1499 Zeager Road

The seller, which had ac- quired the property from its previous private owner through foreclosure, was represented

by the Cushman & Wakefield team of Gerard Blinebury, Leah Balerno, Pat McBride, and Adam Campbell. New owner

Sports Complex LP, an entity headed by former Auntie Anne’s Pretzels owner Sam Beiler, was represented by Tim Shreiner of

Prudential H.S.G. Real Estate. “We were able to secure the highest and best use buyer, a local investor, after negotiat- ing with several parties who had also expressed interest in redeveloping this asset,” said Blinebury. “After selling Auntie Anne’s Pretzels, the buyer was looking to reinvest back into the community. The availability of 2913 Spooky Nook Rd. provided the opportunity to do just that, and the result will be a vacant building that will be reborn as an important community as- set.” Once the repositioning is com- pleted, 2913 Spooky Nook Rd. will provide a venue for youth and family oriented athletics. The facility may also have a col- legiate athletic component, ac- cording to the new ownership.
