Building up for sale, but you must move it
If youre in the market for an 11,200-square-foot building, Garry Skakun has a deal for you.
The only catch is, youll have to find a place to put the structure.
Skakun, who is general manager at Honda Red Deer, is marketing the former Red Deer Suzuki building at 1809 49th Ave.
That dealership was transferred to CARS RV and Marine Superstore in early 2005 and relocated to the north side of the city.
Honda Red Deer purchased the property, which is adjacent to its own premises, with plans to expand there. But the steel and metal building doesnt fit into its plans, said Skakun.
The decision was made to sell the approximately 12-year-old structure, with a condition that it be disassembled and trucked to a new location.
Its just like a big puzzle, I guess, said Skakun, adding that it would be a good buy for the right person.
The building will be a fraction of the cost of buying a new structure, he said, estimating the price for a comparable building developed from scratch at around $1 million.
Everything is there, he said. Everything from furnaces to plumbing to doors.
Honda Red Deer advertised the building in Saturdays Advocate and was receiving inquiries. Skakun was optimistic a buyer would be found.
He would not elaborate on Honda Red Deers plans for the site, but said development there is expected to occur later this year.
Superior Harness & Saddle and The Bridal Path currently occupy portions of the building.
