I'm trying to place this on Google and Bing maps....

Are these on the tennis courts, or more in that swampy pond area near the entrance ramp?

That is way too small of a footprint for something potentially that tall. I can't even imagine what this could be for.
Is it possible that it's not for something necessary to be placed right at the tennis courts, but more trying to get a feel for a view of something beyond? As the crow flies, straight from space between the Swan and Dolphin, over the tennis courts leads towards that new fireworks launch sight across World Drive. I dunno, just spitballing.

It's enough space for something pretty big if they get rid of Fantasia Gardens (I am not suggesting that is the plan, just a possibility). Of course, it could be something boring.

That's an interesting thought. As @Tom mentioned, even if they got rid of everything in that area it wouldn't really be a large enough area to build something that tall.

Even if they took everything out, it's not a big area. They could build something tall there, but it would have to be something that doesn't require a lot of parking. They could squeeze a hotel tower there, but there would be no room left for parking.

True. Maybe we will soon have the Walt Disney World Swan, Dolphin, and Giraffe.

Here's some thoughts, probably not connected, but who knows? We're been seeing Disney start to test the idea of charging for resort parking for non-resort guests, or at least start to crack down on the the abuse of the practice. I've wondered how this might affect the Epcot resort area, both because of Fantasia Gardens and because of the Boardwalk. I'd think you'd want a cost-free way for off-siters to park for either place after the resort parking itself becomes more restricted. Is is possible a small deck is being considered?

Maybe if there was a parking garage underneath, like at Kidani? (Speculation is fun. I can't wait for people far more in the know than I am to do so!)
