The ArtWorks building near Lee Circle is up for sale once again. The $25 million, 93,000-square-foot building was built as a creative space for artists, but closed its doors 2 years ago after having financial trouble. Now, two groups are bidding to purchase the space.

Stirling Properties has been awarded a contract to manage the Taylor Energy Building on Lee Circle. The 30,000-square-foot building is owned by the Taylor Foundation.

Terms were not disclosed in the announcement on Monday.
