RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A much-maligned office building next to the Virginia Capitol has only one legislative session left.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (goo.gl/oRk31n) that the General Assembly Building, which houses lawmakers’ offices and staff, will be demolished later this year.

The building is a patchwork of four different structures and has problems with asbestos and mold.

Lawmakers and staff will be moved to new buildings while a new legislative office building is constructed following this year’s session. The $300 million project is set to be completed in 2021.
