The price equated to $46 per square foot.
One building is 8,303 square feet, while the other is 16,565 square feet. The Hillsborough County property appraiser's office reports the larger building was built in 1925 and the smaller building was constructed in 1950.
The two-story buildings were vacant at the time of the sale.
