There may be changes coming to the Carter Building as soon as April.
The building is listed with ReMax and is under contract to be sold potentially within the next two months. While the buyers do not want to disclose their identity, realtor Tammy Kelly said that it is being purchased as an investment and Kelly will be leasing out the property on their behalf.
Robert Carter built the structure in the mid-2000s as a toy museum and ice cream parlor that housed contents of his personal collection, such as antique toys, a carousel and bumper cars.
Not long after Carter’s death in 2011, all the contents of the building were auctioned. The property was also put up for auction, but no buyer was found.
The 14,000 square-foot building includes an elevator and three garage spaces.
