I recall reading in the Catholic media that the main reason that Pope Francis will not be conducting Holy Thursday Mass in St. John Lateran is because the cathedral is undergoing significant repair and renewal construction.

No, it is because he has not yet taken possession of the cathedral as the Bishop of Rome. He will presumably do that before Holy Week in 2014 and can then hold the Mass of the Lord’s Supper in St. John Lateran.
