The vacant Wilbur Chocolate complex in Lititz could be sold by mid-April, according to a new marketing flier on the site from CBRE Inc.

CBRE and Minneapolis-based Cargill, the owner, declined comment on the asking price for the Lancaster County property on North Broad Street.


Cargill announced the closing of the facility in October.


Wilbur operated the chocolate manufacturing facility for 113 years in Lititz.


The marketing flier said the property includes the 179,798-square-foot manufacturing building on 3.3 acres plus two additional sites at 47 N. Broad St. and 7.7 acres of land to the rear of the factory.


Potential redevelopment opportunities include multifamily living, condominiums, retail, office, senior living and hospitality, according to CBRE.


CBRE is offering a 30-day marketing period to tour the property beginning March 1. It will begin accepting offers on March 31 and there will be a 15-day review to select a buyer, according to the flier.
