Something I never understood is why, when small and mid-size cities
all over the country had vacant or under-utilized commercial real
estate available, we demanded a NEW building. From what I've read,
the Crossville building has no architectural features unique to our
requirements -- in fact, we probably have no unique architectural
requirements. But we still paid an architect when stock plans might
have made sense.
Buying an older but sound building somewhere in the rust belt or even
snagging a long-term lease at bargain rates didn't seem to be fully
explored. As I remember, the main "competition" was a huge white
elephant structure, which seemed somewhat a straw horse (excuse the
mixed metaphors) to me.
It was like the decision was made, and from then on, discussion was
held to be invalid because it was "water under the bridge".
I hope my memory is faulty about this period in USCF planning.
