Gettysburg, Pa. (PRWEB) June 07, 2012

Offering more than 128 acres of developable property and an existing 125,000-square-foot facility, the former home of Boyds Bear Country, once the flagship retail outlet for Boyds Collection Ltd., in Gettysburg, Pa., is currently on the real estate market for $2.5 million. Gettysburg-based real estate agent David Sites is representing the property on behalf of Prudential Bob Yost-Sites Homesale. Local zoning for the site allows mixed-use commercial development on the property.

“Gettysburg, Pa. is a wonderful place to do business, and this property offers a great location and existing infrastructure for business development,” Prudential’s David Sites said.

“Because of the mixed-use commercial zoning for the property, it’s an attractive piece of ground for those who want to create a new business here or move an existing business to this location,” he continued. “Gettysburg and Adams County boast strong business development resources, and the entire Gettysburg community is supportive of our locally-based businesses.”

Potential uses for the property include: mixed-use development, multi-family, office, manufacturing, retail food service, hotel, spa, retail, medical, educational, government, senior housing, recreation and entertainment. The existing buildings on the site, which include a five-story, 125,000-square-foot structure, can be retrofitted and reused by most retailers, schools, institutions, wholesalers and corporate entities.

The property is located at 75 Cunningham Rd. in Gettysburg, the governmental seat of Adams County, Pa. The famed Civil War Battle of Gettysburg was fought here in July 1863 and is regarded as a turning point in the Civil War. Harrisburg, the state capital, is located 40 miles north of Gettysburg. Conveniently located within a 1 1/2-hour driving distance of major cities including Baltimore, Md. and Washington, D.C., the property is easily accessible via Route 15.

Boyds Collection Ltd., recognized for its collectible teddy bears, giftware and collectible home décor items, had operated the popular Boyds Bear Country attraction on the property from 2002-2011. The facility closed to the public in January 2011.
