In what I thought was shocking news it was learned this week that headquarters live in the old Salisbury fire headquarters will be closing and the daily Times would be moving in during the fall

I don't think They are selling the building for a profit or otherwise. The Daily Times, owned by Gannett, is leasing the building, not buying. Gannett Will not purchase the building as they expect the Daily Times to be out of business within 12 months.

Did you read the press release? Gillis said HQ Live wasn't bringing in enough money. So they are going to lease it to the DT instead.

You can bet that if they find a long term tenant, they'll sell the building. Those profits could be used to fund their sweetheart deal in the municipal lot. They can't move forward with that until they have enough cash flow in committed leases.

Funny how this building was practically given away in the name of the "arts," and now it's getting turned into an office building. The city could have gotten a lot more money just by selling it to somebody who wanted to make an office building. Instead if just selling it at market rate to let it get use in its most efficient manner, they had to control the transaction to pass it off to one of their friends.

If that's not bad enough, now the city wants to build an ampitheater! There's not enough demand to fund one privately (ie, Heron Ponds and HQL), so we need to subsidize one. That way we can have our low quality music 5 or 6 months a year.

It doesn't matter if this building is leased or sold, the current owners bought it for pennies on the dollar knowing they will be making a profit on it.
