Seattle Federal Reserve Bank Building: Got 5 Million Dollars? Buy This Bank!

seattle bankIt’s not everyday that you see an entire bank up for auction, but oddly enough this one in Seattle is currently available for online bidding! Located on Second Avenue between Spring and Madison street in the central business district, this commercial property was originally built back in 1950. Oddly enough, it is the former Seattle Branch Office of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. It is also comprised of six floors, has over 100,000 gross square feet of space, and includes a two story vault. The building itself takes up one half city block and has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places. There will be at least two inspection tours of the building that will be held in January so we urge all potential interested parties to activate their free trial now in order to learn more about it. Online bidding will start at 5 million dollars and will conclude in exactly 51 days, 17 hours, and 48 minutes from now.



Herring-Hall Marvin Antique Vault Door: Keep It Secret, Keep It Safe

vaultLook for a way to lock up your valuables? Well maybe this next auction can help you with that. Currently available for online bid via a popular government surplus website is this antique vault door made by Herring-Hall Marvin. This laminated 4″ step jamb bank vault door is approximately 100 years old and was built sometimes in the late 19th century/early 20th century. It has a painted grille gate and is stated to be in good working condition. It measures 31.5 inches wide and weighs 8,000 to 9,000 pounds, so moving it might be costly if you win the auction (so keep that in mind!). Unfortunately this vault door is not ADA compliant, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it for your own personal use. The current asking price for it is $1,500 with no bids as of yet. This auction will be ending in exactly 11 days, 1 hour, and 30 minutes, so if you’d like to learn more about it, then all you have to do is activate your free GovernmentAuctions.org trial account!
