Lee & Associates – North San Diego County Completes the $1.55 Million Sale of Wetlands Adjacent to Buena Vista Lagoon Ecological Reserve
OCEANSIDE, CA—January 12, 2016— Lee & Associates, one of the largest national commercial real estate providers with regional expertise, has completed the acquisition of 3.5 acres of wetlands adjacent to the Buena Vista Lagoon Ecological Reserve and across the street from Buena Vista Audubon Society’s nature center.
Audubon Society, who purchased the property for $1,550,000, plans to restore the vacant land into a ”more viable wildlife habitat”, according to the Buena Vista chapter’s president, Andy Mauro.
“About half of the property is considered wetlands, and the other half is also at that low elevation. It would be relatively easy to restore that property to support the adjacent habitat,” continued Mauro.
Al Apuzzo of Lee & Associate’s – North San Diego County added, “With biological, watershed and coastal commission site challenges limiting profitable development opportunity, the Audubon Society was the perfect buyer for the property.”
Apuzzo, along with partners Tim Moore, Matt Weaver, and Patrick Miller also of Lee & Associates – North San Diego County, represented the seller, MacHutchin Development 401K. Buena Vista Audubon Society, was represented by Land Conservation Brokerage, Inc.
