The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland is a step closer to selling its landmark building Downtown that housed its Pittsburgh branch for 81 years.

The nation's central bank hired Cleveland-based Cresco Real Estate and Pittsburgh-based Grant Street Associates Inc. to market the 200,000-square-foot building, said bank spokeswoman Anne DiTeodoro. Built in 1931, the structure has a market value of $6.5 million, including the land, according to Allegheny County records.

The Fed moved its Pittsburgh branch and 23 workers down the street to One Oxford Centre's 30th floor in October. The operation employed more than 300 as recently as early 2011.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
