The newspaper has been in the same art deco structure near City Hall for more than 80 years. Now, Tribune Media plans to sell it to a Canadian developer called the Onni Group. They won’t say for how much. If the deal goes through, the Times headquarters could be renovated into a new office and retail complex. It’s not clear if the paper would stay or move.
