Renovation: New Furniture At Capitol Costs Half a Million Dollars


Not all of the cosmetic upgrades in the $50 million State Capitol Renovation project are for the sake of historical accuracy.

 

The project also included $500,000 for new furniture in the revamped offices of lawmakers and legislative staffers.

 

The Chicago Sun-Times reports Capitol architect J. Richard Alsop the Third defends the expenditure, saying the old furniture would not have matched the layout or design of the newly-remodeled space.

 

The revelation may add to the criticism that the project was too lavish and overspent on features like copper-plated doors or vintage-looking chandeliers.
