Save Hanger One as it is one of the few National Treasures in Silicon Valley as it gives us great pride.

H211 (which is associated with Google founders but is not "Google") wants to pay to preserve Hangar One in exchange for leasing 2/3 of the Hangar. Seems more than fair.

Hangar One is now a national treasure? Really? I can't see it.
Just because Google has offered to pay for the remodel of Hangar One doesn't mean they will take on the maintenance costs forever.
That's what I'm worried about. Someone down the road, most likely we the taxpayers, is going to have to pay to maintain that white elephant. No one wants to talk about that.
Other than parking airplanes in it I don't know what other good uses exist for Hangar One. If there were, I think you'd have more people willing to put up money.
I'm against any tax money going to maintain a hangar the military has long since said they no longer require.
Google can park their planes someplace else.
