The old Chicago post office, over the top of the Eisenhower Expressway, is going on the auction block.The suggested opening bid for the 3 million square foot building is just $300,000 and it could sell for less.

The postal service has tried traditional methods to sell the property and failed.

The massive facility was built in 1932 and has been vacant since1995.
