Does the integration/centralization of Public Health facilities here (the biggest reason for the extra floors neede) entail pulling the department out of the nearby Wright House? What's to happen with it?

Come to think of it, how many office buildings downtown are relying on rent from government offices? The Lister, Wright House, Standard Life tower, One James South, 21 King East, 250 Main, etc... Shifting these offices from tower to tower may help with various revitalization projects (pretty much the only reason non-residential stuff gets developed in the core), but what about the spaces they leave behind?

Downtown has suffered with an enormous excess of office space for years. More simply is not needed. We need to stop moving offices out of the core, and stop building new offices.
