Anybody have updates on Rene Ortiz's new Thai place on S.1st?

I drive by there all the time; it looks like it's getting pretty close to finished. Has anybody heard any updates as far as ETA or name?
Most of the recent articles I've found are a couple months old, including this one:
Pretty interesting... I'm intrigued by the "modern Australian" element. Plus the building is looking pretty awesome.
Ha, that's very clever... and definitely good to see that there's no Thai pun, though I wouldn't expect that from a place that's (from the outside at least) looking pretty sophisto. Also quite refreshing that it's not another one word name, e.g. Uchi/Uchiko, Lenoir, Congress, Wink, Olivia. Nothing wrong with those places, of course, but I'm happy to see that naming trend take a hike.
wonder if it's going to be more modern/fusiony like spin (far nw, near lakeline, for those not familiar with my neighborhood).
