So they are abating it but not repurposing it?  What is the point of doing that?  Hopefully once abated it gets torn down, it is one of the biggest eyesores in the city.

I don't have any inside knowledge on what they are doing with this project, but I am familiar with asbestos renovation/demolitions, generally.  Maybe the exterior panels will be part of the planned asbestos removal. 

To your 2nd questions, based upon the pictures provided above, the exterior panels appear to be removable considering the underlying metal superstructure.  As such, I suspect if the panels are removed, it would then make sense financially to rebuild around the existing metal structure ... but that is a guess.  Several years ago, I believe they did something similar with the building at 1307 South Boulder, i.e., removed the exterior panels and rebuilt around the existing structure.
