EDRON, LLC. - Purchase and Sale of EDRON, LLC. - NW 600 Block

 

Mr. Max Eida, President of EDRON, LLC has sent a request for consideration to the CRA Board for the purchase the following six (6) properties in the NW 600 Block.

 

                     625 W. Atlantic Avenue (PCN: 12-43-46-16-01-012-0030) - EDRON, LLC Owned

                     633 W. Atlantic Avenue (PCN: 12-43-46-16-01-012-0050) - EDRON, LLC Owned

                     643 W. Atlantic Avenue (PCN: 12-43-46-16-01-012-0040) - EDRON, LLC Owned

                     622 NW 1st Street (PCN: 12-43-46-17-01-012-0230) - EDRON, LLC Owned

                     23 NW 7th Avenue (PCN: 12-43-46-17-01-012-0260) - EDRON, LLC Owned

                     NW 7th Avenue (PCN: 12-43-46-16-01-012-0010) - EDRON, LLC Owned

 

The CRA has requested appraisals from Anderson & Carr, Inc. and Allied Appraisals Services, Inc. which will be completed on November 15, 2019.

 

This request for consideration comes at a time where the redevelopment of the block is in the conceptual stages and where acquiring the additional properties may allow for additional compatible and congruent development with the potential for highest and best use of the land. Although the CRA owns several properties within the block, the redevelopment is limited due to the size and configuration of the currently owned CRA parcels. Acquiring the additional parcels to create an assemblage, specifically fronting Atlantic Avenue would achieve the goals and objectives of the CRA Redevelopment Plan.
