I have two questions about the same text. My first question is about the following sentence:
The most substantial planned change is a proposal to alter what is currently a temporary exhibition space and develop it into a permanent exhibiting area.
Doesn't the word "proposal" here feel redundant? It seems like a too quick succession of synonyms to me.
My second question is in what sense does "would" add to the following sentence? Couldn't the author replace "would" with "will" here?
The suggested alteration would create one complete open space for permanent exhibitions. Further to this, there are plans to upgrade the lobby so that the gallery would include an education facility with an adjacent storage and plant room.
The text is about the existing and proposed layout of an art gallery.
