The famous clock tower has been stripped

The former newsroom of the Times-Picayune on Howard Avenue, whose iconic clock tower can be seen from 1-10, has been sold.

I remember this place.

Work is underway to prepare the building for transfer to the new owner, which means stripping that clock tower.

The Times-Picayune |’s report doesn’t disclose the buyer; confidentiality requirements prohibit them from doing so until the sale is final, which should be sometime this fall.

The paper announced it would shut down its Howard Avenue facility in October 2014, moving printing and production offices to Mobile, Alabama and an expanded facility in Metairie. Most of the paper’s editorial staff has worked out of an office at One Canal Place since 2013.

Work to prepare the building should be complete in July.
