Naturally, we move the market by ~6% and add 500K of subsidized office square footage.
As excited as I am to imagine this new complex once it is complete, it does give me the same feeling I get when I put down my credit card to make a pricy and irresponsible purchase. There is really no justifying it.

So which buildings will get hit hardest by the construction of TNS? I'm assuming there will be some inflow from the suburbs, but I'm sure some will be coming from likely class B downtown buildings?
