Ready for your next HTC project? We've rounded up a few buildings for sale that we think would be great candidates. All are listed on the National Register, making the first step (Part 1/A) a cinch! Read on to discover your next HTC deal:
Nueces County Courthouse, Corpus Christi
Year of construction: 1914
Existing square footage: 80,000
Constructed in 1914, the Nueces County courthouse has been vacant for decades. Earlier this year, a group of developers had a hotel project in the works, but the project recently fell through. Bonus: it's also located in an Opportunity Zone. Read more about it here. RFPs are due to Nueces County on December 18.
Why Corpus Christi? It's a coastal tourist destination with a robust downtown, giving it the feel of a big city.
The Glove Factory, Mount Vernon
Year of construction: 1953
Existing square footage: 28,000
A contributing building in the recently-listed Mount Vernon Commercial Historic District, this industrial space features a wide open interior with numerous possibilities, such as a restaurant and mixed-use, a brewery, school, or apartments. A perk is the large lot which could accommodate new construction. Mount Vernon is centrally-located in a growing East Texas wine region and attracts thousands of visitors each year. Read more about the building here.
"The Old Convent," Victoria
Year of construction: 1904
Existing square footage: 44,000
This impressive edifice served as the Incarnate Word convent until 1964. Victoria is a zoning-free city so the possibilities with the building are essentially limitless. There has been interest in the past few years to convert the building to apartments or a hotel, but nothing has moved forward. Read more about the building here.
