Potential Shenanigans?

According to the Worcester Telegram and Gazette, the Dominion Tower and the New Orleans Centre (with parking garage) are going to be taken by the state to use for offices. Some offices would be for the city if I am reading this article correctly.
Nagin didn't respond because he's in Panama.

I wonder if this is akin to TV stations advertising their own TV shows. That money has to come from somewhere. In this situation, is the state going to charge the city rent? Will it be fair value? Should the city own the building and charge the state rent? Someone needs to keep an eye on this because there is a great deal of potential scandal lying here.
