You just posing random questions with little point of comparison. How do you know the value of this? Do you know more than the experts?
And why would you want the Victoria Roof to wait?
Think about the number of stories on this newspaper over the years about its dilapidated state.
It gives a terrible impression to visitors of the city.
There is a lot of value in an impression you know.
For that kind of thinking I'd expect it to be free.
