Never Before Available – 10 Acre Forest Service Owned Parcel For Sale | A Legacy Development Opportunity

Call For Offers – 7/5/2013

A nearly unmatched location in Jackson, this parcel is located at the gateway to the town of Jackson directly on the main highway from both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and is perfectly situated for upscale mixed-use development. The property is within walking distance to the town square, 5 minutes to Grand Teton National Park and borders the famous and beautiful National Elk Refuge.

It also located directly on the Teton County pathways – an extensive network of bike paths allowing for non-car travel all through town and all the way into the center of Grand Teton National Park.

This location is a “logical place for lodging uses in Jackson”.  The use of in-town land for this type of development can be a popular decision as it helps to keep development close to town core leaving the surrounding open spaces undeveloped to protect wildlife and view corridors.

Choosing Jackson Sotheby’s International Realty to list this Forest Service Parcel went outside the Forest Service’s usual method of selling land. This method was chosen due to the advantages of having a local broker with knowledge of the community.
