One of about two dozen military command centers operated by North American Aerospace Defense Command during the Cold War is available to anyone interested in purchasing two windowless buildings in Cicero, N.Y. The SAGE — Semi-Automated Ground Environment — complex at the former Hancock Air Force Base has 175,000 square feet of space and is being offered for $895,000, reports the Post-Standard. The buildings — which have two-foot-thick reinforced concrete walls and one-foot-thick concrete floors — were originally used to track Soviet bombers and assign jets and missiles to intercept them. After the military closed the complex in 2001, the General Services Administration disposed of it. The property now is part of Hancock Airpark, an industrial park being developed by a local economic development entity.
