The state’s $1.5 million sale of Raleigh’s historic Heck-Andrews House has been completed, according to the governor’s office.The deal is part of Gov. Pat McCrory’s “Project Phoenix,” an initiative it says aims to return underutilized state properties to more productive and efficient use. “The sale of the historic Heck-Andrews House will allow this property to once again become a source of pride for downtown Raleigh and our state,” McCrory said.”Through Project Phoenix, we are saving taxpayers’ money and improving customer service to the citizens of North Carolina by ensuring underutilized property is being put to its highest and best use.”The Heck-Andrews house is located in the Blount Street Historic District. It joins two other historic properties that were sold this month in downtown Raleigh, including the Ashley House on East North Street and the Lamar House on North Person Street. The governor’s office says that other properties in the Blount Street Historic District are in various stages of closing, with offers accepted for the Cambridge House, the Bailey-Tucker House, the Watson House, the Worth House, the Gay House, the Andrews-Duncan House, the Higgs-Coble-Helms House, the McGee House, and the Heartt House. Collectively, the sales are estimated to return $7 million to the state.
