It's gonna be interesting with what happens to the remaining areas around College Town.
Curious as well. Does anyone know if the Boosters or another developer has approached the current warehouse building owners about purchasing?
It is my understanding that one of the owners of a few lots there basically wants insane amounts of money for it so he won't do anything. Basically loaded and has little incentive to sell for a reasonable market rate.
Once again, I have to drop knowledge on the rumor-laden Warchant TC. The owner of the printing house on the right is a friend. He was offered a sum of money for the property about 2 years ago in preparation for College Town. The amount was not even sufficient to move the huge industrial equipment inside, much less help him re-start his business in a new location. Oh, and he's a Seminole fan too, so let's not treat him like he's a gator or something.
I know the guys son, Joe
To be clear, the person wasn't saying anything necessarily about the Duraprint building/owner. The question was pertaining to the entire area around College Town, not just the closest lots. And if you think about it, the poster was most likely not talking about Duraprint because they stated an owner of "a few lots" did not want to sell. Duraprint would just be one lot unless the owner also has separate lots in the area.
