CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Mayor Joe McComb and Corpus Christi City Council leaders have approved the sale of the old Corpus Christi Fire Station No. 1 on Carancahua Street.

The decision was made during Tuesday's city council meeting.

The property will be sold for $325,000 to a San Antonio company for development into affordable- and moderately-priced housing.

The council used a one-vote measure to pass the item, bypassing possible bidding on the property.

The buyer has until Aug. 31, 2021, to finalize inspections and surveys on the property.
