Nome Federal Building For Sale


by Brittany Auger

Looking for a new piece of real estate? Well, the 27,000 square foot Federal Building in Nome is currently for sale through an online auction.

The city said it is location, flooding, and maintenance that has caused the sale of the Nome federal building, and while it is the federal government that prompted the sale of the building, the city said it is a decision that they fully support, as the 53 year old building requires more maintenance than the city can provide.

City officials said the building, which is located on South Front Street, in downtown Nome, is subject to harsh rain and wind storms, which have caused serious damage to the building. And while they say they hope to keep the building on front street, they want to move it to a location on the north side of the street, out of the way of the heavy wind and rain.

Online bidding for the building opened last week, with a starting price of $300,000 however, not a single bid has been placed yet.
