1. 20 acres in Collierville
Sale Amount: $1.8 Million
Sale Date: Dec. 11, 2008
Buyer: Central Church Inc.
Seller: Marion L. Waldrup Sr. Revocable Living Trust, Frederick T. Stukenborg, Trustee
Loan Amount: $1.5 million
Loan Date: Dec. 15, 2008
Maturity Date: March 5, 2010
Lender: SunTrust Bank
Details: Central Church Inc. has bought a 20.9-acre parcel of vacant land directly behind its 2005 Winchester Blvd. location in Collierville for $1.8 million from the Marion L. Waldrup Sr. Revocable Living Trust, Frederick T. Stukenborg, Trustee.
Zoned residential, the property fronts South Houston Levee Road on the eastern side of the road. Central Church administrator Jim Pritchard said the land acquisition was strategic for the church.
“It’s the last piece of property that’s between us and Houston Levee, and obviously they don’t make any more of that (land),” Pritchard said. “Over the last five years we’ve just been praying and searching the Lord and seeing what might work out, and He just orchestrated it in such a way that we were able to purchase that property, so we moved to that end.”
The Shelby County Assessor of Property’s 2008 appraisal is $682,900.
Pritchard said the church plans to build a road through the property, connecting the church with South Houston Levee Road, but nothing is imminent since the church would need approval from Collierville before moving forward.
“That’s a pretty important piece to be able to have access to Houston Levee at some point in the future,” Pritchard said, “so we thought that was something the Lord would have us go ahead and do.”
