The town of Ossining has closed on the sale of its former police headquarters at 507 North State Road.
The new owner is Frank Scanga, president and CEO of Asixpoint Technology Solutions Group, Inc., says Town Supervisor Susanne Donnelly in an email this week.
“We are thrilled to have Frank and his group as part of the Town of Ossining community,” she wrote.
The 8,643-square-foot one-story brick structure on nearly an acre of land was built in 2005. The town stopped using the facility when it contracted with Westchester County to handle the police operation in 2011.
In December the town said it had reached an agreement with Axispoint to sell the building for $1,475,000.
The town began marketing the property in 2012 at a price of $3.5 million.
In November Axispoint, a technology services provider, asked the Westchester County Industrial Development Agency for a payment in lieu of taxes agreement instead of paying annual property taxes of nearly $60,000. The agreement called for the company to pay $18,000 the first year, rising to $60,000 by the seventh year, according to the IDA application, which we reported on earlier this year.

Axispoint said in its IDA report that it had intended to occupy the building with its 31 employees on June 1.
Axispoint is based in New York City and also has an office in Elmsford. The company has told county officials that it expected to spend roughly $150,000 to adapt the building for its uses.
