Vacant Structures For Sale

The Landbank Authority owns less than 100 structures across the community, ranging in size and condition. The Office of Housing and Community Development (OHCD) offers various programs in order to sell structures and place them back into productive use of the neighborhood.
If you are interested in purchasing a structure from the Landbank Authority, please call the OHCD's Real Estate Coordinators at (502) 574-4200. The Real Estate Coordinators will walk you through every step of purchasing a vacant structure once they are inspected and assigned to one of the below disposition programs. 

Request for Proposals

OHCD issues a Request For Proposals (RFP) for structures that are ready for sale and renovation.

Last Look
  • Buyers can purchase these structures for $1.00 if they can prove they have the funds to pay for exterior renovations and structural repairs OR buyers can purchase these properties if they prove they can pay for demolition.  Buyers do not have to show OCD a plan for the site if they pay for demolition. 

  • The goal of the Last Look program is to allow buyers to purchase a structure that is a candidate for demolition.  Buyers will have 60 days to show interest in purchasing the property and save it from demolition.

  • Save the Structure: In the first 30 days of this 60 day window, the buyer can purchase the property if they can prove they have funds to pay for exterior renovation and structural repairs. The property will be deed restricted with renovation deadlines of 6 months for exterior and 18 months for interior. This option is available throughout the 60 days the structure is a part of the Last Look program.

  • Demo for Deed: In the second 30 days of the 60 day window, if the buyer shows proof they can pay for demolition, they can purchase the property then demolish the property and do not have to show OCD a development plan for the site.  Any future plans will still need approval by the Offices of Planning & Design and Construction Review.
