The owners switched law firms from one that was very good in zoning in DC, but not so much in MoCo, to the current top dog for zoning in MoCo, whose office are right down the street. This may be a new bargaining position, in which case the County has to be prepared to pay up to the incremental extra expense of building the tunnel under an existing structure.

Replacing the Apex Building with another building will not allow the CCT to remain in the existing tunnel, but would open enough space to allow a new, second tunnel to be built for the trail. The new tunnel would be under Elm Street and open into Elm Street Park.

Definitely seems like a negotiating tactic to get more money for allowing the demolition. I wouldn't worry too much about the CCT. However, this is going to mean more money paid out for the Purple Line station and CCT tunnel.
