South Bend seeks new use for hall of fame building
SOUTH BEND, Ind. — South Bend officials are looking to find a new occupant for a prime piece of downtown real estate that will go vacant after the College Football Hall of Fame closes its doors on Sunday.
The National Football Foundation announced three years ago it was moving the hall to Atlanta after failing to draw the crowds expected when it moved the facility from Ohio to South Bend in 1995.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg says he doesn't want to see the 58,000-square-foot facility sit vacant long. The city is trying to sell the building for $2.8 million.
South Bend executive director of community investment Scott Ford says the city is looking for a business that would be a catalyst for further investment and activity downtown.
