Exactly. I think that is kind of strange.
Part of it might just be an advertising thing. No use marketing NBA Experience when it's not coming out for a while. That attention could be directed towards all of the new things that Disney Springs has going up.
Disney might also be hedging their bets. They could be exploring other options while they very slowly prep DQ to become NBA Experience. If something better comes along, they'll be a big press conference and construction will change a bit.
Now that I think about it, there's nothing on the construction walls stating that the NBA Experience is coming to the location in the future, whereas just across the way, Wolfgang is already walled off with advertisements for the new Jaleo restaurant replacing it.
It is strange, but we'll see as time goes on I guess.
Goodbye garish 90's building:
All they need to do to modernize it is paint it brown and put grass on the roof.
The whole grass on the roof thing is going to be SO dated sooner rather than later.
It's a Starbucks Reserve store, meaning it's one of their flagship stores. They'll keep it updated with the times.
There is indeed a Honey Bar at this location.

Had Homecomin for the first time and enjoyed it a lot. Had the fried chicken and donuts with the shine sampler. Will be going back.
Is the Disney Quest building being prepped for implosion or are they just renovating and reusing the building? To me it looks like it's being prepped for an implosion. Sorry if this has been asked before but curiosity has piqued my interest.
It's being demolished
Oh ok I was more or less getting at that if the building was being rigged with explosives or dismantled with heavy equipment.
Oh..? I thought they were going to reuse the main structural elements. Will be interesting to see it come down.
As for the pics - it's just a truck backing into the loading dock for the HoB. When Springs is closed the main walkway is a service road.
I wonder why Disney didn't do an ESPN experience? I would think the ESPN Grill from Disneyland will do well as DS doesn't have a standout sports bar/restaurant. You can even have the potential to include temporary studios for synergy as well as other things that could promote it.
Well they filed permits for demolition way back in July and seem to be going the route they went to tear down the Sparrow building at DHS.
Because NBA is going to pay rent. Simple as that. Disney is looking to lease out space, not run things themselves.
And if NBA fails, they'll at least have a nice new space to work with.
I thought it was a partnership with Disney running it and NBA being the brand?
