New Jersey's largest newspaper is selling its building.

Publisher Richard Vezza says the Star-Ledger put its Newark headquarters on the market about 3 days ago. The building was built in 1966 and has housed the paper through a myriad changes to the city.

Vezza says the paper will lease office space and that selling the building is a money-saving measure. He says new offices must have adequate parking and ideally would be close to public transit.

The Star-Ledger has threatened to shut down operations by the end of the year if it does not reach contract concessions with its unions.

Vezza says a potential shutdown and the sale of the building are not related.
