Holiday, Florida -- The former home of WTSP 10 News' transmitter tower, located about two miles from U.S. Highway 19 in Holiday, is about to go up for auction on April 3, according to the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
The 5-acre property complete with a 100-foot tower, two commercial buildings and a vacant home is nestled among a Holiday neighborhood and includes all kinds of electronics, including an 8-foot Doppler radar antenna.
Whoever decides to purchase the property may have to shell out at least a few thousand dollars in order to tear the tower down. If the new owner wants to keep it, auctioneer Bill Menish told TBBJ they would need to obtain a special use permit.
The auction requires no minimum bid and is open to the public. TBBJ says brokers who want the available 2 percent commission must submit a broker registration form 24 hours before to the auction, which begins at 12:30 p.m. Inspection of the properties will be held on March 27, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
