The McClellan Team has sold 713 Brown Street in Salisbury, MD. The 85,000 SF wood frame warehouse originally served as a railroad depot in the late 1800’s and is currently being utilized as warehouse space. This marks the second time McClellan has sold this facility.

McClellan first sold the large historic warehouse in 1997 as warehouse space to a company whose primary operations ran nearby. Now, 25 years later, John and Kelly have sold The Brown Street warehouse, often referred to as “Big Brown,” again.

The McClellan Team realized the incredible potential of such a property and its ability to offer value to a prospective buyer with vision. The rough exterior hides an expansive property located in the heart of Salisbury, zoned light industrial, and offering potential buyers’ immense opportunity. Though many thought the property was a “tough sell”, the McClellan team was confident they would find the right buyer.

Richard Fahey, owner and President of Peninsula Roofing said, “John is willing to take on challenging projects that others lack the vision to see to completion. In the end, it is all about trust. Trust that I am getting honest and transparent communications. Trust that my project is just as important as any he has. Trust that my return will be the best that anyone can provide.”

“The “Big Brown” transaction is a testament that beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. I was pleased to work with both the buyer and seller in this transaction and I look forward to the repurposing of a building that has sat largely vacant for an extended period of time.” Said John McClellan.

“If I can assist you in the evaluation or marketing of a unique asset, please do not hesitate to contact me. Remember, it is all about how the property is positioned in the market and finding the right buyer(s) that see value of your asset.” The McClellan Team can be reached at 410-543-2428 or or
