Unique opportunity to purchase a commercially zoned vacant lot in the destination city of Avalon on beautiful Santa Catalina Island. This empty parcel is inspiration for your brilliant business idea! Ideally located next to the new museum, your future customers are waiting!
Commercial property in a prime location is rarely available for lease, let alone offered for sale. This lot is the perfect purchase for the entrepreneur or investor interested in building a dream business on the island.
Located in the heart of Avalon, this 7,302 square foot lot is less than one block up from Crescent Avenue, the commercial center of town. It is directly adjacent to one of the City’s most popular attractions, the all-new Catalina Island Museum (completed in 2016).
The lot is zoned ‘special commercial’ allowing multiple opportunities to develop. Examples of principal uses include retail, professional building, hospitality, and more. With procurement of a Conditional Use Permit from the city of Avalon, additional uses could include a hotel or short- or long-term residential multi-unit.
Per public records, lot dimensions are 50’ (Metropole frontage) x 156’ X 139’. The frontage on Calle del Sol is 52’. The parcel has recently been significantly improved: debris & foliage removed, level pad created, electricity brought to site, erosion control efforts completed. Buyer will be responsible for procuring water allocation rights. Avalon is currently in Stage 1 water rationing.
This is an extraordinary opportunity to purchase a prime commercial lot in near build-ready condition. Large commercial lots in Avalon almost never come up for sale. Timing is everything.
