CBJ selling three lots in Lemon Creek

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) The City and Borough of Juneau is currently accepting sealed competitive bids for three lots that have recently come onto the market – two in the Renninger Subdivision in Lemon Creek and one in the South Lena Subdivision

     Bids are due February 20, 2018 at 4 p.m. in the City Purchasing Office.


    Lands Committee Chair and Assembly member Mary Becker said this should help the housing stock in the community. “The Assembly is committed to releasing land for housing due to the need in Juneau. The lots in the Renninger Subdivision are ready to be sold and are perfect for a developer,” Assemblymember and Lands Committee Chair Mary Becker said. “They are large lots with high density, utilities, sidewalks on both sides, and are close to the school and bus line. They are definitely in prime time for buying and building.”


    Lot 4 and Lot 5 in the Renninger Subdivision are located directly across from Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School in Lemon Creek. The subdivision’s D-15 zoning allows up to 15 units per acre for each property. At 3.78 acres, Lot 4 can hold up to 56 residential units while Lot 5’s 4.38 acres can hold up to 65 units. All lots come equipped with road frontage, electric, cable, telephone, sewer and municipal water service. Starting bid price for Renninger Lot 4 is $412,000; Renninger Lot 5 is $382,000.


    CBJ completed the Renninger Subdivision in 2016; its namesake, Jackie Renninger, was a former Juneau Police Department officer. Renninger Lots 2, 6, and 7 were purchased by the Alaska Housing Development Corporation, and Lot 3 was purchased by the Juneau Housing Trust.

    The other lot is in the South Lena Subdivision, a few minutes away from disc golf at Aant'iyeik Park and NOAA’s Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute. CBJ has been selling South Lena Subdivision lots since 2007. Lena Lot 10, also known as Parcel #26, has road frontage along Ocean View Drive. The 1.07 acre lot is zoned D-3 residential and comes equipped with electric, cable, telephone and water. There is no municipal sewer available, and installation of an on-site wastewater and disposal system is required. The starting bid price for Lena Lot 10 is $99,000.
