Close to CSX and I - 75! Plenty of water and new sanitary sewers.
The transition of North Baltimore High School being part of the business district and near to town-center, will come to an end on Saturday, as the empty lots where NBHS used to stand will be sold to the highest bidder.
This is PRIME Real Estate in an area with tremendous potential, due to it's proximatey to the CSX Northwest Ohio Intermodal Railyard, which is just two miles to the west. In addition, there has already been much new development in Downtown NB (several eateries), which is just ONE block to the east. This property could qualify for Downtown Development considerations/funding! Walking distance to eateries (eight), recreation (bowling/golf/biking/fishing), entertainment (theater), shopping (several) and parking (free), this parcel stands out and screams for someone with vision and some money to take advantage of this potential!
The possbilities for condominiums, shopping and retail and commerical/office complex use, as well as other creative development possibilities, even lodging (why not a nice motel?) should not be ruled out! Utilities are already in place. Zoning should be favorable. Development funds from the state and feds is probably out there!
The public auction will be conducted at 201 South Main Street, NB, at the Board of Education Office, starting at 10:00 a.m.
Additional information concerning the public auction, the property, and a copy of the Conditions of Sale may be obtained from Marlene North, Superintendent, telephone (419) 257-3531.
