Sheboygan Press Media announced Thursday it is placing its building in downtown Sheboygan up for sale as part of its strategic transformation to meet its changing business needs.

During its 106-year history, The Sheboygan Press has occupied three buildings, having constructed and moved into its current building, at 632 Center Ave., in 1924. The building was designed to house the newspaper’s printing press, composing room, classifieds department and other operations that have since been moved to other locations.

“Our building has been such a rich part of our history and it has served us well over the years,” said Nhia Yang, general manager and executive editor of Sheboygan Press Media. “But as the industry has evolved, so have our needs. With an ever increasing focus on the digital component of our business, we have found there is no longer a need for so much office space.”

The building measures in at under 34,000 square feet, while only 5,000 square feet are needed for Sheboygan Press Media’s business and Information Center operations. Printing operations were moved to a Gannett facility in Fond du Lac in 1998, and then in 2010 to Milwaukee, where Journal Sentinel Inc. prints The Sheboygan Press.

There isn’t a timeline for a sale or a move, Yang said, adding that all options will be explored as Sheboygan Press Media looks for its future location.

“We are committed to staying in Sheboygan,” Yang said. “Regardless of our locale, we will continue to pursue and produce great journalism for our readers, deliver terrific marketing solutions for our clients and diligently work to serve the greater good of our community.”

(NYSE: GCI), an international media and marketing solutions company that informs and engages more than 100 million people every month through its powerful network of broadcast, digital, mobile and publishing properties.
