SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that this November, the city’s 102-year-old Santa Fe station will be sold to a private investor.

The newspaper cites an officials from Voit Real Estate Services, a company that managed the sale, saying they aren't able to reveal the name of the buyer, but that the building has been up for sale for approximately a month.

The sale wouldn't affect the Amtrak service at the station, the newspaper reports, but future renovations may include retail or dining space. Amtrak California’s Pacific Surfliner trains serve the station.

The station's current owners, ProLogis, acquired the building in 2005 when it absorbed Catellus, a real estate subsidiary of the former Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway.

The Santa Fe depot was built in 1914 and quickly became a center of transportation, particularly when it served as a hub for deploying soldiers during World War I and World War II.

The building's status as a nationally registered historic site will protect it from demolition or renovations that deviate from historical standards.
