City gets $425,000 offer for old police headquarters

Glenwood’s old police department building at 823 Blake Ave. is under contract for $425,000, but city officials aren’t identifying the buyer until the sale is final.

“We’d rather not release the name at this time,” said Glenwood Springs Mayor Don Vanderhoof.

City manager Mike Copp said he expects the buyer to close on the property in the next two to three weeks.

Copp said the city’s first asking price for the 4,710-square-foot building was $550,000, but there were no takers. He said Garfield County was offered the building for $400,000 in a separate purchase, but turned it down.

The building is zoned commercial.

The city bought the building, located at 823 Blake Ave., in 1984 from El Dorado Engineering, Copp said. Before that, the police department was housed in the basement of the old City Hall. The police department moved into the new City Hall last summer.
