CLA and CAO Say PHF Costs UP UP UP

The CLA and CAO's offices issued a memo to the City Council yesterday on the proposed Police Headquarters Facility to be built on the old Caltrans block. It's available here as a PDF.

The basic gist is that the project budget is going up, likely by about $50 million. The original 2004 budget was $303.2 million, and now they're asking the Council to approve $340.9 million. And even then they say land costs have gone up since this number was put together in August, so that portion will likely still rise.

The photo at left shows the Higgins Building, directly to the south of the project site. The big banner that you can barely see in my tiny photo reads "LIVE WORK PLAY" and is a response to their residential building's categorization as office space in the LAPD Environment Impact document.
