An 18.11-acre parcel of Forest Service land located at Highway and West Barclay Drive in Sisters has been sold.

Compass Commercial Real Estate Services announced the sale on Monday, April 29.

Brokers Robert Raimondi, CCIM and Graham Dent represented the Forest Service, and principal broker Bruce Churchill represented the buyer, Three Sisters Holdings, LLC in the transaction valued at $1.5 million.

The property is one of three parcels of the Forest Service’s approximately 80-acre administrative site, located along Pine Street in Sisters. The two remaining parcels consist of 14.61 and 47.06 acres, and those parcels remain available for sale.

The Forest Service will use the funding from this sale and the sale of the other two parcels to build more accessible and energy-efficient facilities. The agency has long had plans to build a new headquarters facility in Sisters.

“This sale moves us forward toward our goal of providing better services for visitors and improving employee safety while reducing our operating costs,” said John Allen, forest supervisor, Deschutes National Forest.

Sisters District Ranger Ian Reid told an open house audience in April that a new Forest Service headquarters facility is planned to be located along Highway 20 west of Rail Way, just beyond the new GrandStay

Hotel.

According to a press release, the buyer is affiliated with Kevin Spencer of Empire Construction and Development and they plan to offer 2.5 acre industrial lots; they look forward to working with the City of Sisters and Economic Development for Central Oregon (EDCO) on this parcel of land.
