Purchase of Former Frenchtown Road Sawmill

A roughly 50-acre tract on Frenchtown Road that was once the site of a sawmill specializing in the milling of old pine and cypress lumber has been sold for $720,0000, as was recently reported by Daily Report. Jake’s Vintage Trucks Inc., represented by former Amedisys CEO Bill Borne, sold the tract to Adventure Investment LLC, represented by Chris Castleberry. The property consists of 49.76 acres and includes a 17,000-square-foot office warehouse, as well as two covered sheds measuring about 12,000 square feet each. The buildings are not in good condition and will require some rehabilitation. Jonathan Starns and Travis Marshall with Donnie Jarreau Commercial Real Estate brokered the transaction, which closed June 13. Most of the site was formerly used to store wood and brick product that was salvaged from old buildings. The new owners will use the facility to house their landscape business, GreenSeasons. “It was a great deal for the purchaser. They can use the sheds for storage of their equipment and the 49.76 acre site will allow them to store plants and landscape materials for their growing business,” says Starns. “Now that the Central Thruway has connected to Frenchtown Road, the property is very accessible.”
