Former Manderbach Ford property purchased by real estate company

Platinum Partners Realty LLC bought the lots at 4450 and 4500 Fifth St. and 301 Darby Ave in Muhlenberg Township, according to Berks County real estate records. The lots were previously the home of the Manderbach Ford show room and sales lot which relocated to Hamburg in 2017.

Dorothy L. Manderbach sold the Muhlenberg Township property to Platinum Partners Realty for $2.55 million.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices in Spring Township is listing the lots for $3.6 million. The lots, made of 5 parcels, totaling 7.5 acres are commercially zoned. The buildings on the property include an auto showroom, service area, and body shop.

The main building, which houses the showroom and service area, has 18-foot ceilings and is 27,345 square feet. One out building is 3,922 square feet. An adjacent body shop with 7 bays is 7,665 square feet.

Nelson Oswald, the Realtor listing the property, says that there has been strong interest in the entire property. He is currently negotiating with several buyers. “Some are interested in buying the whole property and using the existing buildings,” Oswald said, “while others are looking to buy just parcels of the property.”

The lots are located along the 222 5th St. highway corridor, a busy commercial area.
