Police Station Hits the Market in Mississauga… Asking $1

Published:

A new listing in Mississauga is serving an offer few developers will want to refuse, as a police station has hit the market asking a mere $1.

Indeed, one lonely dollar is the list price for 49 South Service Road… but if we had to place bets, we’d guess the property will go for much more than that.

Described as a “high-exposure development site,” the listing stands at Hurontario and the QEW.

On site is a near-8,200 sq. ft. “institutional building” (the police station), plus parking and green space.

As for 49 South Service Roads, the details are as follows:

Of course, this property (and those like it) won’t go for a looney. But hey, it’s nice to infuse the real estate realm with a little bit of fun before the stress of bidding begins.
