Herhold: The closing of the legendary Blue Cube By Scott Herhold San Jose Mercury News Columnist (CA) July 28, 2010Before a color guard and the wife of a hero, they said goodbye Wednesday to a famous artifact of space and the Cold War - Sunnyvale's "Blue Cube," the windowless blue box that housed secret operations for four decades.
Formally, it was the closure of the Onizuka Air Force Station, whose operations are being moved to Vandenberg Air Force Base in Southern California.
...The city of Sunnyvale, which will inherit the bulk of the property after the Air Force vacates it next year, has talked about converting the land into a cluster of auto dealerships, save for one building claimed by the Department of Veterans Affairs. If that happens, the Cube would probably be demolished. But the auto dealership idea seems unlikely in the recession. And just how a fortresslike building from the 1960s could be reused perplexes Sunnyvale officials.
