Thanks for the link, George – that’s the cost structure I remembered. The two-building option seems to be the $55m option. Interesting that the story refers to the fact that "trustees heard three of four options"... wonder what that would be?

Those 600+ public sector salaries would certainly be a boon for the core in terms of business meals, coffee breaks and catering (underground parking presumably comped to employees), but they won't necessarily be captured as residents – there's nothing to stop them from driving out of the core at day's end, especially given the excellent highway access. Still, it saves a building, and since it's already got more square footage than Lister and the Board of Ed will actually own the site, it should compare favourably.
