Study Finds Publicly-Funded Libraries and Museums Too Expensive, Too Slow To Build

http://www.wnyc.org/story/study-publicly-funded-libraries-and-museums-too-expensive-too-slow-build/

“It’s just a one-story building, but the Mariners Harbor Library on Staten Island took nearly eight years to move from the drawing board to opening day in 2013. Across town in the Bronx, the Kingsbridge Library that opened in 2011 took more than nine years to build. The cost per square foot was more than double what developers pay, on average, to build new office buildings in New York.”
