GRAND JUNCTION — Officials have paused deciding what to do with an unfinished administration building at a Colorado airport on the possibility that it could be utilized by the Bureau of Land Management.

The Daily Sentinel reported Thursday that staff of the Grand Junction Regional Airport had planned to recommend demolishing the building adjacent to the main terminal.

The recommendation was halted after the bureau announced last month that it would move its headquarters to the city.

Construction on the building began in 2013. Work stopped after the project lost its federal funding, leaving just a shell.

Airport Executive Director Angela Padalecki says the building could be an ideal home for the bureau.

She says if the bureau isn't interested, the airport has no immediate need for the building.
