YRC Worldwide Inc. is selling a 270,000-sq.-ft. building in Akron, OH, as part of plans to reduce its presence in Ohio, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The facility is the former headquarters of Roadway.

The sale of the building at 1077 Gorge Blvd. will prompt the move of at least 100 employees to other Ohio facilities. Another 50 employees will have the option to move to jobs in Kansas, South Dakota and Iowa. Between 50 and 100 Akron workers will be let go, according to the report.

California-based Industrial Realty Group Owner Stuart Lichter — who is also developing the Goodyear headquarters in Akron — is acquiring the property from YRC. A sale price has not been disclosed, but Summit County appraised the building and land at about $8.5 million, the newspaper reports.
