Field of dreams in Austin

In Austin, they have built one monumental and beautiful new library, and this weekend they shall see if people come.
I'm betting they do.
The new downtown library is almost 200,000 square feet. It's steel and wood and stone and light and air.
I love it almost as much as I love the new library in Seguin, a few miles east of New Braunfels.
There's just one hitch:
It cost about $630 per square foot to build and furnish.
When you look at library construction costs across the nation in the last two years, that amount puts the Austin library right up there with libraries on the West Coast in terms of price.
Wonder what Jeff Bezos thinks about that?
