Cost to build Gibson building in 1998 was four million I believe. I think I'm correct but don't quote me.... Heh....

A better question might be how much would it cost to build a building like the Gibson Bldg?

I don't think so. Do you have any idea how much money is needed to fix the chase tower? It runs into the millions. Emergency? Maybe. Have you seen the deplorable conditions of the Main St facility on Clinton? Council has had THREE years to make this decision. Interest rates are rising, time is money.

It sounds like a good decision.

Did the City take into consideration that the Chase Tower, a nine story historic building sold at auction for $75,000.

Does the Tribune really think the Sergio deal is a good one?

I can probably assume that had the city jumped into bed with this scrap dealer, the Trib would be critical of that....probably calling out administration for paying that much for property this scrap dealer bought for a mere 80,000...

Not to mention, wasn't that scrap dealer/"developer" suing the city over the O'brien adminstration stopping his unpermitted stripping of those properties?

Valesky did the right thing. Now city officials and councilpersons can do the right thing. Treat buying the property as you would buying your own home...Thoroughly check it out. Get Warranties, Negotiate a fair price. Not what the seller says he/she wants.

Good point. If two council members were willing to be absent, how can it be an emergency?
