The vacant Elmhurst High School property in Fort Wayne could soon come under new ownership. The Journal Gazette reports two potential buyers have made offers for the property currently owned by Fort Wayne Community Schools.
The school closed in 2010 and the school board voted to sell the building in February. FWCS spokesperson Krista Stockman tells the publication details about the offers haven’t been released due to the ongoing negotiations.
The more than 226,000 square-foot building was built in 1929 and costs the district about $15,000 each year for insurance and electricity. Stockman tells The Journal Gazette the school board is expected to consider a final offer later this month.
