For years, City Hall has been undergoing constant renovations, and the job isn't going to be over soon?even though it was supposed to be finished in 2012. The original estimated cost of $65 million has more than doubled to about $150 million because no one really understood the extreme state of disrepair the building was in. One official involved with the ongoing work said, "Every time you poke a screwdriver in the wall you discover some other problem." Next up on the to-do list: a new zinc-coated roof. [NYT]
