they will be gradually taking over the building?
