SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP): A South Bend building that once housed the College Football Hall of Fame is back on the market after a purchase agreement between the city and Ivy Tech Community College expired.
City economic development chief Scott Ford says the parties involved couldn't find “an economic model that made sense” for South Bend's taxpayers.
Ivy Tech had planned to use the 52,000-square-foot building that's been valued at $2.68 million to house its culinary arts program.
The school entered into a purchase agreement with South Bend in April and extended it in October to allow the city to entertain other offers for the building.
The building has been largely vacant since the museum closed at the end of 2012 as the Hall of Fame moved to Atlanta.
