Town of Robbins seeks proposals for old police building

By Staff Report, posted 2 months ago

The Town of Robbins seeks parties interested in a lease, lease/purchase or purchase option for reuse of the three-story Robbins Historic Police Building (CBD zoning), located at 110 S. Middleton Street in Robbins, within the downtown business district. The town encourages submittals from businesses and individuals with an interest in retaining the character of the NC Works Progress Administration building built circa 1936-1938 building while adaptively reusing it as a viable business or community resource venture.

The Town of Robbins has a growing population of 1579 residents. Recent residential growth includes military families, retirees and commuters from Randolph and Chatham County or Southern parts of Moore County. The combination of growth and renovation is a strong catalyst for economic development.

The building is three stories totaling 9,583 sq/ft on .22 acres. It has associated parking and is adjacent to a town parking lot.  The property is served by town water and sewer service. Nearby NC HWY 24/27 has an average daily traffic count of 11,000 vehicle trips per day. The building also enjoys NC Hwy 705 frontage which flows through downtown Robbins.

The property was abated of asbestos in 2024 by O.C.A. LLC and a new roof was also installed. An asbestos inspection and air monitoring report has been completed and is readily available. The abatement included an interior demolition to the studs; plumbing and electrical is still emplaced. The gutted building is ready to rebuild while preserving the remaining unique features of the structure. 

A tour of the building may be arranged by contacting Robbins Town Hall at 910-948-2431. For additional questions, please contact Clint Mack at

Proposals should be submitted by July 1st, 2024 and will be reviewed by the committee with an anticipated decision to move forward with one interested party by Sept. 16, 2024. Highly qualified applicants and potential ventures will be asked to present their plan at a scheduled public meeting following the deadline. Proposals may be emailed to or mailed to Jessica Coltrane, Town of Robbins, P.O. Box 296, Robbins, NC  27325.
