Get ready to wipe away the rest of those pesky precious memories . . . the last piece of AstroWorld is up for sale.
The Fort Worth investment company that purchased the storied Six Flags site in 2010 — and sold roughly half of it to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in December 2012 — has put the final 44-acres of hallowed ground on the market.
According to the listing from commercial realty mega-firm HFF, property owner The Mallick Group requests complete confidentially from interested parties . . . Oh yeah, and no outlet malls or adult-oriented businesses either, according to the brochure.
CultureMap was unable to reach the HFF broker for an official asking price. Since the Rodeo purchased its 48 acres for $42.8 million ($891,600 an acre), that would put the remaining parcel at around $39.2 million under a similar pricing scale.
Swamplot — which has taken to calling the vacant lot "HalfstroWorld" and first reported the sale — notes that a potential METRORail stop is being considered for another 6.3-acre plot located at the southeast corner of Mallick's property.
