What's Up with the Franklin?

The Franklin stands at 4th & Bell.  It's a staid old brick apartment building.  I'm sure it has its share of history and whatnot.  So imagine my surprise when it suddenly appeared in this condition:
Yeah, so the first story is boarded up and all the units appear to be vacant.  I think they're going to rehab the place.  Either that or they'll tear it down to make a building to house regeneration pods for all the incoming Amazon employees.  You heard it here first.

The preliminary plan is to develop
one 24- or 25-story building and
one six- to eight-story building at
2302-2316 Fourth Ave. Both
buildings will have ground floor
