Details: A 16,085-square-foot former Ike’s drug store at the corner of Summer Avenue and North Perkins Road in Berclair has sold for $2.7 million.

FSC FMC-FD Memphis TN LLC, which lists a Lake Como, N.J., address, bought the property at 4569 Summer Ave. on May 17 from FDS Holdings LLC and Blue Cedar Properties LLC.

In conjunction with the purchase, FSC FMC-FD Memphis TN filed a $1.6 million loan through Two River Community Bank.

Prior to the sale, on April 19, FDS Holdings LLC and Blue Cedar Properties LLC had received the property in a quitclaim deed from 3D Summer Partners LLC.

Last summer, 3D Summer Partners, which lists a residential address in Brentwood, Tenn., bought the property from Stephen L. LaFrance Pharmacy Inc. – the parent company of Ike’s – for $1.3 million. 3D Summer Partners also filed a $1.7 million loan through Trustmark National Bank at the time of purchase.

Built in 1952, the former pharmacy building sits on 1.5 acres at the southwest corner of Summer and North Perkins. The Shelby County Assessor of Property’s 2013 appraisal is $1.3 million.

USA Drug, a subsidiary of Pine Bluff, Ark.-based Stephen L. LaFrance Pharmacy, pulled out of the Memphis market in 2010, closing its 17 Memphis-area Super D and Ike’s stores and selling their prescription files to Walgreen Co.

Last month, Harold Ford Sycamore View paid $1.8 million for the 38,487-square-foot retail center April 8 from Belz Investco GP.

3100 New Frayser Blvd.

Memphis, TN 38128

Permit Cost: $4.4 million

Project Cost: $301 million

Permit Date: Issued May 2013

Completion: TBA

Owner: Nike Inc.

Tenant: Nike Inc.

Contractor: S.A. Comunale Co. Inc.

Details: The city-county Office of Construction Code Enforcement has issued a $4.4 million mechanical permit for work on Nike Inc.’s North Memphis distribution center at 3100 New Frayser Blvd.

The permit was issued to S.A. Comunale Co. Inc., an Akron, Ohio-based “mechanical, fire protection and HVAC services company,” according to its website.

Nike in January paid $2.2 million for about 200 acres of vacant land in Frayser from Belz Investco GP for the distribution center.
