Over 1300′ Hwy 264 Road Front – Development Potential – Great Area Economy
This Pitt County property is less than 2 miles from the hot development zone of HWY 264 and Greenville Boulevard NE. This property is zoned RA and could be rezoned and molded into a commercial property. It is within eyesight of “Prime” Greenville development and commercial property. This property is a “blank canvas” and can be molded and developed all or in part to fit any buyers budget. Development cost together with land purchase costs could be dramatically less than current per acre costs of “finished” properties within eye site. Significant road frontage westbound makes it ideal and advantageous for retail business development if you want to be the “FIRST STOP” for retail traffic coming from the Washington area. Median traffic crossovers and deceleration lanes are already perfectly placed to make ingress and egress efficient and safe regardless of the direction you are heading. The timber was cut and not replanted. The new growth along with buffer zones of mature timber provide ideal habitat for white tail deer, bear, turkey and small game. A path runs down the center of the property to the creek and turns and runs east and west the entire length of the creek. A power-line easement crosses a small piece of the back north west corner of the property and is shown in the aerials. Read below about what Greenville and Pitt County have to offer. A diverse and healthy local economy awaits you and your company.
Pitt County, also known as the Greenville, NC MSA, is one of the fastest growing urban centers in North Carolina. It is also a leading retail center in eastern North Carolina and ranks as one of only a dozen billion dollar retail markets in the state. The local economy is well diversified with industries in advanced manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, life science, and food processing. Agriculture is still a strong contributor to the economy – tobacco, corn, soybeans, wheat, peanuts, eggs, livestock, poultry and vegetables are the primary agricultural products. Major employers include: East Carolina University (education), Vidant Medical Center (health care), Patheon (pharmaceutical manufacturing), DSM Dyneema (chemical manufacturing), Hyster-Yale (lift trucks), Grady-White (boats), ASMO (electric motors), Attends Healthcare Products (paper products), Mestek (steam unit heaters), and The Roberts Company, Inc. (metal fabrication).
The area’s educational system is the pride of eastern North Carolina. The public school system receives extensive local support, reflected in modern classroom facilities, a wide range of extra-curricular activities, and student performance above state and national averages on standardized achievement tests.
One of the most unique characteristics of the area is the wide assortment of leisure and cultural activities. Parks, rivers, golf courses, historic old towns, coastal sounds, and the famous beaches of the Outer Banks offer many recreational outlets in addition to organized activities sponsored by local recreation departments. The mild climate allows residents the opportunity to enjoy outdoor recreational activities throughout the year.
