Yet another Harvey cost for Houston: Skyscraper office space

Since Harvey, procurement workers from the City Hall basement -- and, since December, information technology staff booted from their ruined office space at the city's 611 Walker facility thanks to a malfunctioning sprinkler system -- have worked across Smith Street from City Hall at One Shell Plaza.
