ST. LOUIS (AP) – The parent company of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says it’s looking for a new home for the newspaper after 56 years in a six-story building downtown.
The Post-Dispatch reports Lee Enterprises, the newspaper’s owner since 2005, announced its plans to sell the building at 900 N. Tucker Blvd.
That building was completed in 1931 and has been the newspaper’s base since 1959.
Lee says Hilliker Corp. will market the property, and a listing price hasn’t yet been provided.
Other major U.S. metropolitan newspapers have relinquished large headquarters buildings that were built for an earlier age.
As the Post-Dispatch’s president and publisher, Ray Farris says the newspaper would like to stay in the downtown area and is seeking a modern site as it expands its digital platform.
