The United Way of Cumberland County has partnered with the Cool Spring Downtown District to seek non-binding submissions from interested and qualified buyers to purchase its double lot located at 222 Maiden Lane in Fayetteville. 

The nonprofit group issued a Request for Information on May 4 to begin seeking non-binding submissions from interested and qualified buyers to

purchase its double lot. Responses to this Request for Information (RFI) will inform the United Way of Cumberland County Board of Directors

in its conversation regarding possible sale of the building and property, which features a two-story structure, two parking areas, and creek frontage. 

“When it comes to location, this property is truly one of a kind. United Way has enjoyed this central, easy access space for many years and knows that it can continue to serve as an asset to the downtown community,” shared United Way of Cumberland County Executive Director/CEO Amy Navejas in a press release. 

According to details found in the Request for Information, the building was  originally built in 1966,and is located beside Cross Creek, in downtown Fayetteville, North Carolina. The double lot sits beside the downtown library, Hay Street and the Woodpeckers Baseball Stadium. 

The building is located in the heart of Downtown Fayetteville within walking distance to amenities like Hay Street, the library and Cross Creek. 

The building originally operated as a law firm in the Cumberland County area and for the last 25 years, as home to the United Way of Cumberland County. 

Though its utilization has changed over the years, from thriving law firm to non -profit staple, the parcel’s location has only become more desirable over time.

The proposed building is approximately 6,800 SF of indoor space and includes:

  • Conference room with large windows overlooking Cross Creek
  • Lobby with secured buzzer entry
  • Receptionist area with pass through window
  • Kitchen
  • Corner office with private restroom, view of the creek and exit to balcony Various rooms and offices

decision whether to sell the property. United Way of Cumberland County is the final decision maker regarding this selection.
