OLYMPIA — A consultant’s report said it would cost more than $124 million to renovate the 55-year-old General Administration building near the Capitol in Olympia.

That’s $34 million more than previously estimated and just $37 million less than the estimated cost of replacing the building.

The Olympian reported local lawmakers say it’s time to start planning a new facility.

The General Administration building houses the Washington State Patrol and other state offices.
