Four parcels of land owned by Sedgwick County were sold at auction at noon Thursday, generating more than $1 million in revenue for the county.
Three parcels were sold together – approximately 317 acres – for $1.43 million, just north of the northeast Sedgwick County Park, at 77th and 127th streets. A fourth 43-acre parcel, south of the park, sold for $94,600, totaling $1,524,600.
The land sold for $4,235 an acre.
McCurdy Auction was selected through a competitive bid process to auction the land. After costs of sale and closing expenses are subtracted, the county is expected to net approximately $1.38 million.
Fifteen registered bidders were present among the approximately 60 people who had gathered for the auction.
The land was most recently used for agricultural purposes.
