Interested bidders for the Greenwich Avenue post office will soon get more information about moving forward with the sale of the historic building.
The U.S Postal Service announced earlier this year its intention to sell the building and downsize to a smaller space. The 17,000-square-foot space is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. According to published reports, postal service officials said they are looking for buyers that plan to preserve the building and the 1939 mural in the lobby.
Jim Fagan, managing director of Cushman & Wakefield, the firm handling the sale, said in the reports that no deadline has been set for bidding, but the property will be actively on the market. Residents will see a for sale sign up within the next week. "I wouldn't be surprised if there is a closing by the year-end," he said.
