Revitalization in Pittsboro

Pittsboro, NC - The old car dealership repair shop in downtown Pittsboro is for sale. No - there are no environmental problems. The EPA inspected and approved it for sale after some contaminated dirt (oil, gas, etc.) was removed several years ago.

Yes, I completely agree - its an eyesore. But it is for sale and until it is sold, nothing will be done to fix that.

Currently the building is being used as a race shop for our son, Michael. When the building is sold, we will build a new race shop for him. Until then it is a great place for him to work on his race car and truck.

Some potential buyers are looking at the building and may buy it. Negotiations are ongoing. Last we heard they were discussing buying the parking lot behind the building from the Presbyterian Church so a fire escape could be built and possible parking spaces created. The fire escape is required by code. I think parking is also a city code consideration. I have no idea what these potential buyers are planning for the building.

We would love to sell it!! Maybe someone will used the building for store and/or restaurant space below and office or residential condos above. It is a large building and has a lot of potential.

Anyone interested in buying it should contact us. Until then, Michael is happy using it as his race shop.
