VARA claim in Detroit

Story here.  It involves a mural, painted by artist Katherine Craig on the side of a building in 2009. One interesting twist is that apparently, in her contract with the building's original owner, they agreed the work would remain in place "for at least 10 years."  Would that count as a waiver under VARA? Could they wait her out until 2019?  Remember:  judges don't like, and don't get, VARA.
