Potential small fleet owners and machine shop jobbers – here is your dream property!

Situated on a full acre of land at the intersection of Gardner and Chouteau Avenues in the bustling East Bottoms area, 5300 Gardner Ave. is presently the home of Kansas City Ice Cream. Company growth, however, is pushing them to find new digs.

If you’re not familiar with the Chouteau and Gardner area of the East Bottoms, it’s an extremely high visibility corner with thousands of vehicles passing there during every hour of the day. No worries on the flooding front, either, as the city recently spent millions of dollars on the Gardner Avenue flood control project to ensure there was little or no water back-up during torrential rainstorms.

The property features two out buildings, one a former service station measuring roughly 2,200 square feet has been completely refurbished recently and sports a new coat of paint and three service bays. Two bays have a 10-foot overhead door and the 14-foot bay is a pull through for extra convenience.

The larger building measures roughly 4,400 square feet and features a five-bay garage area, each with 14-foot doors and large service areas inside. There’s an enclosed office area in the larger building as well that’s completely climate controlled with central heat and air.  A fenced rear lot with a secure gate ensures safe vehicle storage for peace of mind.

The entire property is zoned M2A (the city’s old designation for heavy manufacturing) and could be owner financed for the right potential buyer. The entire package has just been reduced to $325,000 which is a steal for an M2 property with this kind of visibility. Call Vic Cascio at Victor Ross Commercial Real Estate if you’d like to take a closer look at this highly coveted property. He can be reached at (816) 483-0500.
