Roanoke sells unused land for $1.35 million

Posted: Updated:

Land which was once intended to rebuild victory stadium in Roanoke will now be sold to a local car dealership.

This sale recoups more than $1.35 million dollars which will go back to the city.

The land on Courtland Avenue has been vacant since 2003. Monday night after a public hearing in Roanoke City the council unanimously voted on selling the land to Haley Toyota in Roanoke.

No public comments were made at the meeting either for or against the sale.

The land will now be rezoned to allow the car dealership.

Vice Mayor Rosen says Haley Toyota approached the city more than six months ago wanting to expand their business.

Rosen says their business outgrew their lot.

He says the deal will boost the automotive sales in the city, help expand a local business and build more tax revenue for the city.

The sale goes into effect immediately.
