The former Howard Johnson’s on New Haven Road could be getting a new lease on life.
The property, which closed in March, was auctioned off Thursday. The winning bid was around $650,000, according to the auctioneer, entered by a local individual working in partnership with another from Los Angeles.
James Keith, with Hilco Real Estate’s Elizabethtown office, declined to identify who won the auction, saying the sale is not yet closed. The bidding opened at $500,000 and was conducted both online and at the facility.
