RACINE, WI — The historical home of the Racine Journal Times daily newspaper is officially up for sale, as the longtime print publication lines up new office space apart from its longtime downtown fixture.

Mike Hetland, First Weber Realtor posted the listing on his professional Facebook page this Wednesday. In his post, Weber listed the Journal Times building at 212 Fourth Street for $899,000. The building is approximately 66,000 square feet, comes with an additional 10,000 feet of additional warehouse space at 320 Wisconsin Ave. and about 20 parking spots.

“Here is your chance to own/develop an iconic piece of Racine history,” Hetland said.

The move is facilitated by the paper shifting its printing operation from its downtown Racine location to one in Munster Indiana. That move was announced in May, and resulted in a total of 39 layoffs.
