Talejas iela 1 - State Revenue Service new headoffices

The construction of new State Revenue Service office building was finished last week.

But the weirdest and saddest part of the story just follows - state will rent the building for 7,5 mio per year for the next 30 years! Yes, the state paid for it's construction and yet it will continue to pay for rent! How that's possible, where is the logic in this? Don't ask me...
