A local partnership closed escrow Thursday, Nov. 14, on the historic Tracy Press buildings at 10th and A streets.

The three buildings bought by PWA Properties, a partnership of Bill Pollard, Tim Wheeler and Byron Alvarez, total about 22,000 square feet. The entire property, including parking lots, is 26,553 square feet.

Alvarez, who owns Altera Real Estate, said the Tracy Press newspaper will maintain its home at 131 W. 10th St.

“We definitely want the Tracy Press to remain as one of the tenants in the building,” Alvarez said following the announcement.

Will Fleet, co-owner and publisher of the Tracy Press, who bought the newspaper and property in November 2012, welcomed the sale.

“We are very pleased that the building was purchased by local people who have a stake in the community and care about what happens in downtown Tracy,” Fleet said. “We look forward to working with them as our new landlords.”

PWA Properties, a member of the Tracy City Center Association, plans to turn the Tracy Press buildings into restaurant, office and retail space. Business owners interested in leasing the space can email Alvarez at balvarez71@gmail.com.

"will not affect operations" You mean I still won't receive a newspaper??? Haven't gotten one since April anyhow. Nor any of my neighbors. Anybody want to fill me in about what's going on in this town?

Some of us subscribe to the paper and we get ours all the time. The freebies come after the subscribers. Call the paper for details.

Its interesting how Byron was able to come up with the money to buy into this deal while at the same time having filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy to screw a lot of local folks he owed money to. For those that are interested, just go on the Northern California Bankruptcy District website, type in his name, and up will come his case with a list of all the creditors he went BK on.
