If you looked carefully at the video accompanying yesterday's post - which showed the opening of the old TV show "Medical Center" - you might have noticed the surface parking behind the Center. [Above are two stills from that video.] As parking is eliminated for new construction, such as what now occupies that space, replacement parking tends to be expensive underground and above ground structures whose cost is sometimes passed along to parkers. Yes, in theory the new building's funding source is supposed to defray the cost of replacement parking and be passed to whatever funding the new building has. But it doesn't always happen quite that way. Keep that in mind whenever you see an on-campus construction crane or worksite.
