YWCA Tampa Bay puts building on block for $1.5M

YWCA Tampa Bay has listed its colonial-style headquarters in St. Petersburg for sale for $1.5 million. The two-story brick building at 655 Second Ave. S was built in 1924 as the Palms Funeral Home.

The YWCA moved in nearly 23 years ago and was willed the property in 2003. It once housed Adolescent Pregnant and Parenting Services, along with administrative offices. Since Pinellas County schools took over that program in recent years, it has been "just a handful of employees, rambling around in this big old building," said YWCA of Tampa Bay CEO Joyce Pritchett.

"We decided we would sell it and put the money into programs," she said. The 10,232 square feet of office space includes five bathrooms.
