While I maintain that anything is for sale at any time, it turns out that the office building that houses The Inquirer, Daily News and philly.com really is for sale again.
Center City-based Binswanger said it's been named exclusive agent by Philadelphia Media Network Inc., owner of those two dailies and the online portal, to sell the 526,000-square-foot building at 400 N. Broad St. as well as the five-level, 502-space parking garage at 15th & Callowhill streets and adjacent 200-space surface lot.
You can read about the landmark Inquirer building in the language that real estate types like to use in descriptions of everything from a 1-bedroom apartment to a long-closed steel mill here.
The building was last put on the market in August 2007 by then-CEO Brian Tierney. The broker handling the sale then was Jones Lang LaSalle. The real estate market was at its frothiest, but quickly cooled as the nation dropped into recession that December.
