No Tenants for Old Courthouse

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Colorado Tire Corporation is still looking for tenants for the former federal courthouse in downtown Billings. Annette Perez, the company's Chief Operating Officer, says the old Battin building is empty, but some people have inquired about leasing the building. She says the company didn't think the history of the asbestos in the old courthouse would be a challenge to leasing it out, but it has been an issue. Perez says a contractor tested the building and it was declared safe.

CTC bought the building during an online auction from the General Services Administration last year for nearly $3.3 million. The company has owned it since last August.
