Number One Main — the 11-story building on the high-profile corner of Main and Gervais streets that houses the ABC Columbia television station and The Whig pub — is for sale.

The 41,000-square-foot building, completed in 1914, was the city’s third skyscraper behind the Barringer Building and the Palmetto Building, which are also on Main Street.

The upper floors of the building are leased for offices. It is owned by a local firm, Number One Main.

The asking price for the building is $2.5 million, said Billy Way, a broker with Grubb & Ellis/Wilson Kibler. The building sold for $1.48 million in 2003, according to Richland County property records. It’s market value is listed at $1.8 million.

The building, at 1203 Gervais St., has some challenges: no dedicated parking and a narrow floor plan — only 28 feet.
