City Hall and other city-owned properties could need $80 million in major repairs if Raleigh doesn’t replace them with a new government complex. City staff laid out long-term maintenance needs for the 35-year-old building on Hargett Street downtown. They say it would cost taxpayers about $32 million to redo the mechanical and electrical systems and replace the roof at least twice over the next several decades. It would cost about $28.5 million to do the same upgrades at One Exchange Plaza, which also houses city employees.
Should Raleigh build a new government campus or upgrade city hall?
