According to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA), federal agencies including the Postal Service, are required to take into account the effects of their undertakings on historic properties, and afford the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, the State Historic Preservation Officer, the public, and other consulting parties, a reasonable opportunity to comment on those undertakings. Consistent with the disposition of its properties and as required by Section 106 of NHPA, the Postal Service is serving notice of this undertaking and is seeking comments from the public on the disposition of three properties: the Main Post Office, the Truck Terminal Annex, and the fourteen acre parking lot.

The Truck Terminal Annex building, constructed in 1962, is situated on the southeast corner of Chestnut and 30th streets, and it extends a full city block south to Walnut Street and east to Schuylkill Avenue. The building is a three-story structure and measures 171,902 gross square feet. The third piece of property in this disposition of Postal Service properties is a fourteen acre parking lot that is situated south of the Truck Terminal Annex building, south of Walnut Street, east of the Schuylkill Expressway and Amtrak railroad, and west of rail High Line. In May 2007, the Postal Service plans to convey the Main Post Office to the University of Pennsylvania or its assignee, and the Truck Terminal Annex building and the fourteen acres of land VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:32 Apr 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 to the University of Pennsylvania.
