Houston Chronicle leaves downtown for redone Post building

The empty Houston Post building becomes Chronicle's new home

The Houston Chronicle staff leaves its downtown headquarters for the last 100 years and moves over to the old Houston Post building in southwest Houston.

After the Chron bought the Post in 1995, the latter's newer printing facility was used to publish the paper, while its offices sat empty all these years. After decades, the Chron's owner, Hearst, decided to sell its downtown building, remodel the empty Post space and move the operation.

With journalism flowing through their veins, the Chronicle staff couldn't resist documenting the goodbye process on social media.
