Hospital makes another deal: Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center has purchased two office buildings on Brittany Drive for $4.7 million. OLOL bought the buildings from Surgi-Center Limited Partnerships in a deal that was filed last week. One of the buildings is 21,000 square feet; the other is 11,000 square feet. Outpatient surgery centers previously work out of the buildings, but there are no plans to continue those operations. The buildings are close to OLOL’s college buildings.
Mid City merchant to remain open a bit longer: The Compact Disc Store, a locally owned music shop in Mid City, will be open for at least a few months more. Owner Brad Pope says he’s received a three-month extension on his lease, which was set to expire at the end of January. Pope, who wants to retire from the business, says he’s still trying to find a buyer.
