Courthouse TRAX station

Staring at an aerial of the UTA Trax, reflecting how awkwardly close the courthouse station is to both the Gallivan Center and Library stations. Wonder how much it would cost to move the station a block south (yellow star), so that it would provide direct access to the Grand America and Little America hotels, rather than to the Matheson courthouse? I have to imagine the ridership would be better. Currently, conventioneers have to walk the block to the station to get on TRAX. It would also add some redevelopment potential from that large cleared lot a block away.
