+1 when the tile is placed, and also
take $2 from the supply for every Office
in all boroughs.... You must have $10 to buy this tile
initially
(you do not take any money
from the supply until after the tile is
placed). (2)

What do the bolded (by me) words mean?

It's simply a reminder that you can't pay for the tile with the money you will earn from tiles with briefcases on them after placing the tile. You can't "borrow" that money, but rather need to have it up front.

It means that you must be able to buy it with your own money before placing it in your neighborhood and collecting money.

I.e. you can't have zero money, and say, "If I were to buy this, it would make me $16, so I'll just take the tile and $6." You must be able to afford /buy it first.

It should say $16, not $10.

It means you have to fully pay for the tile from the market, before you claim the rewards.

If you only had $12 cash on hand, you aren't allowed to purchase the Shipping Center, even if the cash it would generate would leave you net positive on cash.

I believe it's a misprint and should have said $16.

It's explained in the next sentence. You had to have enough money to buy the tile with existing money, before you get the $2 from every blue tile.

Ah, ok, tahnk you. But this is true for almost all tiles: no money, no tile (but lake).

Unfortunately, it happens enough that they have to spell it out. Same rule is spelled out in 7 Wonders.
