State puts former Charlotte Correctional Facility on the market

As part of North Carolina’s plan to sell off state-owned properties, the state said Tuesday that a 49-acre tract in southwest Charlotte, once the site of a correctional facility, is going on the market.

The former Charlotte Correctional Facility at 4101 Meadow Oak Road is a largely wooded property, with several buildings tucked into the southwest corner of West Tyvola Road and Billy Graham Parkway. The correctional facility closed in 2011.

The property is near Charlotte Douglas International Airport and the site of Sealed Air Corp.’s new headquarters, under construction at the Lake Pointe Corporate Center.

Gov. Pat McCrory said a personnel training center in downtown Raleigh is also being listed, with the state seeking a long-term ground lease.

“Selling these properties is part of our strategy to reform how state government occupies space for greater efficiency, productivity and cost control,” McCrory said in a statement.
