BLM office: $2.1 million lease

About 30 local employees from the BLM are slated to move into their new office in Baker City this September.

The workers had been sharing office space for the past nine years with their counterparts from another federal agency, the Forest Service, in a compound of modular buildings at 3285 11th St.

The new BLM office is close — just across H Street to the north on the former site of the New Tribes Mission.

Don Thompson of North Bend said he and his brother, Dan, who are partners in a development company and construction firm, bought the Baker City property late last year.

The sales price was $300,000, according to the Baker County Assessor’s Office.

Don Thompson said he and his brother bought the former New Tribes site after reading a prospectus from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), a federal agency that helps secure office space for other agencies, including the BLM.

“The focus was to develop office space for the BLM,” Thompson said.

The GSA has signed a 10-year lease for $2.1 million for about 7,000 square feet of office space, said Stephanie Kenitzer, public affairs manager for the agency’s Northwest/Arctic Region.
