PI Update: Latest Changes

It was finally made official last Friday!  The Edison will replace Adventurers Club. While it is primarily a restaurant into the evening, we expect it will offer some of the promised late night adult entertainment to Disney guests.
Outside Paradiso 37, the construction wall along Hill Street has been moved yet again. But this time it's for their own expansion rather than someone else's.  We expect P37 to offer a new level of adult evening entertainment of it's own on it's new outdoor balcony overlooking Village Lake.
Havaianas finally has a sign.
This sign is also on the side of their building.
Mannequins transition continues.
Most of the exterior action is on the south side facing the former PI parking lot.
Butted glass will give diners on multiple levels the ability to look out on the springs.
Also visible from the Island is the extensive construction that makes up creation of the Town Center section of Disney Springs.
Elevator shafts foretell another multi-story retail building.
The approximately 75 venues that made up Downtown Disney will become the approximately 150 venues that make up Disney Springs.
Closeup shows that some of these buildings will be quite large.  The cranes at the rear are for construction of the East Garage along Buena Vista Drive.
Construction of The Springs continues as well.

What do you think that big wooden column lying on it's side outside the AC is in your first picture?

That picture is deceiving. The pale blue in that photo is the top of the construction wall and that wood column you're referring to is really just a 2x4 laying on top of the wall. It's really not huge.
