Cupertino City Hall
long last edited by pofetl
Cupertino City Hall was designed and built in 1965. The size is about 24,140 square-foot (indicated here). It doesn't meet the current building standards. Please see here for more information. We need to do something to make staff work in a building that meets standards.
There are three options according to a 04/30/2019 report:
- Building new City Hall - $70.5M
- Renovated - $23M
- Minimum - $6.6M
Neighboring city Sunnyvale just built a new 120,000 square-foot City Hall. And the first phase cost was about $315M. So the per square-foot cost is about $2625.
On 11/15/2022, Cupertino City Council directed the staff to include the City Hall Renovation with $27.5M to next FY budget (see here).
On 02/11/2023, the new City Council preferred a new 80,000 square-foot City Hall. If we take the Sunnyvale new City Hall's per square-foot cost number, the cost would be $210M, which is much more than proposed $70.5M.
New City Hall was included in the FY 2023-24 five year plan for CIP.
Given Cupertino is in a budget crisis, which option for the City Hall do you think Cupertino should take?
