CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The U.S. General Services has finalized the sale of the former U.S. Sugar Grove Naval Station property in Pendleton County on Tuesday evening, transferring the property to Sugar Grove, LLC.
The new owner plans to turn the facility into a healthcare campus.
Robert Pike, who submitted the highest bid of nearly $4 million in December, is working with the Mellivora Partners from Birmingham, Alabama, to re-purpose the property into a healthcare facility that will focus on the needs of both active duty military personnel and the residents of West Virginia, according to the GSA Acting Regional Public Affairs Officer Sherrie Taylor.
A filing with the West Virginia Secretary of State’s office lists Thomas Dreshsler of Miami Beach as manager of Sugar Grove LLC and Timothy Segers of Birmingham, Ala., as organizer.
The property includes 123 acres of remote forest and open land. The facility has residential space, office space, dormitory style housing, eating facilities, recreational facilities and a fire and police station among other amenities.
The Sugar Grove site served as a Navy Information Operations Command (NIOC) base until Sept. 30, 2015.
