Grand Ave. and the parking lot fronts Austin Avenue. 

This property presented a value-add, prime redevelopment opportunity that garnered interest from several local individuals,” Warnke said. “The location along heavily traveled Grand Avenue was a key selling point. It could either be renovated to remain as a banquet hall, or demolished to make way for a residential building or a small strip center with two or three retail tenants.”
