Overview / Comments

Bay Minette, AL - This 0.74-acre lot on 4-lane Hwy 287/Rabun Road presents an attractive investment opportunity with several key features:

Unzoned and Corner Lot: The property is unzoned, providing flexibility for various types of development. Being a corner lot enhances its visibility and accessibility.

Strategic Location and Growth Area: Located in an area experiencing growth, the property is just a half mile from the certified 3,000-acre South Alabama Mega Site and 0.8 miles from the upcoming $2.5 Billion Novelis Recycling plant. The growth in the vicinity makes it a promising investment opportunity.

Proximity to Mega Site and Novelis Plant: The property's proximity to the South Alabama Mega Site and the Novelis Recycling plant, which is expected to be operational with 1,000+ employees by 2025, positions it well to benefit from the area's industrial base and potential for development.

High Traffic and Visibility: The property enjoys a steady stream of heavy traffic with nearly 10,000 Average Annual Daily Traffic (AADT) on Rabun Road/Hwy 287 and over 20,414 vehicles daily along the interstate. This makes it suitable for various ventures, such as a service station, fast food chain, multi-family complex, hotel, retail center, self-storage facility, RV park, and more.

Proximity to I-65: The lot is just 2 miles from I-65, with over 20,000 vehicles traveling this stretch of the interstate per day. This provides easy access and a convenient commute for visitors and potential customers.

Paved Road Frontage: The property benefits from a $5 million grant to update its infrastructure near the Novelis plant. With 345 feet of access on Rabun Rd/Hwy 287 and Ransom Stewart Ln, you have ample paved road frontage contributing to accessibility and visibility.

No Zoning and Opportunity Zone: The absence of zoning provides freedom for future development possibilities. Being in an Opportunity Zone adds potential tax breaks and incentives, making it an even more attractive investment.

Previous Service Station Infrastructure: The property was previously a service station with 4 underground tanks (2 small, 2 larger). The seller has obtained a quote for their removal, which is negotiable with an offer.

Solid Return on Investment: Considering the growth in Baldwin County, home to 4 of Alabama’s top 10 fastest-growing cities, this vacant lot presents a solid opportunity for investors seeking a favorable return on investment.

This property, with its strategic location, growth potential, and versatile zoning, offers a compelling investment prospect for visionary investors looking to capitalize on the expanding opportunities in Baldwin County. Interested parties are encouraged to explore the possibilities and consider the potential for development in this thriving area..
