     Memphis-based Cypress Realty Holdings Co. has bought an office building at 7628 W. Farmington Blvd., on the northwest corner of Farmington and Germantown Road in Germantown, for $634,615. Operating as Cypress Realty Holdings Co. II LLC, the company bought the building from Lyle E. and Mary C. Muller on May 1.
     The 6,206-square-foot building was completed in 2007 and houses a Fidelity Investments office. It sits west of the Walgreens at 7650 Farmington Blvd. and east of the Shops of Saddle Creek North.
     "It's an investment for us, it's something that we're looking at for a long-term hold and it's something that fits in well with some of the other properties that we have," said Cypress Realty Holdings principal Joe Jarratt. "It's a high-quality building and triple-A location."
     Fidelity is the only tenant in the building, which was a build-to-suit for that company. The Shelby County Assessor of Property's 2008 appraisal is $730,900. The building sits on .78 acres in the Walgreens at Saddle Creek PUD.
