$14.95! $14.96 if it were a leap year.

Including the technology in the recording studios?
Figure $10 million in 1986 for the building, figure the cost of the updated studios, the additional rooms upstairs, the Egg and and translate that to 2019 dollars.

The estate is keeping the value of the facility low to decrease the estate tax burden.

He was being helpful and not an ass. You? not so much.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

Ah okay, if you look at it that way, then right I stand corrected. I thought it was some kind of toxic reply that seems to become common round here.

Please explain to me how saying there are calculators on the internet is helpful. There's also calculators on the device you're using to post these replies. And I'm pretty sure the OP knows what a calculator is. That is definitively not helpful.

About 22.6 million if you adjust for inflation.

I would also guess 20 + million. His studios were so tasteful, elegant and spilling over with instuments, equipment; gorgeous woodwork/ceilings.
