I can't speak to your first point other than to say that having been in the building once, the interior was definitely dated, and I wouldn't be surprised if it did have the types of problems typical of buildings of its vintage. That said, I would also believe that the Board made their decision and then looked for reasons to justify it.

Only problem with your proposed solution in the second paragraph is that if we gave them the land outright, it's not really ours to dictate what happens with it. Had council wanted to exercise that control, they could have found ways to do so (100 year lease, covenant on the land, collateral contract, etc.).

If it's true the City gave them the land outright, well, then the City really has no option to say what should happen to it.
