PI Update: Concept Art Revisited

To refresh everyone's memory about what is coming to Disney Springs, thought it would be a good idea to revisit some of the concept art pieces that are still on display throughout Pleasure Island.  This one is posted near the Lily Pad and shows how shops will be built right up against the springs.
This one posted nearby shows the indoor shopping center look of one of the new buildings.
This is what The Hanger will look like once completed.
This piece of concept art is right up against Mannequins.
Zooming in on that one, we see the new No. 2 Bridge crossing the springs at an angle approaching Raglan Road and Morimoto Asia restaurant.
Over at West End Plaza, that construction wall has a piece of concept art posted on it too.
Zooming in, it displays a view of the STK Restaurant that will be built behind that wall, but as envisioned from the opposite direction looking upwards.
This large display features several snippets of other Disney Springs scenes including the High Line at Exposition Park.
The actual concept art is still posted at the entrance to the PI bypass causeway.
It shows the upper level as originally announced which included guest access via stairs or elevator.  While this piece of high line displayed is presumably finished without any access to the top, one has to wonder why this is still displayed if it's not to be?
Lastly, outside BET Soundstage and Adventurers Club, the art displays what we thought was going to be The Edison Orlando but a new Notice of Commencement filed by Disney with Orange County shows Patina Restaurant Group occupying the space.  Yet another mystery.

The high-line concept art is puzzling. It's not at all what we got, almost like the artist was given vague descriptions over the phone about it, and the designer had other ideas. It's another sign that Disney doesn't know how to do project management,
