Coming soon! We’re excited to partner with the City of Abilene and private developers to help steward the redevelopment of the Abilene Reporter-News Block.

BACKGROUND: 
Located at the corner of Cypress and North 1st Streets, the iconic downtown Abilene building is 102,275 square feet and sits on 2.34 acres. Built in 1950, the newspaper operated out of the building until it was heavily damaged by an electrical fire on Nov. 15, 2018.

DEMOLITION: 
Demolition of the building is currently in progress to make way for new development in #downtownabi. To be put on a contact list of updates on the project, click here.

WHAT IS GOING IN THE PLACE OF THE BUILDING?
Mixed-use development with some residential and parking will begin construction in 2023-2024. If you’re interested in leasing the space, please fill out the form below. Serious inquiries only.

CONTACT:
For additional questions or information, please reach out to our downtown staff liaison, Brent.
