The City of Binghamton is looking to sell the vacant piece of land in the heart of downtown Binghamton. Mayor Rich David hopes the space will be redeveloped by a private investor.

The Ross O'Neil building used to sit at 70 to 72 Court St. It was torn down in 2008 after it was deemed unsafe. The area was turned into green space after the City didn't receive any immediate proposals for development. Several years ago it was taken over by Occupy Wall Street protesters who camped out there.

The property is zoned Downtown Business District and will be sold as is. About 7,000 vehicles drive by the location each day.
