Downtown Post Office Could Relocate

Ebay

The future of the post office building in Downtown New Bedford is unclear.

Joseph Mulvey, a Real Estate Specialist with the U.S. Postal Service, has been in contact with city officials, indicating the historic building is too large for what services are provided there, and it’s becoming too costly to maintain.

City Council President Joe Lopes says the downtown Post Office was once the mailing hub of New Bedford, but now all the sorting and heavy lifting takes place in the North End.

Lopes says that Mulvey is looking to relocate the services of the downtown Post Office into a store front in the downtown area. Ideally, the marble building on Pleasant Street would be leased to another government agency.

The City Council is looking to meet with Mulvey to discuss further options.
