One of the most recognizable downtown buildings, the 20-story building includes a seven-level, 420-space parking garage at the southeast corner of West Third Street and South Ludlow Street.

One South Main Street Holdings LLC — linked to to CW Capital Asset Management in Bethesda, Md. — bought the building in January 2018 for $12.5 million from Ducru Spe LLC, along with associated parcels. The building had been mired in a foreclosure process the previous year.

To bid, interested participants will have to register and submit information, including proof of funds. Only liquid funds readily available to the bidder will be counted towards a requested bid limit, Real Insight Marketplace states.
