An Easton landmark that has been for sale is now off the market.
Northampton County officials announced Wednesday the sale of the Governor Wolf building to a development group.
The building, at 45 N. Second St., currently houses county offices, including the Area Agency on Aging, Children, Youth and Families, and Veterans Affairs.
The county is currently in the process of relocating all Human Services divisions into a new centralized, 66,000-square-foot facility in Bethlehem Twp.
The Wolf Building Development Group has agreed to buy the property for $1.925 million. The purchase price includes the 55,000-square foot building, and 183 parking spaces on 3.396 acres.
The agreement also includes the county leasing back a warehouse behind the Wolf Building to consolidate storage it has in other leased or owned facilities. This will actually save the county around $2,700 each year.
Wolf Building Development Group is redeveloping the building for mixed use with potential for commercial space and high end residential units on the upper floors.
“This is a win - win situation," said County Executive John Stoffa. "Northampton County will reinvest the revenue from this sale into the new Human Service facility that can better serve our 18,000 clients while at the same time we are able to contribute to the economic development and historic preservation of downtown Easton."
Northampton County bought the property in 1986 for $912,000.
