New Style Front Loaders For NYC Sanitation?

Caught this at the Queens Central Sanitation shops recently.

Looks to be a 2006 Freightliner Condor/New Way Mammoth

Is NYC switching away from the Mack MR chasis for the overhead dumpster loaders, or is this just a demo?

Looks pretty cool and modern, though I still feel a Mack is a better product for this application.
