||The lot size is 8.7 acres and is topographically flat. A creek borders the property along the eastern border and establishes a portion of the property in a 300 year flood plain. Locationally, the property is ideally situated in downtown Bristol but is large enough to serve multiple purposes. At one time, this site was strongly considered for the new downtown public library and met the qualifications, as such. The real value in the site is the location and size of the lot. Mixed use development or professional office would be perfect here. Also note that Food City has plans to build a new store adjacent to this property which makes this site ideal for additional retail.
