The United States Postal Service made $25 million off the sale of the old Fifth Street post office building last month, USPS officials said.
There’s no word what the new owners, SkyDance Productions, want to do with the 1937 building. The producers of films like “True Grit” and “World War Z” expressed a desire to work with the Landmarks Commission at their meeting on Monday.
The post office was shuttered in June of 2013 as part of a nationwide USPS plan to fill a multi-billion dollar budget gap by selling off valuable properties.
Last year, City Council approved a preservation covenant protecting its historic features inside and out.
