Vacant Border Patrol station in Gila Bend for sale

With a minimum bid of $8,000, a former Border Patrol station near Gila Bend is on sale as part of an auction by the federal government.

The former station, originally built in 1964, is on auction through the General Services Administration's website for the next two weeks, until August 28. 

The station is located in Gila Bend at Highway 85 and East Pima Street, where Interstate 8 converges with Highway 85, about 112 miles northwest of Tucson. 

Vacant since the 1990s, the lot located on the "right of way" of Highway 85 includes a fenced, asphalt-paved parking area, and two ramshackle buildings: one an administration building of about 1,400 square feet, and a storage building of about 1,200 square feet. 

The minimum bid is $8,000 and requires a minimum bid deposit of 10 percent. 

Interested bidders can go to the GSA's website, or send their bid to the agency's office in San Francisco.
