Isn't this very much like Lk 21:24 KAI IEROUSALHM ESTAI PATOUMENH hUPO
EQNWN, ACRI hOU PLHRWQWSIN KAIROI EQNWN.?
My understanding of the construction is that ACRI(S) hOU + subjunctive
envisions a future point in time at which a process will be completed.
There's a contingency limiting the continuation of the process described in
the clause with the indicative.
