Based on the information presented in this story, the City of Menlo Park has gone from a potential $500K outlay of cash, which subsidizes a private business venture to purchasing the building. This should not be done with public money.
If it were a viable business oportunity, two mutually agreeable parties would strike a deal under mutually acceptable terms and conditions. The City of Menlo Park should not be spending tax payer money to purchase private property, for renovation and lease to a private party.
City of Menlo Park should move forward with this action. It is not in the best effort of our city.

I am having trouble understanding the rationale behind city government involvement in this property. Why on Earth would Menlo Park taxpayers want to buy this building?

You are not alone.
will be held accountable for misuse of public funds if this deal goes through.
You are right, it just doesn't make sense!
