Is anything happening to the old air-sides, as in tear downs, or are new airlines/more gate takeovers going to happen?

Re: DL May Push C-Series Order to AM Avoiding Trade Duty

Was curious what happened with the former AirTran Airways HQ located at 9955 Airtran Blvd (lol). Does Southwest use it for offices, or is it unused?
