YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Youngstown City Council gave approval Wednesday to seek bids for a downtown Youngstown property.
The city is looking to sell 20 Federal Place. That is the old Strouss’ and Phar-Mor building.
City leaders are looking for a developer to take over the building.
A consultant hired by the city proposes turning the upper four floors of the seven-story building into apartments. Upgrade the first-floor food court and turn the basement into a six-lane bowling alley, bar and malt shop.
The city took over the 95-year-old building in 2004 and has been trying to sell it since.
