The state is one step away from potentially purchasing a building in downtown Honolulu.

On Tuesday, the full House and Senate passed House Bill 1366, which would pave the way for the state to buy Alii Place for $90 million.

The acquisition would allow the state to put several state offices all under one roof.

Currently, the state rents about 420,888 square feet of office space in the area at a cost of about $10.15 million in rent.

Officials say it could cost more than three times that amount to build new state offices from the ground up.
