Navy to Try Selling Ingleside Facility a Second Time
- August 14, 2011
The Navy will attempt to sell the 155-acre electromagnetic reduction facility at the former Naval Station Ingleside, Texas, using a sealed bid process, officials announced Thursday.
This will be the Navy’s second attempt to sell the property, which consists of 105 acres of submerged land, 46 acres of upland area and a four-acre easement and right-of-way to Highway FM 1069. Last fall, the federal government held an online auction which failed to generate any bids.
Due to a recent uptick in interest to redevelop the property, though, the Navy is confident that this sale will produce multiple bids. “We look forward to successfully completing this disposal action this fall so that the new owner can begin economic redevelopment and job creation on this waterfront property,” said Thuane Fielding, base closure manager for Ingleside.
Bids for the site, located 18 miles northeast of Corpus Christi, are due Sept. 15. Bidders can visit the property on Aug. 23. For more information, contact Ms. Fielding at 843/743-2133. The invitation for bids is available on the Navy BRAC Program Management Office website.
