I think it doesn't even necessarily means that phase transition is not seamless, just that there IS a phase transition. They organized this in phases for a reason - they want the option to stop/delay if it makes sense to.

A construction project is an entity to itself, independent of the building that will stand there when construction ends. Building teams and management teams are formed and dissolved with each project. The 3 phases of this are related in that the are literally on top of each other and and will look like all one building when complete, but they aren't necessarily related programatically. The same workers, management, etc from Phase 1 may or may not work on Phase 2. Or they may. Clearly, Phase 1 - a construction project and a building in its own right - has passed a significant milestone. Cheers to them.
