baltimore-sun-media-group-officeThe latest news from the Baltimore Sun’s parent company involves the building that contains the paper’s newsroom and other offices.

According to the Sun, owner Tribune Publishing is looking to sell the building and parking garage at 501 N. Calvert St.

In a message to staff, newly named publisher and editor-in-chief Trif Alatzas wrote that the sale would not affect the paper’s lease of the building. City Paper, which is owned by the Baltimore Sun Media Group, is also headquartered there.

The Sun has been housed in the building since 1950. In 1988, printing and distribution operations were moved to Port Covington. That property was recently sold to the development arm of Under Armour founder Kevin Plank as it amassed land for the massive South Baltimore development that will include a new UA campus. In that arrangement, the Sun now leases the property from Sagamore Development.
