The San Antonio Express-News building has been put up for sale, the paper reported

Publisher Susan Pape said that the company may sell the building, at 301 Avenue E., site of the paper for almost nine decades.

No asking price is set for the eight-story, art deco-style property, an attached printing plant and other space, the Hearst-owned paper says.  The property has around 172,000 square feet on 2.1 acres

“The purpose of this is to explore the development opportunities for this property,” Pape said. “It is in no way related to a change in our structure, our commitment to the community or the products that we are going to produce.”

The structure’s top four floors are empty. Some 300 people work in the building, the paper said.
