A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUR NEW BUSINESS OR INVESTMENT COMES WITH HUGE BUILT-IN VALUE: 3,804 sq. ft. building on Business Hwy 69 (140 N. Main St.) is now available, 1/2 block north of the Downtown Square. Once home to Rusk's newspaper and 3 radio stations, this building is centrally located with 1,200 sq. ft. warehouse space, 2,664 sq. ft. office space, large common area and 4 street parking spaces. Rusk's code allows for apartments downtown so a reno for apartments would be possible. The building has been maintained wonderfully, has a new $37K TPO roof (installed October 2020) with a transferrable 20-yr warranty and is move-in ready. This spot is also ideal for a small manufacturing operation due to its warehouse square footage with loading dock and driveway exiting to Henderson Street . Rusk is growing with a new state hospital and progressive “can do” community spirit. Now is the best time for an investment opportunity where you can get a large space at a small per square foot cost. • Home to Rusk State Hospital and 1,200 jobs • Home to Skyview and Hodge Units, Texas Department of Criminal Justice, and 1,000 jobs • Home to the Texas State Railroad • Rusk is the county seat of Cherokee County, at the intersection of U.S. Highway 69 and U.S. Highway 84 • Rusk is one of 63 Promise Fund Cities in the United States.
