ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Green Jeans Farmery, the innovative shipping container development near Carlisle NE and Interstate 40, is being sold.
Green Jeans is being listed on www.loopnet.com at $5.2 million for the 6,100-square-foot, 1.49-acre development.
Green Jeans developer Roy Solomon said despite “a lot of interest,” a buyer has not yet emerged. He is “hoping for an in-state person because that is the vision.”
Solomon said that above all, he is a “creator” who wants to follow his passion, which is what Green Jeans is built on. “My passion is to create and try to be an advocate for small businesses, and I was able to do that,” said Solomon. “I’m always going to be very proud of what we did at Green Jeans.”
All 12 tenants of Green Jeans are local businesses, and the development is currently at full capacity.
Solomon said he is positive the sale will not effect the tenants, something he was concerned about when making the decision to sell. “(The tenants) all have solid leases that give them protection. That is what’s important. They are the heartbeat of the entire thing.”
