@Egedda Does your team really want to create a separate Labs project or can your new service be created as a Tool Labs tool?
Either platform allows a group to collaborate to develop and maintain a software service, but Labs requires a higher ongoing commitment in the form of managing servers and software packages in addition to the custom software provided by the project maintainers. See What is the difference between Labs and Tool Labs? on wikitech for additional explanation of the difference.
Ah, sorry, I see this is part of a university course, presumably apart from commtech? That sounds very important, and not something you should abandon just because another tool already exists. I obviously am in no position to dictate what others want to work on, but thought I'd offer a friendly suggestion: Perhaps you could consider focusing on features that don't exist? I have started on a "Topviews Analysis" tool which illustrates top viewed pages, which I hope to have out soon. The one other highly requested feature that requires a new UI would be a tool to show pageview data on an article across all projects. I had plans to take on that as well, and call it "Langviews Analysis" (just a fun name to be in line with the two other tools). If you are interested in working on that it would bring a much desired tool to fruition that doesn't exist.
@Egedda Surely you know about Pageviews Analysis? This was forked from the demo app created by the analytics team, and is now linked to on most wikis. When I started this project I was unaware of the commtech plans... and now was under the impression we'd sort of team up on it. Is that no longer an interest? I of course don't want to get in the way of anyone's plans, but I would like reassurance that my hard work won't ultimately replaced by another tool.
Together with 10 of my fellow friends, we've decided to replace the old statistics tool (stats.grok.se) with a new and fresh statistics tool.
This is a thing we are developing as a part of a course at our university, but we are very interested in keeping the community involved, all the way through.

@Egedda have you uploaded the Project Planning Document to Commons yet?

Per discussion on the Analytics mailing list, would it be possible for the students to publish their Project Planning Document on Commons under a CC-BY or CC-BY-SA license?
