The property is a 3.8± acre site at the northeast corner of Mebane and Hawkins Streets in central Burlington, improved with a two story-office building with stucco exterior finish having a gross area of 26,000±SF. The building was originally constructed as a school in 1942, and renovated for office use about 1985, with about 15,372±SF of rentable area.
The site has frontage on 4 streets: Ireland Street, N Mebane, Hawkins, and Broad Street. The building is on a 2.66± acre site with 279’ of Hawkins Street frontage, 400’ of Broad Street frontage, and connected to N Mebane by a 121’ long and 50’ wide strip. There are two unimproved tracts fronting N Mebane on either side of the access strip from the building site. One of these is a 32,000±SF outparcel with over 380’ of N Mebane and Ireland frontage. The other outparcel is 21,000±SF, with 164’ of N Mebane frontage and 100’ of frontage on Hawkins Street. All utilities are available to the site, which is zoned O-I. The building site also includes a 26,000±SF paved parking area, which appears to be more than adequate for the facility.
The building consists of a two-story area, plus an annex onto the first floor which is one story. It has 27 rentable office units, ranging from 132±SF to 2,086±SF, for total rentable area of approximately 15,732±SF.  Two of the units have been combined to create a single unit. As of May 2017, approximately half of the units were occupied. Approximately 9,966±SF of the rentable area is on the first floor, and about 5,406±SF is on the second floor. There is also a 2,200±SF basement area accessible only by ladder from a nook in the lobby. There are two men’s and women’s restrooms on each floor of the two story area, plus four more restrooms in the first floor annex. The two-story area has a pitched shingled roof, and the annex area has a flat asphalt roof. The tax value of the property is $521,000 and taxes for the past several years have remained in the $4,500 per year range.
