State Efforts To Cut Leased Space Hit Difficulties

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Plans to renovate two large state-owned office buildings in Lansing and move employees from leased space are costing more than expected and running into other difficulties.

Work on Constitution Hall and the Stevens T. Mason Building is taking place at a cost of $32.4 million, more than double the original $14.8 million estimate. An aim was to move more than 1,000 employees from leased space to cut costs.

Meanwhile, there are reports that nearly all employees who are moving into or will move into Constitution Hall are coming from another state-owned building, not a leased building.

Kurt Weiss, a spokesman for the Department of Technology, Management and Budget, says it's also not clear whether any leases will be terminated to fill the expanded Mason Building.
