We don't know that. The Board's Committee of the Whole explored several concepts on November 5th, 2007, including a staff presentation that detailed the cost of restoring the current building, which included adding an addition and underground parking.

The staff report estimated that this option would cost $65 Million. The minutes don't have any link to the staff report, nor do they include a breakdown of that number. That could tell us what the basic restoration costs of the building itself would be- minus the underground parking and the addition. Then we could truly assess whether the building can be feasibly restored as a part of this development- the evidence you're asking for.

The report was by Daryl Sage and is referenced in these minutes as "Concept 4":

I've been asking the board since last July to supply me with that staff report, with no luck.
