USPS Selling Topeka Downtown Office

KSAL StaffFebruary 3, 2014

The U.S. Postal Service has told Topeka officials it intends to sell its office building and parking lot in downtown Topeka.

In a letter addressed to Mayor Larry Wolgast and City Manager Jim Colson, Angela Kuhl, a USPS real estate specialist, says services will be relocated to an undetermined new location.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports  the facility was consolidated earlier with a processing center in Kansas City, Mo., cutting 133 of the 150 jobs at the Topeka location.

City Councilman Chad Manspeaker, who tweeted an image of the letter Monday, said on Twitter the building once served as a courthouse, where the historic Brown v. Board of Education was tried.
