Stanley Nacewicz, the owner of the building that used to be home to Falk's Market in downtown Plainville, said he is open to selling the building at the right price and under the right conditions.
Town officials view the building as key to their plans to redevelop the town center, and they have said that Nacewicz is asking too much for the property. The building is listed at $549,000, but officials say it is assessed at well under $200,000.
Nacewicz, the city assessor for Attleboro and a member of the Plainville Board of Assessors, said the building would be assessed at a higher value if it were occupied by a business and is worth more than its assessed price.
He added that he recently turned down an offer of $525,000 because the prospective buyer planned to tear down the building. "My interest is in the preservation of that building," Nacewicz said.
