Developed Commercial Property in Manson’s Landing
Here’s an opportunity to acquire one of the very few commercially zoned properties on Cortes Island. Located in the Manson’s Landing commercial centre, this 2.6 acre property has approximately 272ft of frontage exposure on Sutil Point Rd with a gentle grade rising up to the back of the property. This fully serviced property has been developed with a very substantial top-grade commercial 1800sqft building, constructed only 10 years ago for its original and only use as a Coastal Community Credit Union.
This is a very attractive, architecturally designed building with appealing features and finish inside and out. The overall quality and infrastructure surpasses that of anything else on the island. There is a substantial paved parking area and driveway with lighting. Infrastructure and equipment incorporated into this building are over the top. They include a fully automated back-up power system (Generac propane generator), commercial HVAC climate control system, state of the art security system, 400 amp service, water filtration including UV, an approved septic system and a drilled well for domestic water. There is a bank-grade commercial vault.
To complement future business use there is fibre optic wire to the building and data to various workspaces. There are also fixed sign boxes, supporting posts and pylons on the building as well as at the roadside of the property.
This property and building could easily accommodate a number of future uses, and there is ample room for further development. It presents an opportunity for the right buyer. Given the fact that this was a specific use build this property is being offered at well below improvement replacement cost.
Cortes Island has a population of around 1000 people. A relaxed rural lifestyle is evident throughout. It has general store services, marina services and a public school. The island is part of the Discovery Islands and is considered a major gateway to the very popular Desolation Sound region; well known for its waterfalls, secret coves, rock cliffs and tranquil natural beauty with plenty of opportunity for wildlife viewing, including bald eagles and bears. For the outdoor enthusiast Cortes Island is truly one of the best jumping off points for a variety of outdoor activities including fishing, prawning, crabbing, kayaking and hiking. This area enjoys a nice temperate climate and the waters here are warmer than in most other areas on the coast.
Access to Cortes Island is a 45-minute trip via regularly scheduled ferry service from Heriot Bay on Quadra Island. Quadra Island is a short 10-minute ferry ride from Campbell River. During the summer months there is also regular float plane service from Vancouver and Seattle directly into Cortes Bay.
