Overview / Comments

Incredible opportunity to own a piece of Topsail Island in the heart of Surf City. Consisting of 8,114 sq ft of expansive office space, located on the sound side of N. New River Drive, just three blocks from the oceanfront is currently the home of the Surf City Police Department. This is an unbelievable real estate investment opportunity and is well suited for its new owner. From office, retail, restaurant, vacation rental - or complete redevelopment, the opportunities are seemingly endless. Completed in 2009, the property boasts knockout views of the Intracoastal Waterway, Topsail Island Bridge, and Atlantic Ocean. In addition to the building, the land surrounding is also available and contains additional opportunities for residential or commercial use and has direct water access. Current zoning is G-1 to accommodate the governmental use but lies within the Central Business District, and the Town has already agreed to rezone to C-1. The Town is the seller of this property and will entertain offers on the assemblage or select individual pieces and would ask that only serious inquiries be submitted. The Town is building a new municipal complex and is anticipated to move into this new space in late April 2021.

Area Description: Surf City has been the commercial heart of Topsail Island for over 60 years. The town has grown from a small fishing village that was home to a handful of families to a year-round community of around 1,900. Visitors enjoy Surf City as “the way the beach used to be,” quiet and serene. Surf City’s clean and uncrowded beaches have become the town’s main attraction where visitors can enjoy the sand on their feet and the peaceful rhythms of the ocean under a deep blue sky. Surf City is home to a variety of indoor and outdoor dining facilities that feature coastal Carolina cuisine. The central business district offers a surprising choice of shopping opportunities from gift boutiques outdoor equipment suppliers. West of Surf City, Topsail Sound and the Intracoastal Waterway separate the island from the mainland. This narrow body of water provides the perfect setting for canoeing, kayaking, water skiing and fishing. Incorporated in 1963, Topsail Beach (begins 4.2 Miles to the south) reaches from Surf City’s town limits to the southernmost tip of the Island. Not only is it home to beautiful beaches, but it is also home to several restaurants, a general store, unique shops, and a fishing pier. Locally owned and operated motels offer views of the ocean or the sound. The town also has it’s own marina and boat ramp where visitors can participate in all sorts of water activities. Topsail Beach is home to the famous Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center where staff and volunteers care for sick and injured sea turtles. Once the turtles are well, they are released back into the ocean. A short walk for the Sea Turtle Hospital is the Missiles and More Museum where visitors can learn about the unique history of the island. During the third week of October, the town hosts “Autumn with Topsail,” a festival that features juried artists who are displaying and selling their work. (*The above two descriptions are courtesy of Pender County Tourism) On North Topsail Beach (begins 2.9 Miles to the north), you’ll find plenty of free parking at four public beach accesses as well as lots of wide-open beaches for sunbathing and fishing. On all of Onslow County’s uncrowded family beaches, you can unwind into a leisurely day focused on the sound of the waves or chatting with your friends.
