PA Picks – Some Unique Commercial Buildings

Whether it’s an office building or residential house, most properties come with a history of former owners. With that history can come some fascinating revelations on what purpose the building was utilized to serve. This week we’re looking at properties that housed some noteworthy organizations, from explorers to educators.

For those who once dreamed of planning their mission to the moon or rocket to the stars, take a look at the former Nasa Buildings 500/501 in Fairview Park, Ohio being offered by the U.S. General Services Administration (that’s right – NASA!). With two 3-story office buildings boasting 200,000sf of rentable space and approximately 9.8 acres of land, this property is fully loaded with vital amenities including 88 parking spaces, a loading dock, fluorescent lighting, roof mounted zoned HVAC, a sprinkler system, and masonry brick/split rock walls. PA is picking this one for its obvious ‘coolness’ factor – it’s NASA! Auction date is July 30th.

Our next pick accommodated possibly some of the brightest aspiring minds of the future. Check out Motley Auction & Realty Group’s 2-story 24,000sf commercial building in Prince George, Virginia. Sitting on a 1.87-acre lot and zoned General Business, this building once served as a private school facility and a computer software company. Brilliance obviously needs a plethora of working features and this place has got ‘em. First floor features include 11 classrooms (2 with a half bath, 2 with a single vanity and sink), 2 offices, a staff lounge and 6 large open areas separated by partitions; on the second floor you’ll find 15 classrooms, 1 nursery, 2 offices, kitchen area with sink, another 6 large open areas separated by partitions, and a large sanctuary with seating for 63. Did we mention the public utilities available to the site, handicapped accessibility, paved lot with 60+ parking spaces, and sprinkler system throughout? Yup, it’s got that too. PA digs this one for its convenient location, just off Courthouse Road near various shops and restaurants. Auction date is August 2nd.
