WestMark Closes Sale of Historical Lubbock Landmark

August 13, 2014

LUBBOCK, TX – WestMark Commercial announced today it closed the sale of Lubbock's historical Federal Building located at 800 Broadway.



WestMark Commercial agents Karen Higgins, CCIM and Alison Blalock, CCIM were tapped by Lubbock County to market the Federal Building in a nation wide effort. Offers were received from all over the nation and ultimately the best buyer delivered. Built in 1932, this historic building with it's beautiful architecture, was used as the Lubbock Federal Building housing both the downtown Post Office and the federal courtroom until 1968. It was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1995. The 40,000 square foot building has many of it's original features including extensive marble flooring and staircase. The new owners, RGIS Broadway Development have not finalized plans on the renovation, but have said, apartments, hotel rooms, dining, and office space are all an option. The buyer completed a similar conversion of this nature in Tulsa, OK resulting in the luxurious and beautifully restored Mayo Hotel.


“It takes a very special person who has the vision and the resources to accomplish a project of this size and their resume is exceptional. The Mayo Hotel in Tulsa is the crown jewel of Tulsa and this buyers vision and expertise will finally provide something for which all of Lubbock can be proud,” commented Higgins of the buyers.
