Conference Sells Office Building to Private Group
Allegheny Mennonite Conference has sold its building in Somerset, Pa., to a private group related to conference. Sale of the building, which currently houses conference offices and World’s Attic, was finalized at the end of January.
The new owners of the building are the Zurich Group of State College, Pa., led by Jim Rosenberger, a former conference treasurer. Jim and his colleagues see this purchase not only as an investment but primarily as a way of assisting our conference in our work and mission.
The Somerset building had become increasingly difficult for conference to manage and maintain. Conference needed to spend approximately $17,000 per year for the past five years for maintenance and renovation of this building, which put considerable strain on the budget. At the same time, it became apparent that the building was being under-utilized much of the time. In addition, World’s Attic indicated it would like more and better retail space as their vision expanded.
Keeping up market-rate real estate in this location, especially when it might not suit conference needs for the longer term, did not seem to be in conference’s best interest. Because of these and other concerns, Leadership Council decided to investigate whether or not our building in Somerset would be saleable.
Council discovered it was. In fact, Council received two offers at about the same time! Leadership Council decided to accept the $120,000 offer from the Zurich Group.
Under terms of the sale agreement, conference will be able to continue in the same space for as long as it wishes in the foreseeable future. Instead of putting money into building maintenance and renovation, conference will pay rent and its share of utilities, a considerable savings. The Zurich Group has also offered conference rent-free space for the first year. Conference only needs to give a 60-day notice if it decides to leave for some reason.
World’s Attic has agreed to a three-year lease for its space. Instead of paying rent to conference, they will now pay the Zurich Group, along with their share of the utilities.
The Leadership Group believes this sale is in the best interest of Allegheny Mennonite Conference. It will help to stabilize our finances but, equally important, give conference “another opportunity to think new thoughts and dream new dreams,” according to moderator J. Lorne Peachey. “In many ways we are at a juncture similar to what we experienced as we adopted a new structure now more than a year ago.”
“Both conference and World’s Attic are grateful to the Zurich Group for their generous offers and for their support as we have worked through the details of this sale,” Lorne continues. “This sale provides both of us the opportunity to take a look at our futures and consider what our mission is and should be in the Somerset community.” J.
