The former headquarters and distribution center for Body Central Corp. went up for sale today with a list price of nearly $5 million.
The listing comes a month after the company was forced to close all its stores after going bankrupt.
The building, at 6225 Powers Ave., is 116,901 square feet, including about 28,000 square feet of office space, according to county records.
Prime Realty's Eric Bumgarner, vice president of industrial brokerage, is the exclusive broker for the owner of the building, Powers Avenue LCC, which is managed by Beth Angelo, former chief marketing officer of the company.
Angelo is the daughter of Jerrold Rosenbaum, the founder of the company who served as the president and CEO until the Rosenbaum family sold a controlling interest in the company in 2006 to a group of investors led by WestView Capital Partners, which later took the company public.
At that same time, the company sold the building to the private equity firm for $1.15 million and then leased it back in a 10-year deal, Bumgarner said.
Body Central is in the process of liquidating assets and preparing remaining inventory and office equipment for auction.
The auction at the company's headquarters will begin at 10 a.m. March 10 with a preview the day before. Items will also be auctioned online at Moecker Auctions Inc.'s website.
The items being auctioned include IT equipment, computer systems, laptops, iPhones, warehouse equipment, forklifts, office furniture and office equipment. Clothing, accessories and the point-of-sale and security systems will be sold separately before the auction.
