Santa Fe BuildingEdit profile
The Santa Fe Building is one of the oldest buildings in downtown Amarillo, Texas, U.S.A.. It was completed in January 18, 1930 and had the regional offices of Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway company. The Amarillo office of the railroad company supervised more than 5,800 miles (9,334 km) of railroads. Brennan Construction Company of Amarillo and Dallas built the building from 1928 to 1930 with the original construction cost of US$1.5 million. The building was vacant more than a decade in the 1990s, until Potter County bought it for $426,000 to gain new office spaces in 1995. It was reopened in 2000, after Potter County approximately spent $14.1 million on renovating the building.
