Dallas Jail – UNDER CONTRACT

108 East Trade Street Dallas , NC 28034
  • $125,000

Description

One of the most high profile and distinctive buildings in downtown Dallas, only 30 minutes from Charlotte! Amazing adaptive reuse space and ideal for those looking for an urban feel within the charm of a small southern town.

Architectural and Historical Information

The Dallas Jail is a contributing structure in the Dallas National Register Historic District, and eligible for state and federal historic rehabilitation tax credits. The jail’s unique interior features include barrel-shaped corrugated metal ceilings, interesting markings on the jail walls, and a centered metal spiral staircase.  It was built, at least in part, with the labor of enslaved people. As a locally designated landmark, the property’s new buyer is eligible to apply for a 50% ad valorem property tax deferral.

The building has a structural engineering report and the current owner is undertaking approximately $19,000 in exterior improvements, including installation of French drains, piping all downspouts away from the foundation, and fabrication and installation of new downspouts. The jail prime for adaptive reuse and ideal for those looking for an urban feel within the charm of a small southern town. The yard is ample enough for sensitively designed parking.

The 1973 National Register nomination describes the Dallas Historic District and Court Square as having “a quiet grouping of well-preserved commercial and residential structures around the shaded courthouse square… an idyllic small-town atmosphere recalling the slower pace of the late nineteenth century.” Downtown Dallas retains much of this atmosphere today.

Area Information

Dallas is experiencing a boom and the property is located in the heart of the quaint Dallas Courtsquare — the former Court House (built in 1847) is within walking distance and has been transformed into a first class museum. A new restaurant being planned nearby. Dallas is well situated within an easy drive to either Gastonia or Charlotte (just 30 mins) and minutes away from Highway 321. The nearby Smyre-Pasour House is another great restoration opportunity, also for sale through Preservation North Carolina.
